Zach’s friend and teammate Pete Shoemaker made the following post regarding Zach’s passing:

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 sometime 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.
I’m posting this picture of him with my girls because this is how I’m choosing to remember my brother.”
We just got word that Zach Stewart is going to be able to help 50-100 people as a donor. So many people will be saved…
We urge anyone who has the means to please consider donating to Zach’s family to help ease their financial burden after their sudden and tragic loss.
We extend our heartfelt condolences to Zach’s family, friends, and teammates.
