It is with great pride and tremendous gratitude that we at the Piasecki Funeral Home would like to announce Matthew J. Martin as a new partner, effective June 2020.
“To be in the funeral service requires a rare blend of empathy, grace under pressure, and collaborative spirit,” said Nancy Piasecki, President of Piasecki Funeral Home. “Not everyone has the experience or disposition to assemble these qualities, but we are extremely fortunate to have found them exemplified in Matt Martin. Having worked as a firefighter paramedic for over two decades, Matt understands how critically important it is for members of a team to mutually support one another. He has a bright, compassionate vision for the future of the funeral home, and we are honored to have him share it with us.”
Matt was born and raised in Racine and has been a resident of Southeastern Wisconsin since graduating from Lake Superior State University in 1996. Prior to joining our team, Matt proudly served the Kenosha Fire Department as a firefighter and paramedic. His tenacity and leadership in these roles ultimately saw him promoted to fire lieutenant during his tenure with the department, a testament to the dedication that he carries into his every endeavor.
Although Matt is a new partner, he is not new to the funeral home. Several years ago, Matt worked part time for Piasecki Funeral Home. No stranger to community involvement, Matt has given countless hours to Southeastern Wisconsin communities through youth safety programs, fundraisers and other events. Matt is also a seasoned bagpiper, playing with the Kenosha Area Pipes and Drums Association (KAPDA), honoring those in public safety who have been lost in the line of duty to their communities. Both he and his daughter, Gabby, are deeply involved in the special needs community, and also serve as advocates for the Racine County Opportunity Center and Kenosha Achievement Center. They have done all this work whilst also being established and active members of two churches: Mt. Pleasant Lutheran Church in Racine and Journey Church in Kenosha.
Recognizing his 23 years of dedicated service to the citizens of Kenosha, we congratulate Matt for his distinguished history benefactor, mentor, and pillar of the community. We are excited to welcome his leadership to our team, and look forward to the creative, compassionate contributions he will make to the families we serve.
