American determination is recognizing the enormity of the task ahead,
then moving forward in faith with a commitment to succeed. Family-owned
and operated Big O Dodge Chrysler Jeep epitomizes American
determination as they proudly wave the Big American Flag on the Motor
Michael Odum founded Big O Dodge a quarter century ago, and
instilled in his sons Tanner, Jake and Kyle the spirit of service to
others in both business and community. Big O Dodge has now expanded by
acquiring the Chrysler Jeep franchise and is 80 employees strong.
Michael Odum left this world sooner than expected, but his
three sons were determined to carry on his legacy. Tanner, his eldest
son, assumed the helm and for almost five years did an excellent job
moving the business forward. Then last September, Tanner was taken
during a tragic accident. Now the middle son, Jake, is guiding the
business as dealer principal and younger son, Kyle, takes his place as
sales manager. They are working together to fulfill what was originally
their father's dream and now has become their own.
Through the devastating loss of beloved father and older
brother and regardless of recession, the Odum family maintains faith in
Jesus Christ and a true spirit of American determination.
