Homesteaders Heroes Program Honors Outstanding Employees
West Des Moines, Iowa — Homesteaders Life Company, a national leader in pre-need funeral funding, has announced the recipients of its inaugural peer-nominated Homesteaders Heroes awards. The new award program recognizes employees who demonstrate Homesteaders’ values and make a significant impact on the success of the company and its customers.
Homesteaders Heroes award winners were chosen based on nominations from their colleagues. Homesteaders EVP-HR & Administration Judy Ralston-Hansen noted that this selection process makes the recognition particularly meaningful.
“We received a tremendous response for Homesteaders Heroes nominations, both in the quantity of submissions and in the powerful testimonials that employees provided about their coworkers,” Ralston-Hansen said. “We’re proud to recognize these exceptional employees who contribute to our company culture and promote our values every day.”
Homesteaders Heroes award recipients were named in four categories:
- Rising Star Award: Danielle Burmeister, Marketing Communications Specialist

- Innovation Award: Travis Nelsen, Senior Research Application Developer
This award recognizes an employee for the successful implementation of a new or updated product, service or program that results in a measurable improvement in the company’s performance, processes or brand strength.
- Outstanding Teamwork Award: Jason Richards, Business Analyst

- Enduring Impact Award: Karen King, Regional Director

The company also presented a special Enduring Impact Award to the family of Cheryl Phillips, a longtime Homesteaders Customer Service Representative, who passed away earlier this year.
