Zach Stewart was a Precision Jiu-Jitsu Spring Mount instructor. Unfortunately, he passed away during jiu-jitsu class leaving behind his family, wife, and two sons, Harrison, 2 years old and Everett only 2 months old. Zach Stewart was 35-years-old and he passed away from previously unknown medical issues
Zach was also a school teacher of a Spanish language at SpringFord High School.
As we can see from his friends Pete Shoemaker’s message, Zach just passed away last night while doing what he loved doing. There were no any injury or trauma but he maybe had an aneurysm or something similar to an aneurysm that caused death.
Pete Shoemaker posted a picture of Zach with Pete’s two daughters on his Facebook profile with these words:
“I’m writing this post to let you know that Zach Stewart passed away last night while we were training at the gym
Nothing happened, no injury or trauma that we are aware of, he just passed away. Nothing is 100% conclusive yet, but he may have had an aneurysm or something similar. It makes no sense and I still don’t understand how this could have happened.
Thank you to all of you who helped try to save him. From those of you who were there at the gym to the doctors at the hospital thank you. We did all that we could, but nothing we could have done would have changed the outcome. So many people today are blaming themselves, including myself, but we must be rational and realize that is just our grief.
This seems so callous to be giving this information out in this way, but because so many people witnessed what happened, we thought it was necessary to send out this information on a broad scale.
Zach’s family will need all of our help for some time to come, but Karena has understandably asked for some space over the next few days. Please, if you have questions or concerns direct them to me for now. Karena needs time with her family.
Please keep Karena, Everett, Harrison and the rest of Zach’s family in your thoughts.
The gym will be closed for the rest of the week. We will be posting how to donate to his sons’ college funds and also to a scholarship in his name in the coming days.
I’m posting this picture of him with my girls because this is how I’m choosing to remember my brother.”
