JP Legault
JP Legault
Sales Manager

JP was born and raised in Chilliwack but has been in Dawson Creek since 1986. Here, he has raised seven children with his wife of 20 years. Weekends are often for catching up around the house and enjoying family planned activities.

JP wears many hats around the dealership. Some of his daily tasks include: appraising incoming trades, working with wholesalers, business development, marketing, and so much more. JP is quite stubborn but this drives the rest of the team to succeed. Not a day goes by where he doesn’t reference a film from 1980 or talk about CrossFit.

JP had two quotes to share:

“To live is to risk it all. Otherwise, you’re just an inert chunk of randomly assembled molecules drifting wherever the universe blows you.” – Rick Sanchez

And,

“I am Groot.” - Groot
