Jim Kurt

Family Service Advisor

BACKGROUND

A native Angelino, Jim grew up in the Westchester and Playa del Rey area before calling Long Beach home over the last 30 years. He attended St. Bernard’s High School where he began developing his passion through curricular and co-curricular experiences. He later went on to complete both his BSBA and MBA degrees at the University of Southern California.

Jim’s professional career started as a digital marketing consultant. His primary clientele were small businesses in need of growing exposure within their marketplace. His ability to apply analytics to marketing needs provided rewarding results for the many entrepreneurs he served. Jim soon recognized obtaining his Life Insurance License would be an additional value to business owners to properly protect their investments and their families. Jim moved to the Food and Manufacturing distribution industry working within the Pet Products division of StarKist and Heinz. He later worked for ConAgra distributing to supermarkets and restaurants.

THE GREEN HILLS COMMUNITY Jim was introduced to Green Hills when his father passed away. He immediately was captivated by the sweeping views and the impeccable attention to detail in every aspect of the park. He was saturated in the Palos Verdes Peninsula community at his former place of work and knew he wanted to continue serving the people here on a more personal level. As soon as Jim met with the management team at Green Hills, he knew this would be the next place he would call his professional home where he now truly believes he is making a difference in his work.

Although Jim is the newest team member at Green Hills, he has been greatly impacted by seeing the involvement that the team has in the community. He was especially in awe of the generosity expressed to the families who attended the annual Harvest Festival and the true appreciation they had for Green Hills.

Jim makes it his mission to help families memorialize their loved ones in a way that brings dignity, respect, and the best life celebration possible during such an emotional time.

OFF THE CLOCK
When Jim’s not at work, you will find him traveling to a new place rich in historical significance and beauty. He hopes to travel to Iceland and see The Northern Lights in the near future.

Jim also enjoys spending time with his two sons and honing in on his ability to help others gain clarity around their goals and have a set plan for the future.
