Early life and career
Oxley was born in Findlay, Ohio, and received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Miami University in 1966 and a law degree from Ohio State University in 1969. He was a member of the Alpha chapter of the Sigma Chi fraternity at Miami.
Oxley was elected a U.S. Representative in 1981 in a special election to fill the vacancy caused by the death of U.S. Representative Tennyson Guyer. Oxley began serving at this post in June 1981 in the 97th Congress.
He served as the chairman of the Committee on Financial Services, and was House sponsor of the Sarbanes–Oxley Act of 2002, which enacted "sweeping post-Enron regulations of publicly traded companies." He was also the House sponsor of a 2006 bill that condemned media outlets that had published information on a covert financial surveillance system.
Following his retirement from Congress, Oxley was named a nonexecutive vice chairman for NASDAQ, and a partner at the law firm of BakerHostetler in Washington, D.C. He later became a lobbyist for the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, the "self-regulatory body of the securities industry."
