Death Cafe profile for Jason
Location: United States
Hello, my name is Jason. I am a Family Service Counselor for a Dignty Memorial funeral and cemetery provider. I have helped many families prepare for and cope with the loss of a loved one.
I have seen many ways of how people handle death and have witnessed many practices and rituals associated with death.
I have personally lost close family and friends. I am currently handling the affairs for my father who is approaching the end stages of his life. Death is not a scary thing when you have an understanding of it.
What brings you to Death Cafe?
I am looking to bring the taboo discussion of death to a comfortable conversation that everyone needs to have to understand the emotional impacts, financial impacts, religious impacts, etc that the passing of a loved one has on people.
