Ken Zimmerman Jr

What do you do outside of work? family? hobbies? 

I have taught martial arts: Taekwondo, Judo and Cane Self-Defense for twenty years. In addition to my three children, I have trained fourteen nieces and nephews along with two great nephews. My grandson and great niece will start training soon.

What’s something that most people don’t know about you? 

I am part of a blended family. I grew up with seven sisters. Mom and Dad (our stepfather) had eight children, twenty-eight grandchildren, eighteen great grandchildren, four great-great grandchildren and counting. We normally have a new addition to the family every 18 months to 2 years.

Name some things you’d take to a deserted island.

My Cane, a copy of the Brothers Karamazov and a picture of my grandsons.

What is the best advice you’ve received and who was it from?

“Tough times don’t last. Tough people do.” – my maternal grandfather, Gilbert P. Ellis.
