COVID-19 Information

At Jacob Schoen & Son, our top priority is the safety and well-being of our staff, guests and the families we are privileged to serve. We want to assure you that we always take proactive measures to help prevent the spread of any potential illness. 

We are monitoring the situation closely and are following all local, state and national guidelines. We want to reassure you that we’ll continue to maintain our high health and service standards. The City of New Orleans recently issued the following guidance to funeral service:

- funerals are exempt but limited to immediate family members only up to 10 people

We recommend you follow the guidance of the CDC for helping prevent the spread of the Coronavirus in general and suggest expressing your condolences to family, friends and loved ones without personal contact.

We are following the CDC guidelines as well. We have asked any staff members running a fever or having flu-like symptoms to stay home. We ask that anyone considering attending do the same. For those who are unable to attend we are able to live-stream and record the service from our chapel which we are offering to families at no charge at this time.

Our History

In 1859, there arrived in New Orleans from the Rhineland village of Rommersheim two ambitious young German immigrants named Frantz and Schoen. The former became a blacksmith and wheelwright while the latter established a carriage and livery business.

On March 4, 1874, Jacob Schoen and Henry Frantz started a family business at 155 N. Peters Street and adopted as their policy the ideal, “The highest standard of funeral service to all, regardless of financial circumstance.”
