The Real Santa.......Jim!

Santa Jim brought the spirit of the season to life at the Cookies with Santa event at the Serra Mesa Rec Center! His presence was like a sprinkle of magic, captivating everyone with his warmth, jolly demeanor, and that unmistakable twinkle in his eye.

Santa Jim wasn't just a man in a red suit; he embodied the true essence of Santa Claus. From the moment he arrived, the atmosphere became infused with joy and wonder. Children's faces lit up as they approached him, and even the adults couldn't resist feeling the contagious cheer he exuded.

His attention to detail was exceptional. He engaged with each child, listening intently to their holiday wishes and making them feel special. The way he interacted with everyone, whether posing for photos or sharing stories, made the experience truly unforgettable.

Best Santa Ever

Santa Jim did a wonderful job. He was on time, looked great, and was so good with all the children, especially the little ones. He really embodied the Christmas spirit, and fun and magical Santa energy. There were smiles all around, and we are already looking forward to next year. Thank you, Santa Jim!

I told him we will be using him EVERY YEAR! I highly recommend booking Santa Jim! He is the best Santa out there. And the kids had the best experience ever! Thank you so much Santa Claus! We love you!

The Real Deal

Santa Jim was beyond what we could have asked for our Polar Express Experience. He was kind and spent specific time with every child. Not one person left their time with Santa feeling anything other than the most special person in the room. We will be using Santa Jim again and hope many others will get to enjoy the magic of Santa through Santa Jim.

We had Santa Jim come to a holiday party where we were also celebrating
a birthday. He was perfect! The children stood speechless. "How could Santa ACTUALLY be here?" The older kids were warmed within minutes and participated to the delight of their parents who doesn't want one more moment of childhood from their tweens and teens? And the adults?
They collectively took a breath and watched magic. Santa Jim is a professional performer and clearly came directly from the North Pole. Singing, magic tricks, kindness were all mixed with a good sense of humor. Thank you, Santa. See you next year!

Christmas Came To Life

This is our second visit from Santa Jim. In 2020 he visited us virtually on zoom and made Christmas so special for a grandson. This year, Santa Jim visited our Christmas party in person and was a hit for the young and old, alike. He read stories and sang songs and engaged everyone in the room. He brought Christmas magic to our home and our grandchildren were enchanted! We all gathered around and took pictures with him. It was such a delight! Thank you, Santa Jim, for bringing our Christmas party to life and helping us create such special memories for our family.

Santa Claus Jim went above and beyond for our Christmas party! The children were thrilled to see his magic tricks and loved hearing a Christmas story from Santa. Thank you Santa Claus Jim! Highlight of our party this

Jocelyn B. - 2021

Santa Jim was magical! The kids were so excited to meet Santa! He was so jolly, friendly and full of joy! We enjoyed singing carols, silly jokes and special time with each child!

Kristen W. - 2021

Santa Jim was perfect! He had such great enthusiasm, charm, and humor. He came to my home for a Christmas party I was hosting. Everyone loved him and kept asking where I found him. He sang songs, read books, did magic tricks, took pictures with us, and asked each of the 25 kids we had at the party what they wanted for Christmas. It was such a memorable experience. You can tell he truly enjoys what he does. Leading up to the event he was very communicative and detailed with coordinating the event, asking questions I didn't even think of. I am already ready to book for 2022.

This was the first time my six year old had a virtual visit with Santa and it was awesome! She was absolutely thrilled! She had been questioning Santa because how can he be at all the malls, sea world, the zoo and prepare for Christmas all at the same time? But Santa can take some time to make a quick zoom call from the North Pole to say hello to one of his favorite children! Santa of San Diego did such a great job of keeping the magic alive! He remembered all the little details like our dogs name, our daughters many interests and even helped us get our 6 year old to try new foods! I highly recommend Santa of San Diego!

Santa's Surprise

Santa Jim's "surprise" phone call to our kids (ages 8 and 7) was so realistic, interactive and fun! Santa Jim took the time to learn about each kid and translate our information into a perfectly realistic dialogue. This was a great alternative to having Santa visit our house! We even received cute certificates a week later in the mail ensuring our kids were on the Nice List!

