  • Harley Wyatt
    Sales Manager

    Wow, time sure does fly by when you're having fun…. I started in the car business in 2008 and joined OCJ in April 2016. My two sons, Riven and Shelten,  they spend plenty of time playing with our dachshund, Milo, and our cat, Bobo. My main priority is time with my boys; but, when I'm not behind the sales desk you can find me fishing, traveling, riding my motorcycle or enjoying a cold beverage while grilling out by the pool.
