Dana Jones Wynn of Jones-Wynn Funeral Homes & Crematory in Villa Rica & Douglasville, GA, was one of three leading funeral directors who served as a mentor for the National Funeral Directors Association’s (NFDA) Meet the Mentors program. Meet the Mentors is supported by the Funeral Service Foundation.
Meet the Mentors, which took place March 17 and 18 at the Emory Conference Center Hotel in Atlanta, Ga., brought young funeral professionals together to learn from three of the country’s leading funeral directors and network with like-minded peers. During the program, each mentor gave a presentation in which they shared lessons they have learned about how to build a successful and fulfilling career in funeral service. After the presentations, there was a panel discussion followed by small group discussions led by each mentor.
Dana Jones Wynn spoke to a group of the up and coming funeral directors about community involvement. Dana and the entire Jones-Wynn Family are not only a part of the community, but they play an active role in it as well. She started by asking the group, “Without community involvement, how will people know to trust us in funeral service?” Our funeral home was started in 1950 by giving back to the community, and today we still believe in taking an active roll in giving back to our community.
Dana Jones Wynn is a licensed funeral director and a second generation funeral director. Dana was born grew up living in her family funeral home. She didn’t know that living in a funeral home wasn’t what others did. She continues today as the President of Jones-Wynn Funeral Homes & Crematory and Meadowbrook Memory Gardens, and she works with the entire Jones-Wynn Family and continues to build upon the strong foundation on which her family funeral home was founded. Caring for the families of the community is a tradition in which her family has always believed. It is that tradition that has continued to drive the funeral home family while they are serving families with understanding, compassion, and respect for over half a century. Funeral and Cremation service is not just what they do…it is who they are! “A Family Serving Families®.. .since 1950”
“It was a true honor to be selected as 1 of 3 Mentors to speak to 40 top funeral professionals that are under 40” said Dana Jones Wynn. One of the young professionals said, “I got back from Atlanta where I attended NFDA’s Meet the Mentor, which was one of the most informational and educational things I’ve ever been to.” This group was composed of funeral professionals who traveled from as far away as Hawaii.
