Jamie Allar

Jamie Allar

 

Founder and President Jamie Allar has been entrenched in Preneed service, having worked directly with families in Wisconsin for over a decade.

Jamie knows the value of funeral service from having listened to what thousands of families have shared … that funerals really do matter.

The funeral profession is facing challenging times. You need a Preneed partner that understands these challenges well, and can respond quickly.

At Epilogue Planning Professionals, we are passionate about providing value to your families, with a meaningful experience that begins long before the need arises.

We can be stronger together.

A vigilant and compassionate Preneed team is your first line of defense against discounters whose sole focus is selling price versus value.

Taking time to educate families before the need arises is essential to the preservation of service, and time to a busy staff of funeral directors is often in short supply.

Funding advance funerals is only part of the story. We also aim to coordinate a well-documented customer file. Less paperwork for your at-need staff means they will have more time to focus on truly doing what they do best … attending to families.

“We have entrusted our pre-need program to Jamie Allar for nearly a decade. Jamie’s passion for funeral service is exemplified with hundreds of satisfied families served. The ability to count on a trusted pre-need partner has been a key factor in allowing our directors to focus on doing what we do best with at-need families. Jamie and the Epilogue team are real assets to our profession!” Frank Pisarski, Jr.

“We wanted to improve our preneed program to better serve the growing need in the Lakeland area. After researching numerous options, we made the right decision in partnering with the preplanning professionals at Epilogue. Not only are they compassionate and professional, they are exactly who we want representing our funeral home. Epilogue helps us give families all of their options without a high pressure sales pitch. We couldn’t be more pleased with the service they offer.” Mike Bolger, Owner & Jill Yelton, Manager

“I have had the pleasure of working with Jamie and Patricia from Epilogue Planning Professionals, for the past year. Their knowledge and expertise in funeral pre-planning has been remarkable. From arranging “table talk” community presentations, to meeting personally with families, they have promoted my business with great dignity and respect. I believe that Epilogue is a professional company that would be an asset to any funeral home. Epilogue’s aftercare card system has generated wonderful feedback, and allows us to demonstrate our continued care for families in that important first year after their loss.” Jeffrey Stahl
