Meet Our Team

Matt Jessee

President

Matt’s initial journey as a professional painter began with a relentless commitment to two things: education and delivering a high-quality product that he could be proud of. This education was launched when he joined the Painter’s Union and had access to training from old-school, expert craftsmen. He also studied business, improving himself in every way he could on his own time.

While working as a painter, Matt built a clientele through sidework of his own. After his apprenticeship was complete, he was able to step out into full-time painting work, becoming licensed in 1995. His team was small, but he was dedicated to broadening both his knowledge and the scope of his services.

Today Matt is thrilled to be able to offer real, growing, career-oriented opportunities to his team. He also loves being able to give back to the community, encouraging and reinvesting in local charities and organizations. His eye is on the future as well as he plans for what the next chapters in the MB Jessee story hold.

When he takes a break from work, Matt is likely spending time with his wife and two kids. They all love the outdoors, enjoying skateboarding, mountain biking, backpacking, and snowboarding in the Tahoe area.
