Jim Dzengeleski

Owner, CFO
Jim went to Durham-Tech and NC State for medical technology but decided to pursue other avenues when he opened J&J Tent in 2005. While some may wonder why he entered the party rental scene, it seemed like a natural progression. Jim and his family previously opened and owned the Show Shide Restaurant. With a few tents and chairs, he started to support the family-run catering business by renting out quality products to create a full-package experience. Now, 20 years later, J&J Tent is a thriving business that prides itself on professional customer service and quality products.

Michael Cerasi

Owner, COO
Michael graduated from Glen Cove HS in Long Island NY, and moved to NC to get formal training in the “school of life and hard knocks.” He worked at the PNC arena (meeting everyone from professional hockey players to famous musicians) and got into the party rental business when Jim inspired him to pursue a new career opportunity. With over ten years of experience in the party rental industry, Michael embraces the mindset that “time flies when you’re having fun!”

Jason Heath

Owner, CEO
Jason attended Eastern Michigan University where he received a Bachelor of Science. He began his career in the event industry over 25 years ago when he started cleaning tents as a summer job while in college. Since then he has become a member of the American Rental Association where he achieved his CERP certifications.

Over the course of his career, Jason has had the opportunity to plan and execute events for a variety of clients. He has listened to Jeff Daniels play the harmonica while installing a tent and worked closely with the University of Michigan for events at the Chrysler Arena and “The Big House.” Like most professionals in the Event Rental Industry, Jason takes great pride in helping customers achieve their vision whether it’s chairs for a birthday party or an event tent to protect guests at a wedding.

In his free time, Jason likes to spend time with his wife Kai, daughter Solei, and son Vaughn. On weekends, you can find him honing his fairway shot on the disc golf course with fellow J&J team members.

Nina Fields

Office Manager

Nina is a proud Raleigh native and a passionate Bear at heart. She attended Shaw University for Business Management and later earned her real estate license in 2017. With over two decades of experience in customer service roles, Nina has honed her skills in both service and management. Her drive stems from a deep-seated love for ensuring client satisfaction and assisting others in fulfilling their needs.

When Nina is not immersing herself in work, you can often find her enjoying quality moments with her delightful son, Si. He keeps her on her toes, always brings a smile to her face, and even though he can be a handful sometimes, she wouldn’t have it any other way.

Nina’s roots trace back to rural North Carolina. This means frequent trips to the countryside to reconnect with family and relish the serenity it offers. She’s grateful to have found a team that shares a bond so deep and is thrilled to bring her touch to this wonderful company.

Testimonials

Hear what our clients have to say.

These guys are first rate. I had a chimney in the way, and instead of giving up, they worked for at least an extra hour to figure out how to get it done. Have used them 3 times since, they are the best.

Kevin B.

J&J Tent and Party Rental made renting a tent easy. The booking was made across country for a local facility event. The team was friendly, patient and timely. Thank you so much.
