I am Oliver D. Gray Jr. ("O.G."), also known as the "Magic Johnson" of insurance because I assist families and businesses in creating generational wealth for their families and loved ones.
For me, it all started when I was 17 years old. My father was 36 years old and suffering from kidney failure. After going out to dinner one Friday night he came home only to wake up barely being able to stand up due to the malfunction of his kidneys. While in the hospital my father caught pneumonia and passed away on the morning of my senior prom. My life was changed forever from that moment on. My father had no life insurance to help with the financial burden for me and my sister who was 11 years old at the time. Unbeknownst to me, the insurance seed was planted at that very moment.
Years later after graduating from college and finally paying off my student loan debt I started my own family. We vacationed in Sanibel Island Florida every summer which led to a growing desire to leave my hometown of Philadelphia, Pa. My wife at the time had an elderly aunt whom she would check up on often. When she unexpectedly found her dead one weekend she became the executor of her aunt's estate. She found an in-force insurance policy that made her the sole beneficiary of the policy. The policy provided enough money to make our Florida dream come true. Your family is your most valuable asset!
The insurance industry is constantly changing and continuing education is vital to staying ahead of industry trends. To better serve my clients there are several organizations I belong to along with continuing education courses that are required by the state of Florida.

-National Association of Insurance & Financial Advisors (NAIFA)
-Life Insurance Agents Group
-Life Health Pro
When it comes to enjoying my spare time, I am an avid bass fisherman. I also enjoy the beach, barbecues, watching a good movie, and reading a great book. I try to attend as many sporting events as I can, with my favorite teams being the Eagles, Sixers, Flyers and Phillies (all from my hometown of Philadelphia)!
