Our Staff

John Jacobson

Funeral Director

John was born and raised in a small town in Illinois, where he initially learned the funeral business from his father, who still owns and operates the local funeral home to this day. At the age of 15, he went to work for a larger firm in a neighboring town, and decided that he would make a career out of serving his community and people who have just experienced the loss of a loved one.

John graduated from the University of Minnesota in 2009 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mortuary Science, and currently holds licensure in Iowa and Illinois.

In his spare time, he enjoys hunting, fishing, spending time in Minnesota, rooting for the Green Bay Packers and spending time with his wife, daughter and beloved English Bulldog.
