Faces of Omaha is an annual sponsored publication that introduces a variety of “faces,” local industry leaders and experts, to the community. This exclusive publication was carefully cultivated​,​ so only one person and company per business category is invited to participate.

In the publishing industry, this sort of publication is known as “native advertising.” Native advertising is a unique form of sponsored content produced by editorial staff in conjunction with advertisers. The end result is an enjoyable book that has value to both the readers and advertisers.

Everyone featured in the book is truly the “face” of their field. Our sales team spent considerable time cultivating this list.

The following pages introduce more than 100 people and companies, the leaders in their respective areas of expertise, who stand ready to serve their community.

“If you’re the last person on earth, you don’t need to prearrange,” remarks Jon Roeder. “Pre-planning is something you do for the family you leave behind.”

He emphasizes the importance of sharing information with family members before a death occurs. Equally important is choosing a mortuary that is owned and operated by compassionate people who have lots of experience helping families deal with the loss of a loved one. Jon and his son, Brian, are the third and fourth generations to operate Roeder Mortuary, which has been family-owned and operated since it was founded in 1912. Today there are three locations in the Omaha area: on 108th Street and West  Maple Road, 49th Street and Ames Avenue, and in Gretna. Roeder’s offers traditional burial as well as cremation. If people choose cremation, this decision brings additional choices such as whether to have a visitation and what to do with the ashes. Pre-planning booklets are available at all three locations and can be requested online. Roeder’s website also provides a list of steps to take if a death occurs at home.
