Selected Board Director Jake Johnson Gives Back to the Independent Funeral Service Profession Through Newest Book
Deerfield, Ill. — Jake Johnson, Board Director, Selected Independent Funeral Homes, has released his new book Staying Alive in the Funeral and Cemetery Profession. The book brings the insights funeral service professionals need to understand current trends and opportunities to buy, grow, and sell while building a proud legacy.
“This is a great book for the front-line employee as well as anyone in management to gain a better understanding and appreciation for what a funeral business has been, is, and will be facing as customer preferences shift and the internet and applications continue to gain popularity,” said Johnson. “I often am skeptical when I see a must-read for our profession, but this is a must-read,” said James H. Busch, Selected member and President of Busch Funeral and Crematory.
Johnson decided that 100% of the proceeds will be going back to the industry in a variety of ways. He plans to donate a portion of these books to mortuary schools to provide to those who are entering the profession. Proceeds also will be donated to the Funeral Service Foundation, ICCFA’s Educational Trust, and the Selected Educational Trust.
