History

Inspired by the disappointing funeral program of her father and the encouragement from her family, Founder Cecelia Dublin, started a business. In 2002, she registered Just For U Designer Programs with the state and received a business license.

Perhaps, being new to the industry and faced with fear, Cecelia says, “no marketing was done.” It was not until November 2011 that actual operations began. A funeral home familiar with her computer skills asked her to publish their programs. Later, another funeral home owner offered his program business.

Cecelia shares, “My dad’s funeral program was produced from a typewriter in 1992. It was not an attractive program that told a story about his life in a graphical format.” Times have changed and graphic artists can help paint a more vivid picture of a person’s life.

Now incorporated as Just For U Custom Funeral Programs, Inc., clients are receiving great custom programs. Dublin joyfully proclaims, “Only God could have made this happen!”

Cecelia Dublin graduated from Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science in Cincinnati, Ohio in June 1984. After a year-long apprenticeship and passing the state board, she received her Funeral Service License in 1985. Her motto is to “Love God first, love others, and then herself.” Her confidence comes from knowing who God is and that He has plans for her.

Cecelia is married to Michael L. Dublin, Sr. since 1985.  They have a blended family of six sons and daughters. He encouraged her to use her skills to become an entrepreneur until and she made it happened. She is so grateful for his persistence, which helped to make a her dream come true.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
