Mr. & Mrs. Claus
Prima Familia Nativitatis
For 25 Christmases Black Hills Santa and Mrs. Claus have brightened the Christmas season for families, youth organizations, businesses, schools, libraries, and U.S. Army units across the United States. They believe it very important that each person they visit feels they have spent a magical time with the one and only Santa and Mrs. Claus. Professionalism and quality shine through in their outfits, demeanor, and passion for Christmas.
The Guy Behind the Beard
At 3 years old, Black Hills Santa (Jason Yeary) visited Santa Claus Land in Santa Claus, IN, beginning a passion for
Christmas and Santa. At 16, Jason portrayed Santa for the first time and, once he became a father, Jason began to regularly portray Santa for his children and other young family members before portraying Santa for the United States Army, public libraries, and businesses. In 2021 Jason began to portray the Patron Saint of Children, St Nicholas, for area churches. Jason is a member of ClausNet, a professional Santa community, where in October 2019 Jason was selected as "Member of the Month". He holds an Associates of Santa Claus (International University of Santa Claus), and various graduate degrees from Liberty Univ., Regent Univ. School of Law, and Anna Maria College, and is fluent in ASL.
The Lady Behind the Guy with the Beard
Mrs. Claus (Nicole) met Santa in high school and 30 years later, she keeps everything working properly at the North
Pole. She has served as a Girl Scout leader and is always helping out others, like setting up angel trees in Black Hills communities in December. The twinkle in her eye and warm smile conveys the Mrs. Claus portrayal everyone expects. Mrs. Claus keeps extra busy raising three kids, conducting homeschooling lessons, and managing the home. For those military families, Mrs. C knows the whole family serves our nation when a loved one is deployed, especially at Christmas. Mrs. Claus has Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of Southern Indiana. Santa and Mrs. C’s experience in working with children greatly benefits when they visit with families.
