  • JT Turner
    Sales Manager
    (765) 447-0808

    Jeffrey Turner, more commonly known as JT has been a certified member of the Mercedes-Benz Master's Sales Guild for over 28 years. During his exclusive tenure with the brand he sold over 3,000 vehicles.

    His energy and passion make him one of the strongest advocates for Mercedes-Benz you will ever meet and that may just be the reason that he is known among his friends and customers (which is pretty much the same thing - Jeffrey's "secret" nickname is Uncle JT) as the Benz Bully!

    JT is avid follower and enthusiastic fan of college basketball but he also enjoys fishing and boating very much.

    He and his wife Millie have been married for 26 years and they have one daughter.  Jeffrey's proudest moment was when he dropped his daughter off at college. He himself is a UK graduate: Go Wildcats!

    JT lives the Mercedes-Benz of Lafayette motto: "At Mercedes-Benz of Lafayette we sell fun and we want you to have some!"
