To Be Honored

JCC to host Brighton Volunteer Ambulance vehicle being dedicated to EMT, Zhe "Zack" Zeng. Zhe “Zack” Zeng gave his life trying to help save others’ lives at the World Trade Center on 9/11.

9/11 hero to be honored by Brighton Volunteer Ambulance at the JCC May 26.

Zack was one of over 400 rescuers (police, fire, and EMS) that perished that day, but what was unique about him was his connection to Rochester, and most particularly to Brighton Volunteer Ambulance.

receiving his B.A in 1995 and his M.B.A. from the William E. Simon Business School in 1998. While Zack was at UR his father died, which profoundly affected him. He wanted to give back to society, and his mother encouraged him to do so. That is when Zack joined BVA to become an EMT. He trained and worked side-by-side with other volunteers, and was a well-liked member of the team.

A special dedication service will take place at the JCC at 4pm on Thursday, May 26, in memory of Zack as Brighton Volunteer Ambulance (BVA) dedicates their new ambulance,“Brighton 3059” in perpetuity “In memory of Zhe ‘Zack’ Zeng and all the rescuers who died on September 11, 2001, So Others May Live.”

After returning to Brooklyn to support his family, Zach was on his way to his job in the lower financial district that fatal day when the twin towers were struck. Zack saw the towers ablaze and his natural instinct as an EMT took over. He gathered first aid kits from the building where he worked and raced to the scene of the devastation.

The public is invited to attend the event that afternoon in front of the Jewish Community Center. Local dignitaries and representatives from all public safety agencies will be present at the dedication. The new BVA vehicle, Ambulance 3059, will be on display. Speakers and a video will explain the relevance of Zack’s contribution. Light refreshments will be served.

There are reports that Zack assisted FDNY firefighters in carrying victims to safety. His heroic actions are best documented in video footage taken by Fox5 NY News at the base of the WTC South Tower. A scene shows Zack kneeling over one of wounded, now his “patient,” rendering patient care. Zack called his mother from the scene and said things were very chaotic. He then said he had to go to help rescue more people. She never heard from him again.

In Jewish terms, Zack’s was an act of “gemilut hasadim,” an act of loving kindness. This is an important Jewish value that will be shared with the community as well as children of the JCC Gesher Before and Afterschool program at the event. Here is Zack’s story:

Join us at the JCC on May 26 to learn more about this heroic man and friend to many of the staff at Brighton Volunteer Ambulance. Thanks to them, Zack’s memory will live on through Ambulance 3059 and future replacements for it.

Born in Canton, China, Zack emigrated with his parents and brother, settling in Brooklyn when he was 15. He came to Rochester to attend the University of Rochester,
