The Postage Team

About Our Platform

After-death care is time-consuming, expensive, and emotionally taxing. The Postage helps people handle their affairs with greater intention and personal control by offering a simple way to organize their end-of-life plans.

Our service empowers families to have difficult conversations, especially in terms of finances, social media, and the future – so they can live fully now and feel more prepared if and when something happens later.

Emily Cisek

Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer

After witnessing how difficult it was to wrap up the details of a loved one’s life, Emily Cisek knew there had to be a better way. However, she soon discovered there wasn’t a single digital platform that could help someone simplify how they organized their life or stay on top of ever-changing data. It was then that she decided to create The Postage, a solution for people who wanted to manage their information and effectively control the aftermath of life.

Prior to founding The Postage, Emily was the Director of Sales at Integrate Agency, a full-service digital and traditional marketing agency, specializing in technology, energy, and real estate throughout Texas. With her extensive experience in leading, developing, and launching robust marketing and communication programs, she led efforts for a number of clients across various industries to build out their digital initiatives.

Emily received her BS degree in Business Administration from Bryant University then grew her professional career in Houston at Bounce Energy and Direct Energy as a Digital Marketing Manager, before spending several years in Austin leading a branch of Integrate Agency. Emily decided to headquarter The Postage in Houston, in an environment filled with energy and potential for growth.