Christmas Highlight

Santa Jim was the highlight of our Virtual Christmas. From his fast response to my request through the day of the event, Santa Jim was very thorough and a delight to work with. His interactions with the many kids were well prepared and delighted them on Christmas Eve. This was my first time working with Santa Jim but will not be the last Christmas event we will work with him.

Scott C. - 2020

Santa Jim left no detail unattended! He was sure to have the names of all the children attending the virtual event, he read them a story, he was patient and funny and very respectful of our time constraints too! I would WHOLE-HEARTEDLY recommend Santa Jim for your Santa needs any year!!!

I would definitely rebook Santa Jim!

On a whim, I booked Santa Jim to delight the neighborhood children during the pandemic. We invited our neighborhood children to stop by, speak to Santa Jim, and drop off their letter to Santa. He was great with all the children, and adults. Here are some of my neighbor's responses "Santa had the best responses. Whatever the kids said, he knew just what to say" - Sharon. . ."Santa looked authentic" - Anna. . . "Santa made a magical moment for all of the children during some strange times" - Andrea. My children are 14 and 11 and they enjoyed Santa Jim's magic tricks as well. I will definitely rehire Santa Jim next year!

Best Santa Experience

Santa Jim was the highlight of my children's day! Santa Jim was spot on and his enthusiasm as Santa was contagious. My kids chatted with him, answering his questions, with excitement in their voices and amazement in their eyes. Santa Jim did a wonderful job and made the magic of Christmas begin right then and there. My kids have not stopped talking about it since!

Erin U. - 2020

Santa Jim made our grandson very happy this Christmas season! He incorporated family, pets, and personal details into his visit, and made him feel very special. Santa Jim is a professional.
We all enjoyed his stories, magic tricks, and songs. His jolly laugh made us all giggle along with him. My grandson was completely captivated and enchanted by his visit and quickly went about drawing the picture Santa Jim requested for Christmas morning. It was a delight and he truly brought the Christmas spirit into our hearts and home this season. Thank you, Santa Jim!

Something Special

Santa’s zoom video visit was really something special! Extremely personalized and straight from the heart. A must for any child on the nice list!

Our grandchildren had the most wonderful experience with Santa Jim. Jim doesn’t just say hello, he engages the children from the beginning. Jim asked us different things about the children prior to the call. Both children were amazed how much Santa knew about them. Their facial expressions and smiles were priceless.
We chose the live video and it was worth every penny. We received the video and was able to share it with other grandparents and great grandparents. It puts a big smile on our faces every time we watch the video. It’s something the children can watch over and over and have as a memory when they grow up.
I would highly recommend Santa Jim! He will be a part of our families future Christmases. Thank you, Santa!

The Real Santa

Santa Jim was amazing. All the other moms wanted to know where I found him...
the North Pole of course I said... he sang carols to the kids, read to the kids, and did magic tricks. One of the kids told her mom” this is the real Santa mom” he also passed out presents and took pictures. We will definitely use him for many years to come.

Excellent, patient & funny!

We hired Santa Jim for our Christmas party & he was the highlight! Incredibly kind, patient & funny. He got everyone involved (adults included) & truly brought the Christmas spirit alive. Thank you Santa Jim for making our holiday party an event to remember.

We couldn't have asked for a better Santa for our event!

Our fifth year of presenting a Family Day during the run of A Christmas Carol, as it is always a popular event. While the ornament making, cookie decorating, and hot chocolate are welcome and enjoyable, Jim’s attendance as Santa (three years in a row!) ensures the day will be a success. Children, parents and us always enjoy having Jim be our Santa. We couldn’t have asked for a better Santa and we will definitely keep you in mind for our future needs.

Santa Jim has entertained the children and parents at my Eastlake Preschool’s Christmas Party for six years straight. I won’t have another Santa. To me, he’s irreplaceable. He’s magical, entertaining and very, funny and quick-witted. He’s a lovely, kind, sweet, gem on and off the stage. I’m very, blessed by him. He’s always everything I hope for and imagine. We love you, Santa Jim.

Magical Night

Santa Jim gave our family a magical night, he brought the Christmas spirit to our family with songs, storytelling and Christmas magic. The adults felt like children, and the children were awestruck he knew so much about them. Santa Jim is part of our family tradition now.

Santa Jim crushed it as Santa at our Annual Holiday Event at Red Dragon Championship Martial Arts! The kids were ecstatic to meet such an authentic and engaging Santa at our event. Definitely will be booking Santa Jim again for our party next year!

