  1. Shane has deep roots in Gilbert.

    While he was raised in Mesa, his parents secured a home in Gilbert in 1981 and that home is still owned by the family today. He remembers shopping at Liberty Market when it was still a grocery store and working at Gilbert Animal Hospital in downtown Gilbert as a young man long before it was Bergie’s Coffee Roast House.

  2. Shane is a family first man.

    Shane married his wife, Janelle, in 1994, and together they have six children. It is in their home that Shane believes leadership is most important, as he and his wife have helped their children thrive in a variety of capacities. Shane and Janelle lived in Gilbert from 1995 to 1998. They then left to attend law school in Salt Lake City, Utah and returned to Gilbert in 2004. They have raised all six of their children in the town.
