Meet Richie Zimmerman

Proud father of Zara Tisch and Chief Role Model at Terez

What does joy mean to you?

Joy to me is real happiness and the time I’m really happiest is when I’m with my family. I have great daughters, great grandchildren, and a couple of good little sisters that make my life very special; my family is really my joy.

What are some of the small things you celebrate?

Truthfully, we celebrate everything, small or big, but even the small things we celebrate, we make into a big deal. We love to celebrate, and we love to do it with family.

Tell us about a really special time in your life, and why you treasure it.

When I met my wife. We got together and I had a wonderful, wonderful relationship with a beautiful woman.

We all have trying moments. What is something positive you did or chose to focus on to keep you moving forward?

I find myself a very lucky individual because of the richness we have developed as a family. Every time I get myself down or something gets me down, all I think about is how rich our family is. Not wealth, just rich in love and THAT keeps me going.

Tell us about someone who's been a positive influence
in your life.

My life has been full of people that have been positive influences, but the one person that keeps me going straight is Zara. Along with my other 3 daughters and definitely all my grandchildren are positive!

Last but not least: what's your favorite cake flavor?

Chocolate Mint Ice Cream Cake!
