Zach Lawrence

Zach Lawrence


Zach Lawrence was severely injured in a car crash in March 2017 in the Republic of Georgia. While recovering in the Dodd Hall Rehabilitation Center at Ohio State University, the 38-year-old Dublin, Ohio, resident was given one button to push for “yes” and another to push for “no.”

“Do you like Michigan?” he was asked.

Lawrence immediately pushed the “no” button. And then — just to make sure everyone had heard him the first time — he pushed it again.

Sadly, Zach succumbed to his injuries in July 2018 and passed away peacefully.
