Anyone who has lived in Jennings or the surrounding cities for a significant amount of time has likely heard the name of, if not actually come into contact with, Bernard Marcantel.

The local lawyer, past district attorney and city judge, outdoorsman and father has become an icon of public service in the Jeff Davis area. Endearingly and eternally nicknamed “Judge,” Bernard Marcantel has invested 60 years of his life in the parish, and continues to do so to this day. His legacy is one of not only hard work, but of genuine care for his community – thus why his family and friends saw no better way of commemorating Judge’s upcoming 90th birthday than to invite the public to a celebration at the Grand Marais Ballroom today, Sunday, July 14, from 3-5 p.m.
