    Had the pleasure of meeting Zac my first day at Buildertrend as we started on the same day. We hit it off instantly, ate lunch together as we didn’t know anyone else. Zac was such an awesome guy and he always had good energy and a big smile whenever I ran into him at the office. He will be missed and my heart goes out to his family, you are all in my prayers. RIP Zac !!
