Making your event magical

Cari B.  recommends Chicago Santa Jim Jensen.
December 2023


We hired Santa Jim for a Park District Winter Frostival event and he was absolutely amazing! He looks like a storybook Santa and patient and engaging, especially with children who were a bit nervous meeting Santa. Our families loved him, and we've already asked him back for Frostival 2024! Jim has also DJ'd a Family Valentine's event and knows how to bring the party and get both children and parents on their feet and dancing. Highly recommend!!!

Amazing visit! My son was in complete shock when Santa came to our house. He was ready to go back to the North Pole with him! Santa did an awesome magic coloring book and read a story. He even took pictures with my son who wanted to dress as Santa too! It was GREAT!!!

I have hired James Jensen at The Arboretum of South Barrington for multiple events and I cannot say enough about him!
He is fun, professional and an A+ entertainer!

The Arboretum of South Barrington:

We laughed, we danced, we guessed our answers and we had fun!! Thank you to all who came out for our first Family Trivia night last night at The Arb!! Thank you James Jensen for a fabulous show!!

Awesome virtual game show. We booked the show for a virtual family game night, and everyone loved it.

I immediately received messages from parents afterward saying how much fun they had (and their kids did too).

There were questions for kids and adults, and it was great to be able to do something TOGETHER as a family.

There were some interactive parts, and it held our kids' attention... which isn't always easy to do through a screen.

Thanks again for a great show!!!

We had Jim do the Virtual Trivia Game show for our school instead of the traditional Valentine's Day party. All of the students loved it and all grades K-5 were so engaged. They were laughing and dancing it was so great to see. Our teachers loved it too. We will be having Jim back in the future. Truly it was great

Our organization has been fortunate to have Jensen entertainment at both virtual and in-person Corporate events. AMAZING! Jim keeps the pace moving, the topics engaging and the participants laughing. Not easy in a large, diverse group! Thank you Jim!!!

He was so entertaining at our elementary school’s Halloween assembly! He had 400+ kids engaged and laughing and fascinated with his magic (adults too!). Highly recommend!

Superb, interactive, engaging virtual show. Our Cub Scout Pack was entertained and had a sense of togetherness that's been lacking this year (2020). Thank you, Jim, for doing an awesome job and connecting us all! Highly recommend!

Casey Hanen.  recommends Jensen Entertainment. 2020

This was fantastic! We had family game night as a school event, It was so interactive even the pickiest kids loved it. The questions were a great mix of kid and adult and when we had extra fun with dancing you made sure to spot light everyone involved. No one was left out!! Fast paced and hard to lose interest. Excellent! Will definitely be using you again!!

Jim was a great hit at our party, his entertainment was such a welcome change for a company Christmas Party. He was able to interact with every employee, either outgoing or quiet, and made everyone laugh! We have had great feedback from our staff. I would recommend him for any event. 

-Kathy P, 12/10/2009, Christmas Party, Lemont, IL

Jim did a great job! I've been running a camp for quite some years and its always difficult to get entertainers that are able to entertain ALL the participants! He pleased everyone from the 6 year olds, the 13 year olds and even our counselors (15-25)! He was also very accommodating in running his game show without prizes or points (our camp doesn't keep score!). The game show was absolutely great. Old songs, new songs, all of it was so much fun. Everyone was on their feet and having a great time. I would definitely recommend James for your event. 

-Samira G, 7/28/2009, Community Event, Chicago, IL



AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME. I would hire him over and over again. All of my clients left my event saying it was the most fun they had ever had at a Christmas party!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

-Alicia C, 12/3/2009, Corporate Function, Peoria, IL


Awesome show. Jim came out yesterday to perform for our Cub Scout families. The kids and the parents all had a great time, Jim is great with the kids!. Jim does a great job of getting the kids and adults involved in his show. Many parents commented that they enjoyed the show and asked how we found Jim. Jim was great to work with through the whole process. I would recommend him to others and would certainly invite him back to our scout pack. 

-Matt Or Kim M, 12/13/2009, Christmas Party, Naperville, IL



We had Jim come to our house for our 8 year old son's birthday party. He was outstanding! The kids and adults were amazed and had such a great time. Jim was professional, funny, and extremely talented. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for great entertainment for any event. We know our son will remember this birthday forever and his friends will be talking about it for a long time. Thank you Jim for making our son's birthday so fun and memorable! 

