Our Story

Founded in 1925 by Adolph & Della Jakubs, the original Funeral Home was located at 6621 Edna Ave. in Cleveland. Following the death of Adolph in 1932, Della operated the business alone until 1951 when her son, William, joined the Funeral Home staff.

 

The second location, at 936 East 185th St. was opened in 1954 and expanded in 1964 and 1972 to meet the needs of the families it serves.

The original Jakubs Funeral Home closed its doors in 1972 around the time the second locations expansion was complete.

In 1976, the Jakubs Family welcomes third generation family member William, Jr. into the business.

In 1983 the Jakubs staff was saddened by the loss of Della. Six years later, in 1989, William, Sr.'s son-in-law, Kenneth Schmidt, joined the family business. 

 

By 1995 the location at 36000 Lake Shore Blvd in Eastlake was ready to serve, and Michael Danaher was brought in to manage the location…thus the Jakubs-Danaher name. Kenneth Schmidt retired in 2011, the Jakubs family then added Stephen Waite to the firm.  In 2013, Michael Danaher retired. Stephen then became manager of Eastlake and in 2015 became a partner.
