Jesper has been working on Aarhus West Cemetery for nine years. Before, he worked as a sailor, make up artist and bartender. The job as a grave digger and organizer is a job he wants to keep working in the years to come. "Death will come to us all, so why be scared of it?"
“I like to be outside and in what job can you actually have that?” Jesper says. Over the years he learned to cope with the fact that death is all around him during his working hours. “You need to read people”, Jesper describes the process of approaching people who just lost a dear one. His experience as a bartender helps him out in that case.
