As a manager for Desert Rose Heather Cremation & Burial, Jess Wakefield provides peace and comfort to families. Born and half raised throughout California, Jess moved with her family to the Seattle area in the summer of 1996. In the fall of 2017, Jess and her husband, Matt, moved from the Northwest to Tucson, where they instantly fell in love with the community and all its offerings.
Jess earned her degree in mortuary science from Lake Washington Institute of Technology after completing her bachelor's in environmental sciences and pre-law.
As a strong believer in continuing education, she is always looking for new things to learn or ways to teach others. Jess loves spending time outdoors, where you can find her running half marathons, hiking, mountain biking, playing soccer or just hanging out with friends.
