Every time I see Santa with a resident I smile. He brings us back to our years of adolescences and we can’t help but believe! Everything he does from his outfit to his demeanor says “St. Nick” there’s no way he can put on the act.. he is the real deal! We are blessed to have him here at Little Sisters of the Poor.

I have been working with Santa Jerry for several years as a photographer. Many of the children I photograph think that he is the only real Santa and the rest are just his helpers. He is kind, funny and always has a good story to tell about an elf or a reindeer. He is great to work with and I hope he never retires! We LOVE Santa Jerry.
“His eyes do twinkle and the dimples are merry!
His cheeks are like roses, his nose like a cherry….and his voice is everything you expected Santa’s voice to be.
If you have never been a believer – you will be after you meet Santa Jerry. Adults and children alike stop when they see him, want their picture with him, and remember…. the wishes in their hearts.
Santa Jerry is Christmas – 365 days a year.”

“Santa Jerry is the best!!! I think he is the real Santa…and Santa Jerry is his undercover disguise when he is away from the North Pole. He is amazing and really connects with people when he meets them whether it is out in the community or at an event. Please call Santa Jerry if you want the best Santa ever at your next event.”

“Santa Jerry is a truly gifted Santa! He brings the spirit of Santa Claus alive for people of all ages. I have watched him resurrect memories of Santa in the elderly, amaze children when they discover and talk with him in restaurants, stores and other unexpected places, and transform adults into kids excited to talk with Santa and have their picture taken with him! Santa Jerry keeps the spirit of Santa and Christmas alive throughout the year!”

“In my position as the VP of Santa America and National Director of the Military Support Program, I have worked with Santa Jerry over the past several years. He has volunteered as a palliative visitor to Wounded Warriors and their families, bringing joy and momentary respite to those who have lost much in the service of this great nation. He is an experienced showman and has appeared in advertising media nationwide. Santa Jerry is a truly professional Santa and wonderful showman.”

“There is no coincidence that I have the same last name as Santa Jerry because I am a relative. But, I am also objective and can assure anyone reading this profile that Santa Jerry is an exceptional Santa. Santa Jerry is compassionate, caring and generous and a wonderful story-teller. His smile is priceless and it does indeed create a twinkle in his eye. Children …and adults who still believe…see it immediately. Even adults who won’t let themselves believe in Santa suddenly find themselves wondering “maybe this is the real Santa?” not long after they encounter him. And, it doesn’t matter where they encounter him. The grocery, the drug store, the mall, the airport or in church. He draws them in with his smile and warming presence and they are carried away by the magic of this iconic figure. Santa Jerry is devoted to his role as a man who represents the magic and joy that is Santa Claus. His devotion could mean attending annual Santa school or staying current with his hospice work or working alongside other Santa helpers learn their trade throughout the year. If you are considering asking Santa Jerry help you to bring the magic of Christmas to your home, business or social event, I assure you every part of the interaction will be joyful and filled with magic.”

“Santa Jerry is one of the best Ambassadors for Santa Claus that I know. His love of sharing the spirit of Christmas every day is as genuine as his snowy white natural beard. When you meet Jerry, you walk away believing you just met Santa Claus. he is a blessing to the Santa Claus community as well as to the people he serves wearing the “Red Suit”.”