Shigong G. - 2019

Santa was so much fun and hit with the kiddos at our party. He came in and sang a couple songs and was able to get the whole room singing. It set a wonderful tone for the rest of his visit. He was great with taking the gift requests and made sure he got time with every child. He was lovey and I would highly recommend him.

Great Time With Santa Jim

We hired Santa Jim for a client appreciation holiday party and since it was our first time hiring a professional Santa we were a bit nervous about how things would go. However, Santa Jim was absolutely amazing! Along with his heartwarming personality, he was also so entertaining and an absolute pleasure to work with. We will most definitely be reaching out to him for our next Holiday event!

Santa Jim gave my friend Shauna, who loves Christmas, the surprise of the year. Shauna carved out a special night for families to get together to make gingerbread houses, don ugly Christmas sweaters, and exchange white elephant gifts. Little did Shauna know that we had a surprise in store for her. Halfway through HER party, she heard a Ho Ho Ho. In walked Santa Jim. Shauna was speechless. Tears filled her eyes as she smiled from ear to ear. The families gathered around for pictures with Santa while Shauna watched with pure joy. The night was magical.

Debbie - 2019

It’s December 2018 and I booked my date for 2019 for Santa Jim to visit, it was that special of a evening for my family. This visit enriched the spirit of Christmas for the adults while exciting the children and allowing one child to be a child for another year by believing. That gift is priceless! Santa's visit was magical!

Wendy P. - 2018

Our kids are young (8, 6, 4) but skeptical. When Santa Jim arrived the entire experience was magical and fun for EVERYONE. The kids were mesmerized and the adults laughed. His presence added so much merriment and Christmas spirit to our evening! We can’t wait for another Christmas celebration with Santa Jim from Santa of San Diego!

Cari N. - 2018

Last year we hired James Pascarella to surprise our 7 grandkids who live here in San Diego. It was an off the chart incredible visit and our then 3-13-year-olds were indeed enchanted. Our two 8-year-olds followed Santa outside as he was leaving since they wanted to see how he arrived. Santa didn’t miss a beat and explained that he had borrowed a car and drove, as his sleigh was in the shop in preparation for Dec. 24th. They walked back into the house and announced to their other 5 cousins that this Santa was the real deal. We have booked him again for this holiday season and look forward to the interaction the kids will have with him. I cannot recommend anyone more highly. Have Santa come to your home.

Melinda - 2018

I run a mom's workout group and we have used "Santa Jim" for the last 2 years. He is such a fun Santa! The kids love when he reads to them, and he's very patient and understanding, especially with the little kiddos who are a little shy around Santas. I have recommended him to my friends for their company parties and always get positive kudos! We love Santa Jim!"

Sharla M. - 2017

This Santa (Jim) has become a very important part and a high point of my family’s Christmas tradition! For many years, he has arrived at our home with a big HO, HO, HO… knocking on the window and coming in to listen to each person’s Christmas wishes and read us the Christmas story! He calls ahead of time to learn a “fact” about each grandchild so as they sit on his knee to talk to him, they are always amazed as each year he knows something special that has happened in their life! Santa has gotten to know & watch our grandkids grow up through the years, and even the oldest ones in high school are still delighted to see him! He’s kind, funny, prompt, professional and a very well dressed Santa. We love you Santa! See you again in December!

Santa Jim gets 20 out of 10 gold stars from me. I host an annual pancake breakfast for the families enrolled in my preschool. Santa Jim was our first Santa and he is the only Santa I want. His presence is what I imagine the real Santa's to be. There is something special about his eyes and the way he looks at, talks to, and sings with the children. We knew he wasn't the real Santa, but the parents and I still had to constantly remind ourselves that he wasn't. I could not take my eyes off him. My teenage granddaughters were also mesmerized. His essence and showmanship was incomparable. When my first annual event was overall the moms said, "Where did you find HIM?" I am so relieved to know that Santa Jim is now handling his own bookings. We LOVE LOVE LOVE Santa Jim. I guarantee you will also.

Carole G. - The Fun Factory - 2017

Jim was our surprise Santa at a gourmet dinner party we hosted last Christmas for several couples. He was the hit of the evening with everyone talking about how entertaining he was.

We highly recommend Santa Jim for any adult party you might be thinking about.
