Although my wife and I have been residents of Campbell County most of our lives, and have many friends and family in the community, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to those of you whom I have not had the opportunity to know.
At the age of 16 (June of 2002), I began working at Martin-Wilson Funeral Home as a funeral assistant and have always had a love and passion for helping people during their most heartbreaking and difficult times. It was my father, Rev. Ronnie “Bo” Freeman, who showed me how much I could help people through the funeral profession. I have done my best to follow in the footsteps of great funeral professionals, like Claude Wilson, Paul Martin, and so on. As we started this journey in buying Martin-Wilson Funeral Home, we had one thing in mind by helping the people of Campbell County when they need us the most.
The staff of Martin-Wilson have a done a tremendous job over the years in helping families in the hardest times of someone’s life and we plan to continue doing that. I hope that the families of Campbell County will continue to allow us to take care of their loved ones and be there to help them in a time that there is pain and grief. Martin-Wilson Funeral Home will be known as the funeral home where families matter most!
My mamaw always told me growing up to treat everyone the way you would want to be treated. She said everyone is equal no matter of what background they come from. We all put our pants on the same way and to never get bigger than whom God intended us to be.
My wife is Jessica (Barnes) Freeman and is employed by Tennova Cardiology at LaFollette Medical Center. We have three children, Lauren, Bentley, and Maddox. My parents are Rev. Ronnie “Bo” and Sandy (Goins) Freeman of LaFollette. My dad is the son of the late Bill and Clydia (Sweat) Freeman of LaFollette and has been the pastor of several churches in Campbell County over the years. My mom is the daughter of Lois (McNeely) Goins & the late John Goins of LaFollette and she worked at Riggs Drug Store for many years. My wife, Jessica is the daughter of Kenny Barnes and Melissa Daugherty. The granddaughter of James and Evadean (Ward) Daugherty as well as Roger and Linda (Lay) Barnes.
I have been a licensed funeral director in the state of Tennessee since 2007 and have been part of over 2000 services. With fourteen years of experience in the funeral profession, I have conducted many services in many different types of religions and denominations.
We want the families of Campbell County to know that you don’t have to pay an outrageous price for a nice funeral. We will accommodate to the needs of our families and their financial situation. Put your trust in the Martin-Wilson Funeral Home, where your family matters most.
I will be available 24/7. If you call and want to speak to me personally, I promise you that if I am not available, I will return your phone call in a matter moments. Even stop in and we can sit down and talk.
Martin-Wilson offers life insurance to help families with today’s funeral cost. We also accept pre-arrangements from other funeral homes. All pre-arrangements are transferable to another funeral if a family wishes to change funeral homes. Martin Wilson will accept those pre-arrangements and could possibly save hundreds of dollars.
I am honored by the fact that people put their trust in me in their time of need and I pledge to be worthy of that trust. Campbell County is our home. My wife and I are both graduates of Campbell County High School. Our children go to the Campbell County schools. Our kids play in the local sport leagues of Campbell County. We support our churches, local businesses, schools, school programs, and athletics. We are here to stay and give back to our hometown. Stop in and see me any time. Martin Wilson is now locally owned and operated. The funeral home “Where Families Matter Most”.
Thank you for your trust,
Jason Freeman- Owner of Martin-Wilson Funeral Home
