ere's a recipe for success: Take a
young person studying business,
partner him up with his accountant father
who has connections in the industry, stir
in an entrepreneurial, never-give-up spirit
and you have the makings that brought
South Jersey Party Rentals to its current
level of success. " It's your American story, "
says Jason Campisi, vice president and general
manager of the company, headquartered
in Pennsauken, N.J., which serves the
New Jersey and Philadelphia metro areas.
And yet, the father-son duo did not
make it all on their own. When Campisi
talks about the moments of pride he has
experienced since 1997 when he and his
father, Anthony, bought the full-service
rental company, he's quick to inject that
his team is behind their success. Without
the team, he says, " it's just a pile of stuff in a
warehouse. The team part is huge. " So are
the contributions from other family members,
including his wife and mother.

A diverse client base
South Jersey Party Rentals works with a
diverse set of clients, including sports and
entertainment, university work, weddings
and other events for catering companies
and individuals. Originally, its rentals
entailed roughly 70 percent tenting and 30
percent soft goods. Then about eight years
ago, that " lipped on its head. " Yet " the tent
division never shrunk, " says Campisi. " The
other stuff just exploded. "
When asked about past jobs, Campisi
jumps to the most challenging, describing
major concerts that involved weeklong
installations with " police, ire, secret service,
high-proile people, VIP tents, planning
over a major city, Homeland Security
... " Another high-proile opportunity
came when the company was hired for
Pope Francis' 2015 visit to Philadelphia.
" All the work that came together to produce
something of that magnitude was
pretty neat, " he says.
