About Empathy

Empathy is on a mission to help families with everything they face after the loss of a loved one. Powered by tech and driven by purpose, we provide peace of mind by guiding families through all the tedious and time-consuming tasks that follow a loss. We partner with employers and life insurance companies, offering their employees and/or clients meaningful support when they need it most. We work steadfastly to update and innovate our offerings to make sure families are always receiving the highest level of support. It’s unique and rewarding work that offers many interesting challenges along the way.

Our flagship product is a digital loss companion that accompanies families through every aspect of a loved one’s death, from funeral planning and estate settling to dealing with grief, mortality, and family. Partnering with families to bring empathy and transparency to every aspect of this difficult time in their lives, we’re on a mission to change the way the world copes with loss.
