Memorial Partner

Jake Zemen Memorial Fund
3 year old Jack Zeman lost his dad in the 2013 Savannah Rock ‘n’ Roll marathon but he did not lose his future. With your help we will send Jack to college.

We are a group of friends of Jake Zeman. On November 9, 2013, Jake collapsed at the finish line of the Savannah Rock ‘n’ Roll marathon from an undisclosed heart condition. To honor Jake and his wife, Erin, we have partnered with the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series to promote a college fund for Jake’s two year old son, Jack. Through your generosity, Jack 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. “Trust.”
