Jake Garner Caskets was founded on the idea that people should have choices.


Our Mission

Jake Garner Caskets has always focused on building a product that is safer on the environment, and helps to support the local economy.  The casket industry is run by large manufacturers for the most part.  There are small operations around the country making traditional coffins, and numerous hobbyist woodworkers making urns.  What sets Jake Garner Caskets apart, is that we distribute only through funeral homes, we are not a company that sells to the public. We also make sure that we get as much content locally as possible, this does not mean that every aspect of a product is 100% local, but if we can get anything locally we will.

Jake Garner Caskets is committed to protecting the environment, the health and safety of our employees, and the community in which we conduct our business. It is our policy to seek continual improvement throughout our business operations to lessen our impact on the local and global environment by conserving energy, water and other natural resources; reducing waste generation; recycling and; reducing our use of toxic materials. We are committed to environmental excellence and pollution prevention, meeting or exceeding all environmental regulatory requirements, and to purchasing products which have greater recycled content with lower toxicity and packaging, that reduce the use of natural resources.
