The focus and dedication of the Board and volunteers of the ZJMF in achieving it's goal is incredible! This year our organization, PawPADs, benefitted from the proceeds of the 2013 Golf Tournament. Watching how hard and earnestly they work in Zaks memory and how much they share of his legacy with the community would make Zak proud. It certainly does me! I'd urge anyone considering supporting ZJMF do so with a confident heart that your support will be well used and even a small part of the world a better place because of your support.
Once again, I am so happy that I have had the opportunity to be even a small part of the ZJMF and the great work that they do! I am very impressed with the amount of work, time, energy, love, caring and talents that the Board of the Zakkary Johnson Memorial Fund put into everything that they do!! Just like Zakk was, they are an inspiration to us all!! The organizations that they raise funds for were some of Zakk's favorites, and so important for persons with disabilities!!! I applaud this group whole-heartedly!!
The ZJMF is a young nonprofit, as was Zakk when he left us. But both, in their young lives, made a huge impact in their own way! I've been impressed with the entire organization and good that has come from the ZJMF!! It honors Zakk's memory in a way that is very touching and heartfelt!! Zakk is smiling!!
Nothing can compare with Zakk's shining presence though and the love he gave to all those who knew and loved him!! He was an example we could all learn from!! I'm blessed to have known him and so glad that I've been able to volunteer for the ZJMF!!
The Zakkary Johnson Memorial Fund is a wonderful tribute to an awesome young man who touched so many in his brief time on this earth. Seeing the love and commitment of his family continue on in heartfelt ways by contributing to such worthy causes is inspiring. Zak's life truly continues to impact others....I will be back next year!
The Zakkary Johnson Memorial Fund has raised funds to help several organizations that were important to Zakk. This is an organization that truly "pays it forward". I am privileged to be able to participate in this special golf tournament.

Knowing Zakk Johnson during his brief life enriched mine. It is not surprising to me that his family continues to honor him by establishing this fund. The Zakkary Johnson Memorial Fund is based on a very simple concept...paying it forward. All the organizations funded by this memorial are ones that Zakk utilized during his life. It has been a privilege for our family to be able to continue Zakk's legacy by providing assistance to others.
The Zakkary Johnson Memorial Fund is an organization that helps people with disabilities through an activity that Zak LOVED, golf. The golf tournament and silent auction is a great evening to honor and remember the life of Zak, a young man who left us far too soon. His pictures are there to remind everyone of his spirit and that is evident in the evening itself. The Memorial Fund donates funds to different organizations that Zak benefited from. The Memorial Fund is an excellent Nonprofit organization and I look forward to this years event and the opportunity to spend the night remembering Zak.
I have attended the golf tournament and it was an awesome experience. This foundation is making great changes for people with disabilities.
I'm a member of the ZJMF Board; and, I'm grandmother to Zakkary Johnson, a child who changed my life. At birth, Zak's prognosis was grim. The medical pros said he would be little more than a vegetable. I had never really been around people with disabilities and truth be told, "they" made me nervous. Well, I fell in love with Zak within minutes of his birth --- to heck with disabilites. And, through his 15 years he, along with his family, taught me about potential, about joy, about love, about what is really important. Sadly, he left us all too soon -- at only 15 years of age. It was decided that his legacy would live on by helping others with disabilities be included, have some fun, achieve their potentials. Thus, the Zakkary Johnson Memorial Fund. We are a young organization -- founded in 2012. We are dedicated and we care about our mission. Zakkary inspired us as well as all those who got to know him.
The Zakkary Johnson Memorial fund is an organization that is filled with Compassion and Motivation to provide amazing opportunities for children with disabilities. Named after a very special child, Zakkary Johnson was a beacon of love, life, happiness, and the purest example of overcoming any obstacles with a smile. It is amazing to be able to witness his spirit live on through other children through this Memorial Fund. Simply an Amazing organization!
This is a great organization that helps people with disabilities! I would recommend supporting it!
