This was my second year working with Santa during Berne's Weinachtsfest. Santa was so attentive to each child and is truly the best Santa this side of the north pole. Thank you, Santa for bringing such joy to the children (and parents) of the Berne area. Ho ho ho!

Jolly Ole Elf did an excellent job at our event. He was very organized and communicative prior to the event. This is the BEST santa in town.

"SJ" never ceases to amaze us...
Our Annual Breakfast with Santa was another successful event for our community! "SJ" never ceases to amaze us with his ability to reach every one of our guests on their level. Children that came in timid and unsure, surprised even their parents by having a full conversation with Santa by the time they were ready to leave! We look forward to our visits from Santa every year, and so does our community!

Thank you for the wonderful visit! Felicity was clearly speechless but she couldn't stop talking about Santa after you left, so it was definitely a success! 🤗

Hi Santa, I came across your page as you visited some of my friends homes. I was actually hoping I could find you to tell you how much I appreciate everything you do. A few years ago we had you on the Santa Train. At that time my son had started questioning Santa (he was 7). His biggest question was how during this time there are so many Santa’s. I told him Santa had helpers but the real one is down here too. Fast forward to that Santa train and when we left he said mom that was the real Santa. Ever since then when we see you he still says your the real deal. This year we were blessed again to have you on the train and your patience you showed with my daughter who is obsessed with Santa was the greatest moment. Again thank you so much for what you do. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas .
Santa was wonderful! He was very punctual for the event and even went the extra mile of staying over his time limit. We had a company Christmas party that expected over 700 people, that didn’t phase Santa at all! He is very approachable and photogenic. He had no problem conversing either, he could talk to all ages all day. We look forward to bringing him on for future Christmas parties!

The Jolly Ole Elf was a wonderful Santa for our Weihnachtsfest in Berne Indiana. Santa was so good with children. He leaned down to listen to each and every child as they told him their wishes for Christmas. He had an amazing presence and a great smile and his suit was gorgeous.
Thank you, Santa, for such a terrific day.

Santa Jerry was booked for a private event for our family Christmas. Santa was once again an absolute joy to work with. He was on time, dressed to the “T” and everything I ever imagined in a Santa. He was so sweet, patient, and kind with my 4.5 year old niece.
He really went above and beyond to make the visit memorable for her and us!
You seriously will not be disappointed in him.

Santa Jerry is a special kind of Christmas Spirit! We are so grateful to have him every year at our annual event. The magic he weaves with each child giving them individual attention is very special. Even children that were hesitant to approach, ended up in full conversation with him! He goes to great lengths to cover every detail to be fully prepared to give his focus to each child that is on his lap.

Santa Jerry (Jolly Ole Elf) was absolutely perfect! Very professional and wonderful with all the kids and the adults too! Would hire him again and again. I also got lots of comments on how authentic he looked.
Thank you Santa Jerry! :))

It was a wonderful experience working with Jolly Ole Elf. All communication from the beginning to end was prompt and always in a great mood. I was never in any doubt that our event wouldn’t go as planned. He is very flexible and willing to do whatever it is we wished to make our event memorable. Pricing is very fair too.
The kids LOVED him. Even the adults. So many commented to me, “did you seriously pull him right from the North Pole?!” Why yes, yes we did ;)
Seriously he did not disappoint! He even was a sport and played along when the Grinch showed up!
If you want a REAL SANTA, I highly suggest booking with Jolly Ole Elf.h, 2021

Upon meeting Santa, I was convinced that he was indeed the real Santa. He was a kind, Jolly Ole Man. As he met each child, he was eager to listen to their requests and read the lists that they brought. Santa was just as you would expect, he was kind, jolly, attentive and made the kids smile. Thank you, Santa for coming to Berne, IN. We loved that you made time on such a busy day to visit our little down before heading to the North Pole to finalize all of the children's gifts. We can't wait to see you again next year.

Jerry started working with us on our Santa Train a few years ago and it helped us make a successful event even more successful. We provide caboose rides to more than 4,000 people over a three-weekend schedule. We get numerous compliments from our passengers on how wonderful Santa was and how he made the ride a special memory for their children. Jerry has been an outstanding addition to our event and we look forward to him returning every year."

