The Homewood Cemetery, Tom Roberts, COO

Jeff Hodes is both a green burial pioneer and a seasoned professional in consulting to conventional cemeteries. For our project, starting a new green cemetery in Western Pennsylvania, we needed help in creating our vision while tackling the practical realities of cemetery management. Jeff did both and kept us moving forward. What we especially appreciate about Jeff is that while he knows a lot, he also knows how to listen to a client’s particular needs. Jeff was truly invaluable to us, and we expect to continue to rely on his advice for many years to come.