-Peter R, 2/28/2009, Birthday Party - Adults, Huntley, IL


Jim performed for our Cub Scout Blue & Gold Banquet this past weekend. He entertained siblings as young as 2 to our oldest guest who was 90. He had a great show that kept everyone laughing and amazed. We would definitely look into hiring Jim again for another event. You won't be disappointed! 

-Cheryl S, 2/22/2009, Banquet, Glendale Heights, IL


James Jensen put on a GREAT performance for our Christmas party. Everyone from the great-grandparents to the youngest children enjoyed the show and many commented that this was the best show we've ever had. It was also fun for two of the children to go on stage and help with the magic tricks. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a magician. 

-Kathy L, 12/2/2008, Christmas Party, Ashkum, IL


I recently had a birthday party for my 8 year old son. 22 guests arrived (mostly boys) and James kept them entertained the entire time! Thank goodness! Every parent at the party (approx. 8) asked for his business card and commented how professional and creative he is. Don't take my word for it...on the way home I had a van full of children and they all agreed the party was GREAT and said everyone was going to write about the party during writers workshop the next day at school. It made it all worth it. Thank you James! 

-Elizabeth J, 10/9/2008, Birthday Party - Adults, Northbrook, IL


The Magician that arrived on time was very appropriate for our Cub Scouts, ages 1st – 4th grade, and their parents. He was entertaining and kept the scouts and parents interested all night. I will be using his service in the future for our scouting events. 

-Bill R, 4/11/2008, Club, Mundelein, IL


Jim was willing to meet all requests that we had. He arrived in a timely manner and handled everything like a true professional. After my event I received several positive comments from my guests on Jim. Kids and parents had enjoyed his show saying his magic was fun to watch and that he made them all laugh. My event was for kids with cancer and these are the kids that Jim had to entertain. I think Jim too was enjoying himself and truely loving what he was doing. We had so many kids that Jim stayed a little over to see to it that everyone got a balloon animal or saw his tricks. I could not have asked for more from Jim. I highly recomend Jim for your next event. 

-Brian M, 3/15/2008, Fundraiser, Medinah, IL


James Jensen came through for our party with flying colors he was very professionaland very accommodating,his staff was great we had a wonderful ballonist (the best in the city) which delighted the kids and we even had a money machine with an attendant which was a big hit at our party. I would HIGHLY recommend James Jensen for any party. 

-Therese G, 4/19/2008, Anniversary, Chicago, IL



We hired Jim Jensen for My daughter's 5th birthday party. He was wonderful, my little girl was ecstatic; she had a smile on his face the entire time! All the adults loved him also, he had then party going!!! I will defiantly hire him again and recommend him out to other family members, friends and co-workers. Thanks Jim! 

-Shelley R, 9/13/2008, Birthday Party - Adults, Roselle, IL


We all enjoyed and loved the act. Kids couldn't stop taking about it. Adults too had a good time. I would rate Jim as highly professional and woulddefenitely recommend to my friends. 

-Sonu C, 8/2/2008, Birthday Party - Children, Hoffman Estates, IL


Jim did an excellent show for our 2-year-old's birthday party. He did a music/game show as well as balloon animals. All of our guests, both kids and adults, got involved and really enjoyed the show. The kids especially liked dancing, winning prizes and getting balloon animals. It was the perfect event for our party. I would definitely book Jim for another event and highly recommend him! 

-Sarah G, 6/21/2008, Birthday Party - Children, Palatine, IL

I was extremely impressed with Jim. He was professional. He was on time and was eager to meet our desires for the events. He went out of his way to make sure that we would be happy with the events. He enthralled our customers and employees. I will use Jim's services in the future and have already recommended his services to associates.

He kept the kids engaged the entire time. Very appropriate for a mixed crowd of ages (young and adult). Would definitely recommend him. 

-Staci M, 12/9/2007, Birthday Party - Adults, Carpentersville, IL



The Balloon Twisters were great and the kids loved them. The strolling magician entertained the crowd as well. We had over 600 attendees at our holiday brunch and everyone commented on the entertainment. Jim was very accomodating to us especially with all of our last minute requests. We will absolutely use him again in the future! 

-Lisa B, 12/2/2007, Corporate Function, Rosemont, IL


Jim was a pleasure to work with, and we would definitely call on him again.

The Caricature artists sent by James Jensen were quite professional. The helped to make the party an excellent event. I do not do a lot of parties like this but I would use them again if I had a similar party. Barry Goldberg
