Jeremiah Graham started in the collision-repair business at 18 when a neighbor noticed his work ethic and offered him a job. By 25, he was the shop’s general manager. When the owner retired, Graham bought the shop’s assets and opened Oklahoma’s first Carstar location, hitting the ground with an aggressive marketing campaign that included direct mail, TV and successful advertising on a smartphone weather app. He also threw sponsorship behind numerous local school, community and charity events. In 2015 CNN Money recognized him as a top blue-collar entrepreneur and SEMA 35 under 35 Award in September 2015. Jeremiah is married to his wife Liz, who is a teacher at a local grade school. They have one school age daughter who keeps them both pretty busy.
