|After 14 years in law enforcement, Jack Hebert got involved in the automobile industry when he went to work for Don Siebarth in Lake Charles. Over the next 11 years, he worked hard and learned as much as possible about the business. In 1987, he opened his own dealership, All Star Buick GMC Truck, Inc., in Sulphur, Louisiana. Among his achievements is being awarded the Mark of Excellence as one of the highest performing Buick and GMC dealers in the country.
Jack strongly believes in constant training. All Star has one of the strongest training programs in his area, a key to his dealership’s success. This commitment to excellence has earned his body shop employees a “platinum” status and 100% of his service technicians are ASE Certified. He has also been a long-standing member of the Louisiana Automobile Dealers Association as well as the National Automobile Dealers Association.
Jack is known around the dealership for is his involvement in every sale and his dedication to complete customer satisfaction. Customers are given his cell number and can call him anytime! His favorite thing is a giveaway he does with the kids. Each child that comes into the dealership is given a gold dollar coin by Jack and encouraged to start a collection. By the time they leave the dealership, they are calling him “Paw Paw Jack.”
Jack donates his time working for many civic organizations, including the Sulphur Group, McNeese Boosters, West Cal-Cam Chamber, Southwest Louisiana Chamber of Commerce, and Thoroughbred Breeders Association. He is also heavily involved in promoting new business to impact the economy in southwest Louisiana. He helped pass a referendum for Delta Downs, L’Auberge, and Mojito Pointe, which has created over 20,000 jobs for the area.
Jack Hebert’s true labor of love is his horse farm, All Star Farms. Jack’s late wife Carolyn had, throughout their married life, marveled at the beauty of paint horses and the two of them often talked that someday if they ever were in a solvent financial position, they would fill that spot in Carolyn’s heart. Jack has been in the horse business over 40 years, but only after the automobile business began to grow and became extremely successful, were they able to fulfill their dream. Jack, in honor of Carolyn, poured his heart into having the best-bred paints, with the class and quality which would make Carolyn proud. With his farm now reaching heights they only aspired to, Jack can now offer some of the best black and white overo paints in the industry.
Jack and Carolyn have three children, one son, Kevin, and two daughters, Khristine and Kelli Hebert Engel. Both daughters are heavily involved in the dealership. Khristine is the General Manager and Kelli is the Finance Manager.
