Garrett Jacobs, CEO, Funeral Director & Marshall Jacobs, GM/COO
THE GARDENS OF BOCA RATON CEMETERY & FUNERAL HOME
The Gardens Cemetery and Funeral Home is a family-owned and operated business, grounded by the personal attention and compassion of Funeral Director Garrett Jacobs, a 25 year industry veteran and CEO of The Boca Gardens Funeral Home, and his brother Marshall, who have helped the Gardens Cemetery grow exponentially in the community since acquiring the property in early 2016.
“My brother Marshall and I both feel a large responsibility to
our community to personally watch over families and loved
ones through the difficult times when a death occurs, and in the following years when family and friends visit to pay their respects.
Q: How has Covid affected your industry?
A: The many challenges during these times include higher stress levels, emotional and financial strain, loneliness, and the inability for families to grieve a death together. We need to have even more patience and understanding about the emotions families are experiencing by not getting the closure they would “normally” have when all of their loved ones could be together during their time of grief.
Q: Do you have plans to expand?
A: With more than 20 acres in the center of the city, and developed on only 11 of them, we have plenty of space left for many generations of loved ones to be laid to rest together.
Q: Do you handle all aspects of funeral and burial plans?
A: With Garrett not only being an owner, but also a licensed funeral director, we have a rare opportunity that at the time of a death of a loved one, funeral and burial plans can be made at the same time. We often hear how convenient and valuable this is to the community when they are in need.
