Jose Lopez III
Jose Lopez III is familiar with the other side of the counter, fixing appliances in the repair service for eight years, a job he loved doing. A back injury, however, forced Jose to change careers and he is in his 16th-year at McCombs Supply, helping to make sure customers get the correct parts. His vast knowledge and background in the repair business and skills with computers makes him invaluable at McCombs. He is our unofficial "expert" on ice makers.
He says he enjoys the working environment and people, noting, "I get along with everybody." Away from work, he likes going to the beach and crabbing in Rumbley, Md., a community on the Chesapeake Bay "in the middle of nowhere." Married with three boys, this is their getaway spot. His oldest son, Jose IV, is a Marine.
