The Zuasola Funeral Home, headed by Francis Zuasola helped us a lot in my mother’s cremation and final destination. They did it with ease, compassion, and excellent preparation and processing of papers. They sympathize with the bereaved family and show concern about the descendant. I am very grateful I knew them from a friend. They are the best. From the bottom of my heart I thank you for a job very well done.

The death of Atty. John Laylo was devastating for the entire family. It was a moment of weakness and tragedy.

Francis, Chezka, and their team at Zuasola Funeral Home are a godsend to our family. They were able to do the unimaginable given the current state of my cousin. They made sure that my cousin will be treated with respect and dignity as a human and a fellow kababayan. They made sure that we are taken care of before, during, and after the repatriation of the body to Manila.

If you want a team that would treat your family like a family, do not hesitate to go with Zuasola Funeral Homes.

Maraming Salamat Francis, Chezka and team!

Zuasola Funeral Homes provided an excellent and amazing services during a very difficult time in our lives. Initial rendition of their services was in June 2021 when my sister passed and one extended family on different occasion. Services of both were exemplified with superb services. This time is the passing of my niece Jerlyn. This is an exemplary complex situation. Francis and Jovi extended to us an extra courtesy by home service, both of them came to my house for signing and documentations. To complicate matter, Jerlyn had also lost her Phillippines Passport needed in transporting her remains to Manila and to her final destination in Legaspi City via airlines. Francis also helped with passport procurement at the Manila Embassy in New York City. For us this is an extra act of compassion and a sense of humanity.

Zuasola Funeral homes treats each of their customer/client not just a number but as their own family. I salute Zuasola Funeral Homes for their generosity, empathy, intuitiveness and most of all for their compassion to each of every family they served. Their work of ethics is unsurpassable. I highly recommend Zuasola Funeral Homes to anyone who may need their services. On behalf of my family, I am extending to ZuasolaFuneral Homes my eternal gratitude. "Nobody will ever surpass a unique servitude such as this".

Excellent service!!!Many thanks again to Francis, Cheska, Chescko and Chester for the excellent service you rendered to our family at a most difficult time. First was with my wife (Milagros Zipagan) eventhough I live in Woodside, Queens, New York they provided an alternate location that caters to our need.
Second was with my cousin (Nieves Copia), live in Clifton, New Jersey passed away unexpectedly. They processed the release of the body at the Medical Examiner, filed the Consular Mortuary Certificate, and Report of Death at the Philippine Consulate General New York and all necessary documents to be able to send the cremated remain of my cousin to the Philippines.Your caring and compassion are greatly appreciated by all. Sincerely! “Thank You”

Just wanted to thank the Zuasola family, for doing such a great job of handling the funeral arrangements of our beloved mother. Things went very smoothly which brings much needed comfort to our family. We didn’t have to do anything at the viewing, Cheska, Chesko and Chester did it all with respect, dignity and truly a job well done. Its hard enough for a family to lose loved one, but with your help, its one less thing for the family to worry about. Francis is very easy to talk to and is very knowledgeable of the things that needed to be done. We are truly grateful. Maraming salamat sa inyo.
May you continue to bring comfort and much needed assistance to grieving families.

The heartbreak of losing our loved one was compounded by the fact that she didn't pass away at home--hundreds of miles away in Virginia. This added to the pain, confusion, stress and anxiety. But Francis Zuasola and his daughter Cheska were there even until very late at night to guide us through the difficult process of arranging cremation. They clarified and simplified for us the forms and paperwork when it was a struggle to think with the death of our loved one having happened hours before, the wound still fresh; Cheska helped us with the filing of the death certificate and writing of the obituary (and picture). Finally, Francis and Chescko finalized the cremation and we were reunited with Mama a few days later. It is with deep gratitude that we recommend the Zualosa Funeral Home to the community.

Unfortunately, we have used Zuasola's Funeral Homes services twice in a three year period and in both instances they never fail us (Francis and Cheska Zuasola). They been very helpful, warm, compassionate and accommodating in dealing with the family's needs specially in this trying times. The service is Excellent and Professional, the funeral parlor or facility is clean and doesn't feel depressing. We will not hesitate to recommend Zuasola 's Funeral Home to anyone. But hopefully, we'll not need their services anytime soon.

