Young Janesville man who inspired rock band, motorcyclists and an NFL Quarterback dies


A young Janesville man, whose courage in the face of a long battle with cancer inspired everyone from a rock band to hundreds of area motorcyclists, died Tuesday.

Zachary (“Zach”) Olson was just 19. A 2018 graduate of Janesville Parker High School, Olson fought cancer throughout most of his childhood.

During the final months of his life, NBC15 News shared the story of how hundreds in the Janesville community came out to a fundraiser to support him in February, and how the rock band Shinedown and hundreds of area motorcyclists stepped up to grant him two final wishes.

In March, Olson got to meet the members of Shinedown, his favorite band, backstage. The band gave him a special seat up front at their Milwaukee concert.

His mother, Miranda, told NBC15 News, “My heart was full, my eyes were full, it was amazing. To see that happen for him, to know that’s all he wanted, I couldn’t think of anything better.”

In April, Miranda asked area motorcyclists to make another of her son’s final wishes come true–seeing a large group of motorcyclists drive by.

They showed up in force….some 600 strong…as Olson watched from a wheelchair, covered by a blanket on the cold April day. Miranda said, “I couldn’t hold it together because I could not believe how they kept coming and coming. I never imagined this many people would be here.”

Zach Olson also had a lifelong friend and supporter in former Badger and Packer quarterback Scott Tolzien, who stayed in touch with and visited Olson throughout his life.

In his obituary, Olson’s family wrote, “Throughout most of his childhood, Zachary fought a courageous battle with cancer.

Although in the end brain cancer claimed his life, he never once allowed his health to bring him down. Even on his darkest days, Zachary would still smile. He truly had a heart of gold.”

Olson is survived by his mother, Miranda; brother, Gavin; grandparents, Ron & Terri Pass; and aunt and uncle, Tanya & Mike Campbell.

A funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, May 4 at Schneider Funeral Home in Janesville, with a visitation Friday from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the funeral home.
