He was born in Chihuahua, Mexico, where later his family relocated to the Sun City when Leeser was nine years old. Since an early age, Leeser realized the importance and value of hard work; his first job came when he was 16 years old.

In 1979, Leeser began his career in the auto industry, working with several dealerships in El Paso. His most notable career opportunity came in 2001 when he became president and dealer operator of Hyundai of El Paso. Through his leadership, Oscar turned a store that was only selling 15 cars a month into today’s number one overall dealer in El Paso. His store is also the number one Hyundai dealer in the south central region and sixth in the nation for Hyundai dealers.
