On November 9, 2013, Jake Zeman collapsed at the finish line of the Savannah Rock ‘n’ Roll marathon from a previously undetected heart condition. He died after running the race of his life while doing what he loved. Jake was an artist, an athlete, a runner and a friend. But above all else, he was a loving husband and father.
To honor Jake and his wife, Erin, Jake’s friends have partnered with the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series to promote a college fund for Jake’s two year old son, Jack. Jack will never know his father, but through your giving, he will know his father’s heart and that he was well loved.
Jake was fond of ending his emails and texts with a simple word, one that captures Jake’s character and epitomizes our mission here. With your help and support of Jack, we can ensure that Jake runs on.
