*C’mon bruh. Tell us it ain’t so. Lets file this under, what the hell was he thinking!? A funeral director licensed in the state of Texas has been caught taking selfies in front of the hearses and caskets of the newly departed.
David L. Jones must be one egotistical so-and-so. Add to that, insensitive. Is there any doubt, looking at the photos above, that he is posing in front of property holding or designed to hold deceased people?
Yet when Rose Molina, who had just buried her 32-year-old cousin, caught him in the act, he told her he was “fixing his tie.” She had a feeling he was lying and went to his Facebook page where she discovered selfies of Jones standing in front of hearses and caskets.
And no one ever thought to report this dude?
The day Molina caught Jones in action had been an especially difficult one.
“That day was especially hard for us because Saturday was the one-year anniversary of the loss of my grandmother, and they were buried next to each other,” she said.
“You could see that he had it kind of angled, you know, you have it positioned in a certain way to catch the background,” said Molina about the position of the camera and his pose.
If this fool thought he was advertising his business, he just lost a LOT of potential customers!
As it turns out, Jones is a contractor; and according to the owner of Leal’s Funeral Home, a man named Joaquin Leal, Jones was working at the Jacinto City location on the day of the alleged incident.
Although Leal called Jones’ behavior unacceptable, and did contact the family to apologize, he did not want to speak about it on camera; and told the media Jones refused an interview request.
When ABC13 tried to contact Jones themselves, they say he wouldn’t pick up the phone.
Molina plans to file a complaint against jones with the state of Texas. According to the state, Jones has had no complaints in the past.
Additionally, the Texas Funeral Services Commission, who acts as overseer for funeral directors, says Jones’ actions could be a violation of conduct, punishable by anything from a warning to a fine of up to $5,000.
