Born in Pottsville, on June 21, 1979, he was a son of Marie (Glovich) and Nelson E. Womer.
He was a 1997 graduate of Pottsville High School, where he was a member of the basketball and track teams and the band, where he played the trumpet. After high school he attended the University of Pittsburgh, graduating with honors, with a Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice.
Zack accepted a position at Fort Meade, Maryland, where he worked until August 2017. In his job, he had the opportunity to travel all over the world.
