Co-founder of Aspen Cremation & Burial Service, Jon was born and raised in Lincoln. He has been a funeral director for more than 30 years.
After working at other funeral establishments, he formed Aspen Cremation and Burial Service in 1998 with Barb, his wife.
Jon adheres to the highest standard of ethical practices and is committed to ensuring we attend to all of your needs.
His commitment and genuine compassion toward families are characteristics that make him outstanding in his field.
Treating people with dignity is at the heart of what he does.
Barb helps with all aspects of the family business. She enjoys answering the phone and helping to arrange services and gatherings.
Barb is honored to be working with families to make pre-arrangements. She is passionate and believes in a “no pressure” approach and will never oversell you.
Barb believes you should make your own decisions on your own timeline. There will never be any follow up or reminder calls unless you request one. Aspen truly believes that if you want to do business, you will call us.
Barb has been given natural empathy and years of training and experience that includes best practices for communication. She tries to learn each loved one’s story — their likes, their interests, & their values — and use that knowledge to customize memorial folders and books.
Her warm gift of hospitality helps to create the perfect gathering or service. These skills also make meaningful connections with the families she touches.
