Jacci M. Koch

Funeral Director / Owner

I was born and raised in Waupaca, attended UW-Stevens Point, then earned my associate degree in Mortuary Science from Milwaukee Area Technical College. I became a licensed funeral director in 1999 and worked in the Fox Valley area for six years before coming back to Waupaca.  I am also a certified life insurance intermediary. 

I am a member of Farmington Lutheran Church where I have served as treasurer of church council since 2008.  Playing the violin, crocheting, hosting family get-togethers, cookie decorating, bowling and playing games are just a few of my favorite hobbies.

My husband Kasey and I enjoy camping, boating, fishing and four-wheeling with our three children, Aida, Brennin and Kallin.