My uncle lived alone in New Jersey for almost 25 years. He never went home. I just remembered that I was 5 years old when he left. His death brings so much tears to us. We weep on his loss because this was unexpected. I don’t know what steps to do because we are all here in the Philippines and no one will facilitate to arrange the remains of my uncle until one person referred me to Zuasola Funeral Homes of NJ. A special thanks to Sir Francis Zuasola, to his family and to all the staff of Zuasola Funeral Homes. They took care of my uncle in a very beautiful way. My family wants his remains be brought back here as whole, and here he is. Finally, my uncle is here with us. Finally, after 25 years. Thank you for the love, kindness and support Zuasola Funeral Homes. I highly commend and recommend their service to all the nationalities to trust this funeral home. Again, in behalf of my uncle’s siblings and the whole family, we are forever grateful. God bless you all!

Zuasola Funeral Homes of NJ is the best funeral home to work with when a loved one expectedly or unexpectedly passes. When my grandfather passed away, they were unbelievably understanding and sensitive to all our issues, concerns, and requests. They are incredibly flexible and work very fast and efficiently. We originally wanted to bury our grandfather, however after hearing about how much more expensive it is to have a burial in the states as well as the inflexibility of the time, it was just more cost efficient and practical to send our grandfather to the Philippines. Our grandfather originally wanted to be sent there, but we thought it would be too expensive. They gave us a price and even if the cost came out to more than that, they were willing to eat that cost. They have made our entire experience one that we will never forget. I can’t believe how amazing they are and honestly I was expecting to have a miserable time because of my past experiences with other funeral homes. I will 100% recommend them to anyone that needs a funeral home service. A small family owned and family run business is the best way to go!!

My uncle passed away unexpectedly and the family wanted his remains to be brought back home to the Philippines. I had no idea what to do and how to do it. Luckily, a family friend referred me to the Zuasola Funeral Homes. They were sensitive and understanding to my needs and concerns. They managed to make all the arrangements on a very short notice from the receiving of the remains to the viewing, cremation and sending of the ashes. Their service is exemplary with an element of personal touch by including a tapestry and laminated photo cards with a heartfelt message. Thank you ao much.

Francis and the rest of the Zuasola family was really supportive and understanding of what I was going through with the death of my late husband Dominick D’Eredita. I was really confused and did not know what to do but they were all patient and guided me through the whole process. They did all the work and they made me and my late husband important. The wake/viewing was really solemn and very private because we had the entire place all to ourselves. The place is really clean, beautifully decorated and organized. Our family and friends even complimented the place and how you handled everything. To Francis, Cheska and the rest of the Zuasola Funeral Homes I can’t thank you enough for all your help and support. You made me feel like I was a part of the family. Thank you, appreciate all your help and I will surely recommend and tell the rest of my friends about you. You are the best.

Because of Covid, no one was willing to take that risk, but with your help it was possible! Thank you so much Francis for your help, patience and guidance!

My father Rodrigo Vinluan passed away last February 26, 2021. It is a difficult time for our family not only because of his untimely passing, but also being far halfway across the globe (we are based in the Philippines), taking care of things for him is very challenging, given the pandemic and all. Zuasola's Mr. Francis and Cheska were very accomodating to our requests and handled the funeral arrangements with ease. Highly recommended! Thank you and God bless Zuasola!

I have been to so many funeral homes in New York and surrounding states and I have not seen any differences between any of them except for Zuasola Funeral Homes. The place was very clean and beautifully decorated. It was bright inside like it was my own home. Service for my sister-in-law was perfectly delivered and organized in a timely way. I was touched by their presentation of names of wreath donors and their gift of a beautiful tapestry (canvas-like painting) with the picture of the deceased. Everything was on time such as arriving to the Church for Mass and to the cemetery. We were impressed by the attention to details by Francis and his team. Kudos to the management of Zuasola Funeral Home. We thank God we picked the perfect funeral home to honor our loving deceased and we thank Francis and Zuasola Funeral Home for working with us to create a meaningful and healing experience for our family.

Francis and his team managed the arrangements for my friend flawlessly from Beginning to end. We didn't have to worry about a lot of things because Zuasola did everything from fetching his remains from the coroner's office, to all the paperwork (death certificate, coordination with the Philippine Consulate, insureance claims), the memorial service, coordinating with the funeral service company in Manila and most especially, repatriating the remains back to the Philippines. Trust me, this worry-free experience is exactly what you need during this difficult time.
