The story of Jerrett Funeral Homes begins in the mid-1930s. Jack Jerrett dreamed of a career that would allow him to serve people in a meaningful way and he wanted to be a funeral director.
At the age of 18, Jack began an apprenticeship with the Speers Funeral Home on Dundas Street, where he received his funeral director’s license. At 23, he became one of the youngest funeral directors to purchase his own chapel. With the help of many friends and family members, including his future wife, Jack bought the former Nash Funeral Home at 1141 St. Clair Ave. W. in Toronto in 1937.
Although the funeral chapel was part of Jack's dream, the early growth and success of the business was very much a family effort. Jack's parents, John and Alice, sold their home and trucking business in order to join him in the funeral business. Frances Pauline Fritz joined the firm after she and Jack got married in 1939. She became one of the 1st licensed female funeral directors in Canada, in 1942.
The business prospered, and in 1954, Jack purchased the former Bennett Funeral Home at 4661 Yonge St. in North York, then known as Willowdale. In 1965, the Scarborough Chapel at 660 Kennedy Road was opened on the site of a former mushroom plantation.
Carrying on tradition
In 1967, tragedy struck. Piloting his own plane on approach to the Toronto International Airport, Jack died in a landing accident. His death came only a year after his father died and less than a year before his mother’s death. Long-time employee Bill Stephenson helped sustain the business through this difficult time, and Jack's son, John, subsequently joined the business full-time in 1968.
The business continued to grow, and in the fall of 1993, the new North York Chapel at 6191 Yonge St. was opened to replace the building in Willowdale and to better accommodate the needs of the diverse and expanding Toronto community.
