About Jean

Leaf Trio_400

I enjoy working as a Life-Cycle Celebrant with couples and families to create meaningful ceremonies. My goal is for every wedding to reflect something personal and distinctive about the couple, and every funeral and memorial will honor the life and legacy of the person being remembered.

The Story_crop

In my professional life, I have been a mediator, facilitator and trainer in mediation, negotiation and conflict resolution. As an adjunct instructor at Regis University for 9 years, I enjoyed teaching these courses. My experience has aided me in working with my clients, as well as creating and officiating ceremonies. Presently, I co-facilitate a Death Café in the Denver Metro area.

 

Jean Stracy

Located in metro Denver, I primarily serve the Front Range and I’m willing to travel to interesting locations to perform ceremonies. I enjoy living in Colorado, where I grew up taking advantage of all the outdoor activities available: skiing, tennis and hiking. In June 2019, I completed hiking the 80 miles of the Great Glen Way in Scotland.

I met my husband at my family reunion (no, we are not related but attended the same high school at the same time… a great love story). 

I value the power of listening and the connection in storytelling. I believe everyone has the right and privilege to have their life/love story told faithfully and lovingly. I am dedicated to helping others navigate the experience of ceremony safely and thoughtfully, creating and performing unique and memorable ceremonies.

Testimonials

“You were absolutely wonderful! Everyone complimented us on how great you were and how you made the ceremony into our love story, even on how your outfit matched our wedding theme. You made the ceremony even more memorable than I would have ever imagined. We can’t thank you enough for helping us create these cherished moments and turn them into lifelong memories!” ~ Chelsea

“There aren’t enough words to describe how amazing Jean was. She is so warm and caring, and she delivers! All of our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was, touching with a bit of fun. Not many a dry eye in the house. Jean’s ability to craft a ceremony so personal and on the nose is remarkable, especially from only communicating through emails. SIMPLY AMAZING! Everything was beautiful and more than we could have hoped or expected!” ~ Shayne

“That was the most beautiful wedding ceremony I have ever seen.” ~ Passer-by complimenting the Officiant (Cheesman Park, July 2017)

“Jean captured the essence of us as a couple from the questionnaire and emails and all of our guests couldn’t believe that the wedding was the first time we had met, it was like she had known us for years.” ~ K.C.

“Jean was a wonderful presence during the ceremony and was very pleasant to have there. We got so many compliments on the ceremony. We would definitely recommend her!” ~ Megan (2017)
