In the late 80's, Jonathan Lee traveled while expanding Genesis Enterprises, a wholesale ceramic urn company. In his travels, he could see a drastic change occurring in the funeral industry. Large corporations were buying family-owned funeral homes, cemeteries and funeral merchandise suppliers at an alarming rate resulting in large price increases. Once familiar faces disappeared. New and different staff members resulted in a loss of personal service to families. There was a tendency for pre-need sales teams to became overly agressive, which continues today.
The funeral industry was changing due to corporate buy-outs. The costs of funeral services, cemetery charges, and funeral related merchandise have continued to increase. These changes have now reached the mid-west including Lincoln, Omaha, and many of our surrounding communities. In order to provide alternatives to these high prices, Aspen Cremation Service became a full service funeral establishment, licensed by the State of Nebraska in February of 1998. "The opening of Aspen Cremation Service has brought the opportunity for people to have a choice." says Jonathan. He continues "We are here to provide Lincoln and southeastern Nebraska with an alternative to high funeral costs."
