Dan was born in Jersey City, NJ and raised in Hoboken, NJ. At an early age, Dan's grandfather died and it was shortly after that time that he made the decision to answer the calling of becoming a funeral director. After graduating from Hudson Catholic High School, he attended and graduated from Mercer County College with an Associates Degree in Business Administration in 1976. Dan completed his funeral service education at the American Academy McAllister Institute (AAMI) of Funeral Service in New York in 1977. He served his internship with Lawton-Turso Funeral Home in Hoboken. Dan became a New Jersey licensed funeral director in 1977. He made the major decision to return to New Jersey City University (formerly Jersey City State College) and further his education. Dan received his Bachelor's and Master's degree in Criminal Justice. He also furthered his education at Seton Hall University and has a Doctorate in Education (Ed.D.) Dan has worked at several funeral homes in the New Jersey/New York area as a funeral director. Recently he and his wife, Jacqueline, purchased the Jaqui-Kuhn Funeral Home. In March 2013, Dan received the Certified Funeral Service Practitioner (CFSP) designation from the Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice and in October 2017, he received the Certified Pre-planning Consultant (CPC) from the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA). Dan is also licensed to be a funeral director in New York, Pennsylvania and Florida.
