Each year, Connecticut Magazine honors the "best and the brightest among Generation Next" when it publishes the annual "40 Under 40" list.
According to the magazine's website, nominations are made by friends, family members, coworkers, and Connecticut Magazine’s editors. The list includes individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds and industries.
The only Avon resident named to "40 Under 40" was Jeff (Zeke) Zyjeski, 39. Zyjeski is an attorney and lobbyist for Gaffney, Bennett & Associates in New Britain and a practicing Buddhist, according to Connecticut Magazine. He's a University of Connecticut graduate for both undergrad and law school, the magazine reported.
His nominator said he is "well-loved, respected and an overall wonderful person," according to the magazine.
Congratulations to all of the members of the "Class of 2013"!
