Nya began grassroots organizing with Jordan Pollack after Zack's accident in an effort to establish better emergency services for the Sayulita area. Nya is the face of the organization - facilitating communications between peoples of Mexico and the USA, disseminating information about the work of the foundation, and - producing our t-shirts! In addition to raising two boys and her work with the foundation, Nya is continuing to run H2O Graphics, a t-shirt printing business in Port Townsend, WA.
Our mission is to support the development and ongoing operation of Emergency Services for the Sayulita and San Pancho area.

Foundation Co-Founder & Project Coordinator
Through his work with Firefighters Crossing Borders, a non-profit group providing assistance to emergency response agencies in Mexico, Jordan offered his assistance in developing emergency services for Sayulita and San Pancho. In June 2010 he wrote up a draft plan for emergency services development for the area which includes lifeguard services, community CPR training, ambulance service, and more. From this plan the Zack Chambers Foundation was born and continues to develop today. Jordan coordinates an annual symposium for fire departments in the state of Sinaloa, Mexico through Firefighters Crossing Borders, and serves as fire chief for the Breitenbush Fire Department in Central Oregon.
Dr. Moy Cuevas
Medical Program Director
Dr. Moy, along with his wife Dr. Paulina, have run the main medical clinic in Sayulita, 'Sayulita Doctor'. They have been the primary emergency service providers for the area and today are moving into other preventative medicine arenas. Dr. Moy continues his involvement with the fire department as a primary medical program lead as emergency services develop for the region. Drs. Moy & Paulina were the primary medical providers on the beach the day of Zack's accident and have been involved in the development of the foundation since then.
Lifeguard Program Development
A San Pancho resident and former city staffer from Santa Monica, California, Brian is the originator of the lifeguard program for the two communities. After serving as the coordinator of the San Pancho lifeguard group, Brian and family had to move back up to southern California but still remain connected.
Community Education Development
Founder of the non-profit group entreAmigos, an organization dedicated to providing greater opportunities for the children of San Pancho, Nicole has been instrumental in providing support services for the foundation. From providing meals and t-shirts for lifeguard participants to facilitating community CPR training, and much more, Nicole remains an instrumental person as the program develops.
Foundation Treasurer & Webmaster
Carrie came on board to develop the Foundation's web site, and soon found herself involved in multiple areas. Today she maintains the web site, handles many of the graphics and desktop publishing needs for the project, serves on the board as treasurer for the Zachary Chambers Foundation, and sits on the steering committee for the annual fundraising event in Port Townsend.
