Jerry used to be a jockey; he had his first race in 1957 when he was eight. His family trained quarter horses and later switched to thoroughbreds. 

Jerry has also worked as a food specialist with Agriculture Department; while working there, he taught at a track in his house. 

Marcia grew up in the little community of Martinville. Her alma mater is the University of Louisiana for secretarial science. Although Marcia could work for a law firm, she chose to work at the School Board to be home for the boys, Jeff and Jake on their vacations. 

Jeff is a horse breeder from Louisiana. He has been breeding thoroughbred horses since 1991.

Jeff has also served as a director for Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association. He had received a football scholarship to McNeese University in Lake Charles. Still, his athletic career was cut short after he tore his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his senior year. Jake joined his brother to breed horses after his retirement.
