Jesse Herman Humphrey was my father and he worked in funeral service for 56 years. He was my business partner, teacher and friend. He never grew tired of helping families who were overwhelmed by their loss. He died on March 23, 1997. It was only after that very personal loss for me that I realized that many of our policies and practices were no longer relevant. So, I decided to start with a completely blank slate in regard to how we go about helping our families. We began looking at each funeral as an opportunity to honor and celebrate the gift of life.
It is my belief that each life is completely unique. It is this understanding that drives my core beliefs about funeral service, and that has redefined our approach to each service. My staff and I began asking our families what was meaningful to them and we began measuring our success through interaction with each family following their service.
We are driven every day and with each service by a passion for excellence. On a daily basis we are privileged to hear personal life stories told by the deceased loved ones. I recognize that level of trust to be extraordinary and pledge that we will work diligently with your family as you honor your loved one.
Jim Bob Humphrey, President
