    The very first time that my Son and I met Zach.(& Greg too) was at my Brother Ray’s 80th Birthday Party @ the East Mountain, C.C. in Westfield, Mass. on 6/7/21. I felt that Zach and I seemed to bond right away.as we talked about our Family ties . Both Zach & Greg were really having a great time ,as they mingled & chatted with My Son (Hank Jr) ;my Niece Tina, etc. I will forever remember his warm and charming smile. We were so happy to meet Marilyn (Niece) and her two fine Sons….and will never forget this time with them. Zach ! May you rest in Gods Heavenly Peace.

    I remember how he would come in and ask you for stuff while I would be in your class doing therapy. He grew up to be a handsome and loving young man. My heart just aches for you, dear friend.

    It was a pleasure having Zach as a part of my team the last two plus years. Smart, quick learn and a great sense of humor. The quiet ones are who you need to look out for and Zach was as devilish as the next. We hired Andrew Serhan based on Zach’s reference, but the only problem was “Andrew” and “Drew” were already claimed. Zach asked Serhan what he wanted us to call him to which the response of “anything but Andy”. Zach strongly urged us to call him Andy! To the entire Hovsepian family – everyone at VanEck share your sorrow and send our deepest sympathies.

    It was a pleasure to have known Zach. We worked together for about 2 years, first as members of the Operations group and later on the SecPorts team. He was bright, quick witted, and was fun to joke around with. He had a great laugh, a warm smile and wonderful outlook on life. it’s a terrible loss for us here at VanEck and my sympathies go out to his family. He will be missed.

    There’s probably a hundred stories I could tell about Zack and the dynamic duo of Zack and Brandons’ middle school escapades! Things that only a “boy mom” can truly appreciate! Born 5 days apart, in different states, meeting at preschool, they remained friends throughout all those years. Marilyn and I had many laughs watching those two whether it be at a joint birthday party, or when they would come to assist with the special needs kids. Zack had a HUGE heart and was always willing to be a friend to them. He was kind, polite, brilliant, and funny as hell! You will be greatly missed by many!

    Zach, I will forever remember your huge heart! You were such a positive role model to so many students at MHS with special needs . You always went the extra mile to make sure every student had a great time. May your smile shine bright down on all who had the pleasure of knowing you.
