Our Story

John E. and Kathryn B. Gleason founded the Gleason Funeral Home in 1929 in the City of New Brunswick. Together, John and Kathryn Gleason built a strong foundation that today's generation continues to use as a standard of excellence.

In 1968, John K. Gleason was licensed as a funeral director, and started the second generation of funeral directors at Gleason Funeral Home.

His wife, Barbara A. Gleason was licensed shortly thereafter, and joined the Gleason Funeral Home.

In 1971, in response to the changing needs of contemporary funeral service, John and Barbara, with the guidance of Kathryn, moved to their present location at 1360 Hamilton Street Somerset, New Jersey.

At this time John K. Gleason was named manager.

In 1995, Meghan A. Gleason joined the Gleason Funeral Home. William K. Gleason joined the funeral home staff  in 2000 and was licensed a year later in 2001. He now holds the position of Manager of the Gleason Funeral Home.

It is with pride, through three generations, that our tradition continues to offer compassionate care in a contemporary manner.
