Thacker Caskets, Inc. had a very “grassroots” start in the heart of Washington, D.C. in 1939. The company built its foundation by providing an honest product at an honest price all the while valuing excellent customer service ideals.
This foundation has led the company from being a small regional jobber located in the metropolitan DC area to becoming the largest family owned and operated casket company in the United States! Presently, Thacker Caskets sells caskets in 41 states and has 13 distribution centers located in the east, south, and mid-west.
In addition, three generations of the Thacker family work in the business every day, exemplifying the family’s commitment to the funeral service industry. Member of the first generation, Audrey Thacker, serves as Chief Financial Officer of the company overseeing accounting operations for the companies. Second generation member, CJ Thacker, serves as Chief Executive Officer and provides the strategic vision and direction for both the distribution and manufacturing divisions of the company. Third generation member Danielle Thacker primarily works wiith the distribution side of the company whereby she serves as Director of IT, Sales & Marketing and her brother, Justin Thacker primarily works with the manufacturing side of the company, serving as Director of Manufacturing Operations.
With each generation of the Thacker family dutifully serving the company in their own respect, our customers can rest assured that we are hard at work bringing funeral directors and their client families solutions that are right for today's business environment!
