What's better than a Santa review from  the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society ?  Seems Santa Clause and trains go hand in had.  Look for Santa looking out the window of the Caboose.

Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society

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."

Dear Santa, 

"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"

Private Surprise Visit

"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!"

"The Real Santa"

 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 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.

"I just know.."

 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.

2019 a Success !

 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!

Heart Warming

 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!

Here's Santa looking at YOU !  Give ole Santa Clause a thumbs up.

Private Familly Christmas Eve visit

 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!

St Joseph Township Breakfast with Santa

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 !”

Photo shoot at the YWCA with Vera Bradley

"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."

Company Christmas Pary


We throw an annual Christmas party for our youth members and have been fortunate enough to book Jerry the past two years.  The kids LOVE Santa!  He communicates with us to make sure he arrives and leaves discreetly, he walks around and interacts with all of the families, and is patient and very kind with the kids as they sit on his lap and tell him what they want for Christmas.  He'll go the extra mile to put a smile on a child's face.  We've also heard many compliments about his look and beautiful Santa suit.  We have been very pleased with him!

Family Christmas Party

We've had Santa (Jerry) come to our family Christmas for the past 2 years and I can't imagine having a Christmas without him.  We have a lot of small grandchildren at least 20 when all can come.  He is so calm and caring even with all the chaos of the children all wanting to talk to him at once.  He will spend time with each and everyone of them and even my 4 year old granddaughter who would not have anything to do with him, but he won her over.  She had even crawled up on his lap while he read her a story.  Santa was even happy to have my 85 year old Aunt sit on his lap, and I believed she even blushed.  We have used another Santa in the past who I thought was great but after having  Jerry I know we will continue to have him come for our Christmas.  It is wonderful to know that these children will have memories that will last a lifetime.
