Meet Your Team

Jim Heald

Training and Development, Licensed Funeral Director

What game or movie universe would you most like to live in?
Tough question…..I’m not a gamer or a movie buff! So…not knowing how to answer…’Documentary Movie Universe’.

If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance at winning medal for?
Hmmm…I’m not athletic but having run 12 Boston Marathons…the only thing I might quality for and/or be interested in would be the Olympic marathon!

What’s something you like to do the old-fashioned way?
Barber shop…..nothing like the authenticity of an old school barbershop where you’re offered a shot or a beer if desired and a quality cut, razor or shave. Nothing like the ‘experience’ of an NYC barber shop. You pay for it but you know what you’re getting!

What’s the best single day on the calendar?
Thanksgiving. Hands down. Road race in the morning followed by celebratory bloody Mary’s and an afternoon with family, friends and too much food…and no gifts!

If you could see any musician that is either dead or alive, who would it be?
Lady Gaga (living) or Claude Debussy (dead)

What’s your favorite part about being a member of the Life Celebration Team?
Best part of being a part of the team is being able to work with like minded professionals in Philly and on the field with funeral directors who embrace the change. Literally, I work with directors to implement LC in all its facets from training, support, implementation, obituary writing, staging and being present for services. And to watch the families reactions and then genuine admiration and appreciation to their funeral director….priceless!
