From the time Jeremy was five years old, he had a passion to become a funeral director. He was first introduced to funeral service when he attended the funeral of his great grandmother. From that moment on, Jeremy knew that his calling in life was to be of service to others as a dedicated funeral professional.
In 2002, Jeremy graduated from the San Francisco College of Mortuary Science in San Francisco, California. After graduation he immediately began his internship with Memorial Mortuaries.
Throughout his tenure; Jeremy has accepted numerous responsibilities including: crematory operator, crematory manager, funeral services manager, location manager and Vice President and General Manager for Memorial Redwood Mortuary. His duties have included the development of customer service practices and best practices for mortuary operations.
In an effort to serve families by exceeding their expectations and having the heart of a teacher, Jeremy chose to earn his certification as a Certified Funeral Service Practitioner, CFSP, in an effort to renew his commitment to funeral service.
Despite his fear of public speaking, Jeremy decided to tackle his fears head on and has become a successful presenter for Memorial Mortuaries Death Café, a community outreach and marketing event designed to help people learn about death in an educational and enlightening forum.
Jeremy has learned to help families understand the importance of making the best decisions. His efforts have greatly helped families better understand their options, create more meaningful services and ceremonies that bring about a healthier grieving process for everyone.
Throughout his career, Jeremy has been touched by the many examples of outstanding funeral directors. He clearly has a passion and desire for the work at hand. He has chosen to run as District I Representative in order to serve and give back to the amazing funeral directors of the great state of Utah.
In his spare time, Jeremy loves spending quality time with his wife Rachael and four beautiful children: Gabriel, Taygen, Pacey and Emerson. Jeremy enjoys being outdoors, fly fishing, doing yardwork, tinkering in the garage and working on various projects around the house.
