Our Staff’s Dedication to Respectful Care

A funeral, or memorial service, should provide family members and loved ones with the chance to reflect, remember, and celebrate a life well-lived.

Sean Gillian
Licensed Funeral Director & Embalmer

Sean is a fully licensed mortician. He holds licenses for funeral directing, embalming and cremations in the states of Arizona and California. He is a graduate of the Mortuary Science Program at Cypress College in Orange County, CA. Being well rounded in the above mentioned funeral services, Sean has found that working directly with families while providing guidance and counseling is where he feels most comfortable and rewarded.

Sean considers himself both a native of Southern California and Tucson, Arizona. His childhood, from the age of three to twelve, was experienced under the warm California sun, while his teen years into adulthood were embraced within the beautiful desert landscapes of Tucson.

Aside from his career loves, Sean is a self-proclaimed film fanatic and critic; an avid reader of classic literature and horror fiction; and as well as being a walking encyclopedia of pop culture trivia. He has an unabashed devotion towards punk rock, heavy metal and electronic music with the latter being accompanied by an ongoing hobby of being a DJ.

Away from work, Sean shares his love of life with his beautiful wife Gaby (also a practicing mortician) and their three crazy cats Lola, Buddy and Lil’ Ash, all of whom make each day shine ever so brightly.

Jazmine has only recently begun her journey in the funeral industry as Desert Sunset's newest funeral arranger, but her passion and desire to help others speaks volumes about her character.
