Jon Lisa’s alter ego comes in the form of a huge Polar Bear, and he’s not afraid to take some chances while posing as Klondike.
Lisa’s first outing as Klondike came during a Homecoming football game. The first thing he was told by previous Klondikes was “Don’t let the cheerleaders lift you up,” but he just had to find out for himself what it was like. It wasn’t easy, but luckily he stayed right side up.
Keeping Klondike’s secret was no easy task, especially when he was always running into his friends and classmates while in the Polar Bear suit, but it was also one of his favorite parts about the job.
“I’ve had people say, ‘You’d make a good Klondike,’” he says, “and I just laugh because I am Klondike.”
