As an end of life guide, Betsy Trapasso, assists the dying in making a peaceful transition from this world. Betsy is the hostess of Death Cafe Los Angeles where people gather to talk about death and life while enjoying the amazing food and cultures of the City.
Betsy’s passion is to change how we view death in the United States and that people may be less afraid of dying if they learn about other cultures that view death as a natural part of life. She is producing a feature length documentary about the death views, rituals, and ceremonies of other cultures and countries.

In earlier years, Jeff Jorgenson worked in the aviation industry having secured a Bachelors of Science in Aeronautics and a Master of Science in Management from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. It was a wonderful twist in life that brought him to work in the cremation and burial profession both in the pre-arrangement area as well as a licensed funeral director.
