I met Zaq at an event where we played "husband and wife" aka Harry Potter and Ginny Potter for Harry Potters Birthday. We had the greatest time and became fast friends. We joked back and forth all night. Zaq will be missed deeply.

It was a joy to know "Zaq" over the 2 years of his time spent here at PTC. His maturity and politeness was a great first impression for being one of our younger students here at PTC. I knew he had a special gift of compassion and kindness. Over the quarters, I got to see Zaq's personality come thru his work. A talented individual with a gift of humor. His pleasant, caring personality also seemed to set the tone with his peers in the classroom, who were quick to become friends. I don't think I ever heard a negative word come from Zaq.
Cherishing the memories and praying for comfort for all of us.
