2024 marks the 41st year of the prestigious Memorial Classic golf tournament, held in Las Vegas.

This year’s event was particularly special as it honored the legacy of its founder, Tom Johnson, who passed away in December 2023. In tribute, the event has been renamed The Tom Johnson Memorial Classic.

The tournament attracted a full field of golfers from all across the profession. Over the three-day period, the event raised over $150,000 for educational initiatives within the funeral service profession. This year’s contributions set a new record, making it the most successful event in its history. Cumulatively, the tournament has raised over $1,250,000 for the funeral service profession.

Jake Johnson expressed his gratitude, stating, “I am overwhelmed by the generosity shown this year. My father would be incredibly proud of the contributions made in his honor.”

Funds raised from the Memorial Classic are donated to the ICCFA Educational Foundation and the Funeral Service Foundation. A tribute video is always presented during the event honoring prior attendees in the funeral service profession who have passed away. This year’s video paid special homage to Tom Johnson’s life and contributions to funeral service. View the tribute video.
