Former Jabil CEO's wife in hospital after snowmobile crash in Michigan

St. Petersburg

Businessman's wife injured in Michigan

The wife of prominent area businessman Tim Main, who ran the electronics company Jabil for a dozen years, was seriously injured in a snowmobile accident last month and is still recovering at a hospital in Michigan.

Around noon on Feb. 15, Donna Main, 49, of St. Petersburg, was gassing up her snowmobile in Thompsonville, Mich. After she fueled up, Main tried to make a U-turn with her 8-year-old son on the machine and for an unknown reason lost control, said Sgt. Troy Lamerson of the Benzie County Sheriff's Office.

Main smacked into a gas station wall, and her son flew off into a snowbank. She was flown by helicopter to nearby Munson Medical Center in Traverse City, Lamerson said.

Her son was treated for minor injuries. Main's condition has since been upgraded to fair.

The gas station is next to a popular snowmobile trail, and Lamerson said it's common for snowmobilers to refuel there.

Tim Main was CEO of the then-Jabil Circuit, now just Jabil, which is one of Tampa Bay's largest public corporations. The company had about $18 billion in revenues in the last fiscal year and is currently valued at $3.81 billion. The company employs 175,000 people worldwide. Since he left the company, Tim Main and his wife have held many political and philanthropic fundraising events for national and local causes.

The Main family did not respond to requests for comment.
