Utah Jazz Bear

Jazz Bear has been wowing audiences since 1994, when he first debuted by rappelling down from a catwalk high above the court. In the hundreds of games since, he has only increased the intensity of his stunts—whether he's flying down the concourse steps on a plastic sled or doing a handstand on top of a 20-foot ladder at center court—as he continues to entertain fans of all ages.

In The Wild

Bear has shown just how much he cares by dedicating thousands of hours to his community initiative, Bear Hugs for Kids. From running annual fundraisers that benefit hundreds of local children to fostering healthy lifestyle choices at some 40 school assemblies each year, Bear has a heart of gold and is always willing to lend a paw for a good cause.
