If you’re looking for someone to help promote your cause or prepare the gym for a party, Jester Jersey is your guy.

The Davis resident may have set the Guinness world record for longest paper chain Wednesday morning. During a 24-hour period, he stapled approximately 7,000 strips of paper together to form a chain 2,163 feet long — shredding the previous record by 921 feet.

Guinness officials must certify the result before his record is recognized.

Aside from breaking the record, his goal was to bring awareness to a charity set up for victims of the Boston Marathon bombing — www.gofundme.com/CelesteandSydney. Jersey plans to travel to Boston next year.

“I feel proud to be able to do this for a good cause,” said Jersey, who last year came up short in attempting to break the paper clip chain record. “They are getting closer to their goal every day.”

Jersey notes that he reached his goal with the help of numerous volunteers, including the Iota Phi chapter of Alpha Chi Omega sorority in Davis.
