Why I Wear Orange: Ted Hoffman

MiSsion Possible Team Member and Director of Operations, Ted Hoffman

For Ted Hoffman, wearing orange became personal when he started working at Crown Hill Funeral Home and Cemetery.  Everyone thinks something like MS will always happen to someone else’s family not theirs. Here at CH, we have an employee impacted by MS, so it makes it a reality when it happens to “one of your family members”.

Ted supports Crown Hill’s initiatives with The National MS Society, Indiana State Chapter because he believes making a difference in someone’s life is a responsibility.  The quest for answers and participation is part of the journey and goal in curing MS.  Crown Hill Funeral Home and Cemetery has been involved with community events, such as the annual Beyond the Badge Run/Walk. “This endeavor to support a cure for MS adds a philanthropic involvement for myself and  the staff. Being from a large family, I realized early in life it takes all to get a job done.”

Ted Hoffman is the Director of Operations at Crown Hill Funeral Home and Cemetery.
