“The Fallen Seven” motorcyclists killed in a horrific New Hampshire crash in 2019 are being remembered with a memorial two years after their deaths.

The Jarheads Motorcycle Club over the weekend held an “emotional” unveiling of the granite monument near the crash site in Randolph, N.H., said Jarheads MC member Manny Ribeiro.

“It was very emotional for all of us,” said the Jarheads MC past president. “It goes to keeping their memory alive, and gives us a place to go up and reflect.

“I’ll be up there every year for the rest of my breathing days, along with the extended families of the seven who passed,” Ribeiro added.

Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, 25, is accused of slamming into the biker pack. He faces multiple counts of negligent homicide, manslaughter, driving under the influence and reckless conduct in the June 21, 2019, crash. He’s been in jail since then and has pleaded not guilty. He faces trial later this year.

The victims were members of the Jarheads club and were from New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

The seven victims were: Michael Ferazzi, 62, of Contoocook, N.H.; Albert Mazza Jr., 59, of Lee, N.H.; Daniel Pereira, 58, of Riverside, R.I.; Jo-Ann and Edward Corr, both 58, of Lakeville, Mass.; Desma Oakes, 42, of Concord, N.H.; and Aaron Perry, 45, of Farmington, N.H.

The memorial has their names on it, along with “The Fallen Seven” and “Never Forget.”

The granite monument also has the U.S. Marine Corps and Jarheads logos.

“It’s really, really nice,” Ribeiro said. “It’s a great spot for people to stop and reflect.”

Monday was the two-year anniversary of the crash.

New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu tweeted, “On the anniversary of the tragic crash in Randolph, which resulted in the death of the Fallen Seven and struck our state in a profound way, we pause today to pay our respects to those lost too soon, their families, the survivors, and to the first responders. We will never forget.”

The case against Zhukovskyy, who was licensed in Massachusetts at the time of the crash despite his driving record, sparked a high-profile Registry of Motor Vehicles shakeup, which revealed serious lapses and led to the resignation of the registrar.

A third-party auditing company found an RMV employee did not make any changes to Zhukovskyy’s driving record before the collision after looking at his record for approximately seven seconds.
