Jodi Reese

Jodi was born in Santa Monica, CA. She is one of 8 siblings and loves her family. She moved to Utah in 1988 to pursue her education. She began working for Larkin Mortuary as a preneed sales consultant in 2015. She loved sitting down with families and helping them plan out their funeral services in advance and seeing the relief that this brought to them and their families. This love of service to others eventually led her to her current position as the Director of Utah Simple Cremations.

Some of Jodi’s best memories include being involved with foster care, spending time with her family on trips abroad, backpacking throughout Europe, remodeling every single home that she has lived in and applying her personal touches and shopping whenever she can.

Jodi is happily married with four children and resides in Holladay.
