OWNER/PRESIDENT, FUNERAL DIRECTOR IN CHARGE

THOMAS J. “TJ” COHEN

Thomas J. “TJ” Cohen is a Florida native born in Gainesville and raised in Tampa. A graduate of Chamberlain High School and St. Petersburg College of Mortuary Science., TJ currently lives in South Tampa.

TJ has a natural instinct for caring for others, which is how he became interested in a career in FUNERAL SERVICES. As early as high school, TJ started working as an attendant for a local funeral home.  He observed the importance of the sensitive interaction between the funeral director and the families at such a difficult time.  He believes that being there for those who are suffering a loss and are at their most vulnerable is one of the highest forms of caring. His life mission is to serve his community, whether volunteering at a nursing home, coaching a local youth soccer team, or tutoring students with learning disabilities.

During a semester of college, TJ participated in and successfully completed Outward Bound, a survival course that encouraged group dynamics such as listening to, cooperating with, and being sensitive to others, as well as stressing a strong work ethic and independent thinking.  He saw these as invaluable attributes to bring to any career but crucial to a director’s skillset.

TJ was licensed as a funeral director by the State of Florida in 2007. Over the years, he has professionally served as a funeral director in charge of funeral homes in the Tampa Bay area. He combines this valuable experience with compassion and personalized service to promote peace of mind for those dealing with the death of a family member or friend.

As your Funeral director, TJ is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to promptly answer any questions you may have.  His hope is to make this difficult time as easy as possible for families.

What People Say

T.J., I just want to tell you that the services you provided to my family and me could not have been more honest and soothing. You were true to your word about everything and never rushed me or influenced me to do any more than what I needed. It was honestly the easiest part of the decisions I had to make on an unexpected death in a foreign city while I only had a few days in Tampa. I hope there is some way you can relay this on your website as I thank you deeply for your professionalism and commitment.

The loss if a loved one us never easy. It is even harder to pick up the pieces and complete the tough situations. TJ was calm, collected and professional, when I was none of these due to grief. The cost was affordable compared to thousands of dollars at a funeral home.

Florida law states “A cremation may not be performed until a legally authorized person gives written authorization for such cremation,” (FS 497.607).  Furthermore, the law defines whom the “legally authorized person” is and sets up the order of priority of next of kin. We require a written authorization before scheduling any cremation or funeral services.
