Zack Gross ’01, Matt Katz ’01 Announce Engagements
Two more members of the 2000 FCIAC championship team will be marching down the aisle.
Zack Gross ’01 is engaged to Sheera Jacobs. Zack — an All-New England player at Staples — graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, Sheera from Cornell. They met at New York University School of Law. Zack is an attorney at Wilk Auslander LLP, while Sheera is a lawyer at Gibson Dunn & Crutcher.
Zack’s proposal was unique. He devised a fake wedding for one of his college friends — including made-up invitations. Sheera thought they were heading to a wedding in upstate New York. But he took her to a B&B in Bedford, New York, and popped the question there.
Matt is engaged to Jenny Davidow, a classmate of Matt’s former teammate Mike Carey ’01 at Union College. Matt and Jenny met in New York through the Westport/Union posse, including Jordan Schur ’01. They currently live in Boston. Matt is an associate director at Segal Rogerscasey, a global investment solutions firm, while Jenny — with a graduate degree in psychology from New York’s New School — is working at Thomas D. Davidow & Associates, a consulting agency that focuses on family disputes and resolutions.
Matt asked Jenny to marry him during a picnic along the Charles River.
No dates have been finalized for either wedding. Congratulations to all!
