On January 26th, 2011 - Make A Wish Foundation teamed up with Bellevue Skatepark to surprise young Ethan with his request to "be cool for a day". Friends, family, Graffiti artists and skaters, locally & nationally acclaimed, gathered to participate in making this a special day for him!
Class Project was able to document this event, and this finished product is our take on the festive day. We hope you enjoy it.
"Ethan Thomas Zakes (ETZ) passed away the morning of May 11, 2011. He was surrounded by his family's love when he left this world. Ethan was born July 22, 2000. While his life was short, he made an indelible impression on all he met. Ethan was unique, creative, fun, bold, and a real rebel. He loved skateboarding, graffiti, his friends, his dog Daisy, his cat Jasper, and most of all his family-especially his big brother Aaron."
This is for you ETHAN! You will always remain in our hearts & prayers!
