This Moment Is Yours!

October 17, 2018

Cress Funeral Service is proud to introduce you to a very interesting staff person, Funeral Director Apprentice, Jordan Tyjeski, also a World Class competitor!

What interesting lives and stories people have to tell.  Jordan competed at the World Championship of Kettlebell Lifting 2018 , winning three gold medals representing the United States!  The competition was at the Daugavpils Olympic Center in Daugavpils, Latvia, a country along the Baltic Sea, Daugavpils, being a city about 500 miles west of Russia.

Kettlebell sport lifting is a repetitive weight lifting sport performed with kettlebells in a given period of time.  Competitive kettlebell lifting has a long history in Russia and Eastern Europe, but developed as an organized sport under the name kettlebell lifting during the 1960’s.

We are proud to embrace our world class staff person, Jordan Tyjeski, who has embodied hard work, passion and compassion as a young person growing up in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin.  Now, as she begins to serve families in our care, Cress Funeral & Cremation Service, she hopes to support and help families in the Madison and Dane County area who are in the midst of or preparing for, a time of loss and hardship.

CONGRATULATIONS JORDAN TYJESKI on all that you have accomplished!
