About Us

The Sessa Family established their business in 1883 on President Street and in the early 1900's, moved their main office to Bay Ridge. In 1985 Joseph V. "Jay" Sessa II merged with The McLaughlin and Sons, Inc. Funeral Homes and solidified the continuation of a family tradition which has cared and brought dignity to the funeral industry for over 100 years
In 2015, Antonio Cefalo, a life long Bay Ridge resident and funeral director with McLaughlin and Sons since 1995, entered into partnership with Jay. Together, they will continue serving the Bay Ridge and the surrounding communities with the same dedication for generations to come.
Our responsibility is to help guide you through the many decisions of the funeral arrangement process Our staff is committed to providing your family with the highest quality care and service in your time of need. A member of our professional staff answers the phones 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Our Chapels are newly renovated, handicap accessible and we provide valet parking services in addition to an attended parking lot during evening and weekend hours.


Courtney Sessa (Jay's daughter) was invited to have breakfast with Mayor Bloomberg as a thank you for her community service in Bay Ridge.
