God called "Claus for a Cause", Santa Jim Steinmetz, home to Heaven August 29, 2015.  Jim Steinmetz and Ann were Santas for a cause that donated all of their earnings to Breast Cancer Angels.

Always one to know the value of sharing, Jim looked to find ways to pass along the blessings in his life. Not long after he retired, Ann encouraged him to put his jolly character and generous heart to use as one of Santa’s special helpers. Something that began as a kind gesture of delivering Christmas gifts to families of women who were suffering from breast cancer quickly turned into a staple in the fundraising efforts of Breast Cancer Angels. Santa Jim and his beautiful Mrs. Claus, Ann, made countless visits and appearances to share their joy to all who were blessed to have the experience. Whether it be from large resorts, cooperate events, or small family gatherings, all of the proceeds went directly to Breast Cancer Angels.

"Our sorrow is deep and painful, but knowing he achieved his life’s purpose, we are able to find some peace. From here, may we each do our part to continue the legacy that he has left as a most precious gift for each one of us who was lucky enough to know him, love him, and share his life with him."


Jim was a Life member of the Fraternal Order of Real Bearded Santas
