Nicholas and Mary Gattozzi founded Gattozzi Funeral Home in the Cleveland, Ohio, neighborhood of Collinwood in 1946. In 1972, under the direction of Nicholas Jr. and Rose Marie Gattozzi, we expanded to our current location, Gattozzi & Son Funeral Home in Chester Township. Funeral directors Jerry Ritola and Jay Jones joined in 1992 and 1997, respectively, bringing more than 60 combined years of experience serving families in need.

In 1999, we became part of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers, assuring our clients an even higher level of customer satisfaction backed by attention from a locally-based team.

The Gattozzi family began with a commitment to a high standard of service, and throughout our history we have continued to maintain that same high standard. The team at Gattozzi & Son Funeral Home upholds this heritage and commitment to our community.

"From the first phone call and at every step along the way, the funeral director Jay Jones handled everything with dignity, patience, kindness, and grace. He knew the right questions to ask, how to phrase them well, and always gave appropriate suggestions. There was never a moment when we felt rushed or pressured. We wanted a simple and small service, and that is exactly what he helped us create. He and his staff always had time for us. If you are looking for a funeral home that will help you every step of the way during a difficult time, look no further."
