To have known Marc "Zayda" was to love him. With a smile that would light up any room, humor that spread laughter like wildfire, and a voice that wrapped around you like a warm hug, it’s impossible to truly measure the impact that Marc had on those around him.
From dollar bills transformed into fish, trips to Red’s, after shopping fashion shows, Fred is dead sing alongs, and armadillo bobble heads, we really did make the most beautiful memories together. Marc never took a single day for granted and fought like hell to give us all as much time as possible with him.
Give your loved ones an extra hug this holiday season and, if you feel so inclined, pour yourself a grey goose on the rocks with a twist in honor of Marc Schaffer aka The Hebrew Hammer aka our Zayda. We never get enough time with the people we love, but my memory of this absolute legend will live on in pictures, videos, voicemails and our heart for the rest of our lives. Rest easy Zayda, we love you.

I’m fundraising for JDRF because I believe in their vision of a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
With T1D, a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. The daily life of someone with T1D brings a multitude of challenges, including insulin injections that need to be carefully balanced with eating and activity, disruptive glucose monitoring, sleepless nights—and wishing for a tomorrow where this struggle doesn’t exist.
Living with T1D means there are no days off and there is no cure. But there is hope.
Your generosity will help JDRF fund life-changing breakthroughs to remove the incredible daily burden of this disease—until it no longer exists.
