Santa Monica-based Gates, Kingsley & Gates Moeller Murphy Funeral Directors, a local Dignity Memorial provider, announced the addition of Therese S. Jacobson as a Family Service Counselor.
Jacobson will work directly with families and individuals to pre-plan their life celebration and alleviate the burden of making the difficult decisions about final arrangements for their survivors upon their passing.
“We are delighted to welcome Ms. Jacobson to our family. She is a talented professional whose experience and skills complement and elevate the quality and breadth of service we provide,” said Jeffrey Baker, general manager, Gates, Kingsley & Gates Moeller Murphy Funeral Directors. “She will help families and individuals as they plan their own life celebrations or for their loved one.”
Prior to joining Gates, Kingsley & Gates Moeller Murphy, Jacobson worked as a corporate account executive at Montrose Travel.
Earlier in her career she held the role of airport sales manager for the Four Points Sheraton LAX.
Jacobson earned her bachelor’s degree in communications at California State University, Dominguez Hills, and her associate’s degree from Cerritos Community College where she was a part of the women’s swim team.
“I want families to understand that pre-need services are available for final arrangements and by having plans in place, they enable their loved ones to celebrate their life instead of having to mourn their loss,” Jacobson said. “To me, there is no greater responsibility than honoring and preserving the story of one’s life.”
