Karen and Bob Atkins of Atkins-Northland Funeral Home in Cloquet announce the addition of Chris Jacobson to their staff.
Jacobson was born and raised in Two Harbors, Minn. Following graduation from Lake Superior College in 2010, he and his wife, Laura, moved to Cincinnati to pursue his dream of becoming a funeral director. Jacobson graduated from the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science with a bachelor’s degree in 2011.
Jacobson’s desire to help others by becoming a funeral director started at a young age and that desire has been strengthened since he started working at Atkins-Northland Funeral Home. He is looking forward to serving families in the Cloquet and surrounding areas.
Jacobson enjoys being involved in the community and church, spending time at the cabin with his wife, snowmobiling, ice fishing, and working on cars.
“Since joining us in November, Chris has successfully completed his educational requirements for licensure and became a Minnesota licensed mortician in January,” said Bob Atkins. “He has already begun meeting with families and has easily accepted and demonstrated the high level of service we expect.”
