Jennifer and her husband started Big Hearts of Fox Valley in 2014 out of their desire to find a way to give back to children in their community. Jennifer and her husband Minor own Excel Automotive Repair in St. Charles. Jennifer grew up in a small town in Indiana. Her and her family moved to St. Charles in 2010 after the birth of their second child. She has 2 children in school District 303. When she’s not working on Big Hearts, you will likely find her reading, playing with her children and 3 pets, or taking nature walks with her family. She is a firm believer in giving back to her community and supporting local businesses.
Minor Mobley – Founder
Minor Mobley is the owner and operator of Excel Automotive Repair which he built from the ground up in 2014. Soon after opening Excel, he and his wife Jennifer, wanted to find a way to give back to the community they had fallen in love with. That’s when they reached out to D303 to see how they could help. It all started with a phone call and helping kids at his own children’s school.
Minors favorite things to do are to work on his ’68 Mustang, helping Veterans and spending time with his family. He’s a huge supporter of his community and other local businesses.

She chose to leave her busy career in corporate retail 11 years ago to be home with her children. She is new to the St. Charles area but has lived in the Fox Valley area for 15 years. Prior to moving to St. Charles, she was very involved in the school PTO for 8 years. She was the committee chair for the largest school fundraiser each year and held a Presidential Board position for 5.