"We want to thank you very much for this experience. You made our night by visiting with us all. You helped create memories that we will forever cherish and remember. You brought joy to our family tonight and for that I can't thank you enough. You were so patient and kind with Kaitlynn and she just absolutely adored you. You truly have a special gift!!!
Thank you again"

"I had Mr. Allen come to my house as Santa for a surprise visit at a party for friends. He was the most authentic-looking Santa I had ever seen, and many of our guests commented this also! It was such a great time and he was a joy to have! I would definitely hire him again for another party, maybe with kids next time as I know he would be great with them!"
"Santa Jerry is amazing – kind and always with a smile on his face! He goes the extra mile to make each child feel special.
He is the real deal from his custom suits to his well-manicured hair and beard. I believe in Santa (Jerry)!"

Santa Jerry is a pleasure to work with, very professional, friendly, patient and warm hearted. He engages well with each child and handles well those who are a little fearful. I had several of the children come in and leave saying, I can't believe the "Real Santa" was actually here. I would definitely recommend him for any Santa role and I look forward to working with him again in the future.”

"Mr. Jerry Allen not only is an awesome looking Santa, he has the personality and caring of Santa. I have managed lots of people who play Santa but Jerry brings the whole package. He truly cares about the children and families coming to see him. Even if they are not coming to see him and just walking by, he will try to interact and give them a smile, have a nice day or something. I only have two gentleman that I would give a recommendation for portraying Santa and Jerry is one. No one could go wrong for hiring Jerry in whatever capacity you need him for. A very genuine caring soul!"

We had the most magical visit with Santa at our local photographers studio, Sacred Images. Our children were in utter disbelief that the real Santa was in our hometown. Let me tell you after seeing him....my husband and I are true believers. He is the real deal Santa Claus. His warm smile and beautiful red suit brings pure joy to anyone's heart. Thank you Santa for giving us this lasting Christmas memory.

You're the most real Santa, looks and personality. My grandkids have not seen you in person but when I showed them your picture, the reaction was priceless. My oldest, he’s 5 now, said that’s really Santa for sure. I said how do you know, then he replied I just know! I hope someday we can have you meet them all.
I can say 2019 was another successful year here at Glenbrook! You looked great, were always smiling and helped make this past Christmas season a wonderful one for our guests that came to visit the Santa set. Thank you so much, and we certainly hope to have you back for 2020!

Thank you for once again making so many residents of St. Joseph Township's holiday so memorable! It is so heart-warming to see the children come to our event each year and see how they grow, but also how much they light up when they see Santa Jerry waiting for them! You always know how to reach even the most shy and the most afraid.
Glad to be on your schedule for next season!

Santa Jerry came to our family Christmas gathering this year, and he was amazing! He was so good with the little children – we could not get them to leave his side and lap. Their eyes lit up! The adults had so much fun with having him there also. There was so much laughter and joy when he was there. Our family has experienced loved ones leaving us way too early, so Christmas is always a joyous yet sad occasion. Santa Jerry brought that much needed joy in a year where some of our family members experienced yet another loss this year of a loved one going home way too early. We have more pictures this year of Christmas than in past years, as all cameras were out and many pictures with Santa Jerry; kids with Santa Jerry, families with Santa Jerry…
I would highly recommend having him at your gatherings. He does an excellent job!

Breakfast with Santa sponsored by Bob Evans featuring "Biscuits & Gravy"
“Santa Jerry is just the perfect combination of Holiday Cheer and approachability !
Many of the families that attended our Annual Breakfast with Santa had commented on how wonderful he is ! We had 2 different parents that were moved to tears after their child came in scared, unsure and frightened and were then getting their picture taken on Santa’s lap ! Santa Jerry took his time with each child, carefully listening to each request without making them feel rushed. His interaction with the children and parents in attendance was just magical ! All of the small touches did not go unnoticed. From his beautiful authentic suit, his rosy cheeks, to the magical glittery beard ! We are planning our events around Santa Jerry’s schedule !”

"We loved working with Jerry. Not only was he very professional, he was kind and aesthetically on point. He looks like the real deal. He photographs beautifully and brings out the joy in children and adults alike! It was an absolute pleasure working with him."
