Jacci M. Koch

Funeral Director / Owner

I was born and raised in Waupaca, attended UW-Stevens Point, then earned my associate degree in Mortuary Science from Milwaukee Area Technical College. I became a licensed funeral director in 1999 and worked in the Fox Valley area for six years before coming back to Waupaca.  I am also a certified life insurance intermediary. 

Community service is one of my priorities. I am past-president of the Waupaca Lioness Club that I have been a member of since 2007.  I have served as treasurer of my church council since 2008.  I enjoy playing the violin with the Waupaca Area Orchestra, Waupaca Community Civic Orchestra and a church group. When time allows, I create many crocheted items.

My husband Kasey is a full-time paramedic in the ER at Appleton Medical Center; he has a daughter, Aida, and together we have two sons, Brennin and Kallin.
