James Klemmer

Owner, COO and Funeral Director

I was raised on Milwaukee’s south side. I graduated from St. Gregory the Great grade school in 1999, where I am currently a parish member. After graduating from Pius XI High School in 2003, I attended Marquette University, Carroll College, and graduated from the Funeral Service program at MATC in 2008. I became a fourth generation funeral director, following in the steps of my great grandfather, Wilfred Tebo, both my grandfathers, John B. Klemmer and John Scheuerell, and my father, John T. Klemmer, and uncle James Scheuerell.

I enjoy being involved with my community. I currently serve as a board member for the Wisconsin Funeral Directors Association and am a past president of the Milwaukee/Waukesha Co. Funeral Directors Association. In my free time I enjoy taking my dog Abbott to the dog park, hiking, cooking, reading, and watching soccer.
