Martha Thayer is a sought-after speaker and presenter for the National Funeral Directors Association and Mortuary Colleges around the United States. She is a Licensed Funeral Professional and the Former Program Director of the Mortuary Science Department at Arapahoe Community College in Colorado.
Ms. Thayer is a cherished and valuable friend who was tasked with serving the family of Dillon Klebold, one of America's most well-known mass murders. Susan Klebold sought Martha professional help after her son killed 12 students and a teacher and left 24 others wounded in the wake of the Columbine School Shooting. Martha is a fellow funeral professional who has lived and learned through this great tragedy. Her unique position in death care ministry presented her with the unimaginable challenge of burring a mass murdered in the midst of serving a grieving community devastated by significant and tragic loss.
