Carole Jacobs

  • Dispatcher

IBEW Local 48 Dispatcher Carole Jacobs has been an IBEW member for the past twenty years. During that time, she has spent time as both a journeyman wireman and foreman.

Carole chose to join IBEW because of the excellent benefits the union offers and the security those benefits could provide for her family. She also loves that membership has afforded her the opportunity to travel frequently. But most of all, it is the extended family and the ability to help each other out during times of need that she values most. Her greatest accomplishments include completing the challenging apprenticeship program, 20 years of field service, and becoming Dispatcher, where she can continue to serve members.

In her free time, Carole enjoys traveling and painting.
