Funeral Director & Service Manager
Jessica joined our Neptune Family in 2012. She is a licensed funeral director with 22 years of funeral service experience. At a young age, she was a caregiver from bandaging baby dolls to taking in and raising abandoned animals. In 1996, she started college majoring in nursing; however, her interest changed as she began work with a rural funeral home. She found her strengths assisting families in their darkest hours. She graduated with a degree in Funeral Science which at the time made her one of the youngest to complete the funeral service program. At the age of 19, she received her Florida Funeral Directors License and continued her education obtaining a Florida Variable Life and Annuity license, Georgia Funeral Directors License, and Cremation Association of North America (CANA) certification. She was an active member of Florida Emergency Mortuary Operations Response System (FEMORS) but placed her membership on inactive status to raise her young children. Jessica served 18 years in the traditional funeral industry before joining our family. She was raised on a small farm surrounded by family; hard work and dedication was instilled in her at a very young age. Her abilities to strive for excellence has helped her remain a true professional and a selfless leader. Jessica has two children, Landrum and Amylie Watts and currently plays on a church co-ed softball team. She believes in having an attitude that is infectious, a reputation that is above reproach which she demonstrates daily by example not only to her children and family but to everyone around her.
Tierra Green is 29 years old and has been working with Neptune Society for a year. She is the Office Coordinator here at Neptune Society and brings a great deal of experience. She received her Associates from Howard University in Washington, D.C and later matriculated to Edward Waters College in Jacksonville, Florida where she obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Organizational Management. Prior to becoming part of our family, she worked in the insurance sector working closely with pharmaceutical and medical companies. She will be enrolling in the Florida State College of Jacksonville Mortuary Science Program to become a Licensed Funeral Director and later pursuing her Masters degree in Business Administration at University of North Florida in Jacksonville, Florida. She is a devoted active member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority and enjoys participating in community activities and making a difference in today’s society. In Tierra’s spare time, she enjoys spending time with her daughter, Suri, reading, traveling, and shopping.
Russell Lavender joined our Neptune Family in 2018 and has been in the funeral industry for over eight years. A 2015 graduate of Gupton-Jones College of Funeral Service located in Atlanta, Georgia (Decatur). He received his Associate of Science degree in Funeral Service and also was accepted into the Epsilon Nu Delta Mortuary Fraternity. After passing the National Board Examination and completing his internship he successfully passed the State Board Exam in Florida, becoming one of the youngest Licensed Funeral Directors and Embalmers in the state. Russell continued his education by obtaining a B.S. Degree in Business Administration, a Florida Variable Life and Annuity License, and Crematory Operator & Cremation Arranger (ICCFA) certifications. Russell has a heart for service, not only to the families he serve, but also for the whole community.
Service Admin Assistant
Kara Tubbs joined the Neptune Society in October of 2017, very shortly after losing her mother. She is a great addition to our team and she firmly feels if it wouldn’t have been for our “family oriented” team, she would not have been able to get through it all. She has always enjoyed helping other people and putting others first, as it gives a great feeling inside just to see a smile on someone’s face. She is a huge animal lover, mostly of dogs and has always enjoyed taking in the rescued and unwanted. She is a culinary school graduate from Virginia College, where she obtained her chef’s license/diploma, but still felt something was missing, she didn’t feel like she was able to help people to the best of her ability, which led her to join our Neptune team. She was raised by her father the majority of her life, who instilled in her many great qualities. She grew up fairly quick, which helped develop strong independence. She has always pushed herself to the best of her ability to get to where she needed to be, and still continues to do so.
