Susan Jacobs, Funeral Director and Owner of Jacobson Funeral Home attended the 2019 National Funeral Directors Association convention and expo held in Chicago, IL.
Staying connected to the funeral trends and continuing education as a licensed professional is ongoing. Some of the instruments that Jacobs looks to incorporate are online funding/payment options to cover funeral costs, Glass Remembrance sculptures made with cremains, expand green burial options and biodegradable urns.
“The innovative vendors at the Expo Hall provided me with information and ideas that I can use to better serve our families. As I focus on the future of funeral service it is important that I can bring new ideas to our community that will support people’s needs in the decade to come”, says Jacobs.

Courtney Jones, Apprentice Funeral Director with Jacobson Funeral Home, completed a two-day intensive Monument training with Sunburst Memorials in St. Cloud, MN.
Jacobson Funeral Home has been representing Sunburst Memorials for over 25 years. Courtney will now be able to assist you with all your monument and memorialization needs. She has learned about all the new products available along with being able to design and personalize a memorial for you specifically. Using the Monuvision system, Courtney can customize a design for you to visually see your design options.
Courtney was able to tour a quarry and the plant where the monuments are created, from start to finish. “This training opportunity allowed me to get a better understanding of all that is involved with creating a memorial that can be personalized for every individual. I will also be able to create markers for pets and monuments for civic and public display”, says Jones.
