Marc A. Eernisse
President/Funeral Director
Marc was licensed in 1970 and worked at Harder Funeral Home in Milwaukee until the opportunity presented itself to purchase the Horn Funeral Home in Port Washington. In 1975 he moved his family to Port and started Horn-Eernisse Funeral Home at the old location on the corner of Milwaukee St. and Grand Ave. He purchased the Junger Funeral Home on Dacada in 1976. Marc married Evalyn Jean Glick in 1966 and together they had four children: Jennifer (Paul) Thill, Jill (William) Kissinger, Joseph (Kory) Eernisse and Jayne Eernisse. Jeannie lost her battle with cancer in November of 2001. He met and married Grace Bender La Chey in 2004 and the couple married in August of that year, bringing Grace's daughter Elizabeth to the family as well. Marc has been active with the Port Washington Fire Department since 1975, and held the position of Fire Chief for 22 years before retiring in September of 2004. He is active with many community efforts and programs, including the Port Washingotn Historical Society, the Kiwanis Club and the 4-H Foundation. He plans on spending more time with his new bride, traveling and spending time at the family cabin up north.
Jill M. Eernisse Kissinger
Funeral Director
Jill Kissinger started working at funeral homes while attending UW-Stevens Point, to decide if she wanted to take on a career in Funeral Service. Her work with funeral homes in the Milwaukee area while attending Milwaukee Area Technical College and finishing her apprenticeship brings a different outlook to this family run business. Licensed in 1997, Jill took on the manager position for the Belgium location in 1998. She married her husband Bill in 2003. Together they have three children (Amanda,Will and Jason), pets (Hudi and Guy)and a few classic cars that keep them busy when not at the Funeral Home. The Kissinger family moved from Cedar Grove to Port Washington in 2004. Jill is a longtime member of Grand Ave. United Methodist Church. She is currently serving as a Trustee at church and as the Cookie Mom for Brownie Troop 708.
Joseph M. Eernisse

Joe Eernisse started working part-time at the funeral home in 1993, while on summer break from college at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In 1994, he left UW to attend mortuary school at Worsham College of Mortuary Science in Wheeling, IL. Upon graduating in September of 1995, Joe started working with his dad on a full-time basis. Joe married his wife, Kory, in 1997. They have two children,Olivia and Cael. He is currently a member of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Port Washington, and the Port Washington Rotary Club, of which he is currently President.
