Jane Asher has always been a natural connector who has enjoyed a successful career in media and the music industry, most notable at major radio stations in San Diego and Santa Barbara, and Virgin Records based out of Chicago.
Several years ago, she stepped away from terrestrial radio when Empower Radio reached out and asked her to create a show regarding her passion. The Next Room podcast was born. Demystifying death daily, she interviews professionals and practitioners from diverse backgrounds around death, dying, grief, beliefs and cultural traditions surrounding the journey we all must ultimately make. The show airs across 11 platforms and has connected her with extraordinary people throughout this community. The Next Room has recently been named the official podcast of the Beautiful Dying Expo.
Jane is also drawn to mission work. She has been part of a team for five years that has built homes in Tijuana for families in need through Lutheran Border Concerns. She has traveled to El Salvador to feed the homeless, Malaysia to help build a school on Borneo, and Armenia to work with women and children in the village of Amre Taza. Most recently, she was on a humanitarian mission in the Dominican Republic.
Her forthcoming book, The Next Room is a story transcending space and time, of a relationship between mother and daughter that grew stronger through death. Written together, by initially enlisting interpretation through a psychic medium, The Next Room takes us on a daughter's journey through learning eternal life lessons on forgiveness, grief, grace, gratitude, and the limitless love of all, God.
Jane lives in San Diego with her husband, Tom. She is now answering her passion-filled purpose and writing daily alongside her puppy and muse, Mamba.
