The Gardens of Boca Raton Cemetery & Funeral Home
Garrett Jacobs, CEO/Funeral Director

As hundreds of community and business leaders gathered to celebrate the ribbon cutting ceremony for The Gardens of Boca Raton Cemetery & Funeral Home Expansion Project in May of 2019, attendees were amazed that a cemetery could be this beautiful.
“This is a jewel in the heart of Boca Raton,” echoed throughout as the crowd of attendees gazed upon the manicured 22-acre property in the heart of our city. They gathered for the event in a lavish modern sanctuary designed for large crowds of people of all faiths.
Garrett Jacobs, a licensed funeral director with more than 30 years of experience partnered with the Maschler family of Boca Raton and North Bergen, NJ to purchase the property and become the CEO of the newly named The Gardens of Boca Raton Cemetery & Funeral Home in January of 2016.
Garrett then brought his own family into the business, beginning with his brother, Marshall Jacobs, who joined him a few months after the acquisition to serve as General Manager. Garrett’s son Bennett joined as a funeral director apprentice to his father, and nephews Ryan and Aaron, Marshall’s sons, now work in property management.
“Today the Gardens is a family owned and operated, full-service cemetery and funeral home like no other in the country. Our family is available around the clock to support your family and comfort them through the loss of a loved one,” says Marshall.
“Our tagline, ‘Here for you now, here for them always,’ says it all,” Garrett adds.
