Mr. Thulin has been with JCG since March, 2017, and in that time has quickly gained the respect of his colleagues and clients.  President and CEO Jake Johnson states that “Nelson’s rich background of multi-location management expertise and ability to connect with all levels of the organization will serve him well in his new role as JCG continues to grow.”

Thulin brings over thirty years of experience to the position. He got his start in the funeral industry working for a small family-owned business, then transitioned to independent ownership and corporate leadership positions managing both large and small markets.
