Managing Partner Oak View Cemetery & Memorial Park
Jarrod arrived onto the cemetery and funeral scene in 2018 with zero industry knowledge or experience and in three short years grew Holy Cross Cemetery & Funeral Center’s caseload and revenues by leaps and bounds. What he initially lacked in experience he more than made up for with his ability to exceed and succeed in any professional environment. He is excited to bring his knowledge and sales expertise to Carriage Services as Managing Partner at Oak View Memorial Park.
Jarrod has an enthusiasm for sales that started
with nearly a decade of experience in professional sports with the Trail Blazers,
Golden State Warriors and San Francisco 49ers. After helping successfully
launch Levi’s Stadium, Jarrod spent the next four years becoming an expert in
digital media strategy. His specialties in identifying new business
opportunities, sales management and advanced digital marketing have given him a
unique advantage entering into the cemetery and funeral industry.
A dedicated family man, Jarrod’s pride in his work is only outshined by the dedication he has for his wife, Elizabeth, and four children, Wesley, Amelia, Clarke and Eloise. In their family time they enjoy overnights in the travel trailer, learning from the great outdoors and collecting as many unique experiences together as possible.
