Service Manager

Jeanette was born in Olympia WA. She’s been a Washington resident all of her life, until recently.  Jeanette and her family decided to relocate to St George Utah in February 2021. She was ready for more sunshine! McCabe’s wasn’t ready to lose her, so we created a remote position so we could keep her on our team.  Jeanette’s a daughter, sister, wife, mother and auntie. Her family is her everything! She’s also a fur mom to 4 amazing French bulldogs, Duke, Havana, Ariel and Phoebe. In her free time, she enjoys working out, walking her dogs, karaoke, adventures in her Polaris UTV and family time. She’s been in the automotive industry for 27+ years. When asked how she found herself in the industry she said “I like to help people and nobody likes automotive expenses, so if I can make that experience better, I like to do so.” Jeanette enjoys a challenge and she felt like the automotive industry could use more women in the field. She has accepted the challenge and is growing and thriving. She started as a parts driver and quickly moved into management. Jeanette joined the McCabe’s family in February of 2019. She loved the mission that Ashley had for the future of her family’s business and wanted to be a part of that. “I love my job and I love what this team stands for. I’m excited to be part of many more years at McCabe’s!”

In Loving Memory of David, Our Beloved Automotive Technician

David, a cherished member of our team at McCabe’s Automotive, left an indelible mark in our hearts and on our work for just over a year. Tragically, his battle with melanoma has taken him from us, but his spirit and the warmth of his friendship will remain with us forever.

David was not just an exceptional technician; he was also easily everyone’s best friend. His friendly and inviting nature welcomed everyone into his life with open arms. He had a remarkable ability to make every person he met feel like an old friend, offering a warm smile and a kind word to all who crossed his path.

David’s kindness knew no bounds. He was always willing to give you the shirt off his back, and he exemplified selflessness in every aspect of his life. Whether it was lending a helping hand in the shop or being there for a friend in need, he never hesitated to assist and support those around him.

One of David’s most remarkable qualities was his unwavering positivity. No matter the challenges that came his way, he maintained a radiant, optimistic attitude that could light up even the darkest days. His infectious laughter and endless enthusiasm brought joy to the entire team, and his presence was a constant source of motivation and inspiration.
