Brian M. Schlosser & Jennifer M. Schlosser

Licensed Funeral Directors & Embalmers

Welcome! My name is Brian Schlosser, and my wife, Jenn and I are the proud owners and operators of Schlosser Funeral Home & Cremation Services.

I was raised just outside Wapakoneta, where I grew up with my parents and twin sister. She and I graduated from Wapakoneta Senior High in 1997. Following high school I attended Wright State University-Lake Campus in Celina completing the necessary requirements to attend mortuary school. I then transferred to Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science in spring of 2000. While attending college there, I lived in Newport, Kentucky and worked for Muehlenkamp-Erschell Funeral Homes.

After receiving my Bachelor of Mortuary Science degree in the summer of 2001, I started my career as a licensed funeral director and embalmer back home in Wapakoneta. In September of 2001, I joined the St. Johns Volunteer Fire & Rescue Department where I currently serve as Assistant Fire Chief volunteering my time as a Level-1 Firefighter and E.M.T.

For six years, I worked at the Auglaize County Sheriff's Office as an Emergency Dispatcher, where I was honored as Dispatcher of the Year for 2008. In November of 2015 I was elected as the Fiscal Officer of Pusheta Township.
