Queen Francis Turner 

My name is Francis Turner.  I am the Krewe of Hebe Mardi Gras Queen for 2020.  I was born and raised in the great state of Arkansas and a lifelong Arkansas Razorback fan even though I have lived in Texas a lot longer than in Arkansas.  I have been married to Richard Turner for 45 years and have two wonderful children, Amanda and Josh.  I am an Administrative Assistant for Knuckols, Duvall, Hallum & Co., an accounting firm, in Marshall, Texas. I have worked there for 22 years.  I have lived in Jefferson for 12 years and before that in Marshall for 22 years.  Since living in Jefferson, I have been a member of the Krewe of Hebe for about 10 years.  I have been involved with Toys for Tots for 11 years with 10 years of that being deeply involved with the Casino Night fundraiser.  I am excited about representing the Krewe of Hebe as 2020 Mardi Gras Queen and would like to point out that the Krewe of Hebe isn’t just about celebrating Mardi Gras.  We also supporting many other community organizations. We are the sponsor for Toys for Tots which provides toys for hundreds of children in need in Marion County. We also participate in other endeavors such as the Blessings of Grace backpack program for Jefferson schools and we also volunteer to work the concession stand for Jefferson football games. I look forward to seeing you all in Jefferson this year! Laissez le bon temps rouler!  

King Jimmy Moore 

I am Jimmy Moore and I am your 2020 Krewe of Hebe Mardi King!  I was born in Southern Louisiana and moved to Marion County when I was 13 months old. I was raised in the Lassiter Community and attended public schools in Marion County. I acquired degrees from Texas A&M and Texas University during the period of 1953 to 1960 and many of you already know that I am a die hard Aggie fan! I was the owner and pharmacist of Denton Drug from 1960 to 1980 and established East Texas Forest Products in 1980. I currently own and operate the Lonesome Dove Drive Through Safari which is home to many loving animals that love to be fed by visitors from far and wide. I am the father of four. I am basically retired now but still involved in a few fun ventures.

Let the good times roll!
