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.
Shirin is a detail-oriented, time management expert, and puts her analytical skills to work every day in our office. We appreciate her hard work and attention to detail!
Shirin is also a lover of the great outdoors - on her days off you’ll often find her hiking, enjoying the natural beauty in the surrounding Bay Area. She also plays the violin!
Vicente has been with us since 2003, and brings a high level of expertise, knowledge, and honesty to the table. Beyond his own abilities, however, he also is a gifted teacher. He cultivates and builds skills into newer members of the team, helping them become the best painters possible.
Vicente enjoys a wide variety of activities outside of work. Some days he may be bowfishing, others he might be training his dog, kayaking, or hunting. Or, best of all, he might just be relaxing with his family.
Gersson has a thrive to succeed, after 10 years with a career of customer service he wanted to do something new. MB Jeesee gave him the opportunity to start a new career as an apprentice. Two years later he is now one of our formans delivering effective and prompt painting process in our customers homes and businesses. Gersson’s major skills are communication, leadership and great customer service.
When Gersson is out of work he enjoys spending time with his family. Also he loves sports and trains MMA on a daily basis.
Albino Guzman is our Production Manager at MB Jessee. Originally from Southern California, Albino moved with his family to the East Bay in 1999. Albino began as an apprentice, and has climbed the ladder of success, working his way up to a foreman. He took over as our Production Manager in the fall of 2017. He has now been working at MB Jessee for 5 years. Albino enjoys spending time with his family and friends. Albino's best part of his job is being able to deliver a professional performance, and showing through the work process what professionalism means. His major strengths are his communication and learning skills, attention to detail, patience, and experience.
Cesar has been a member of our team for many years, and has filled various positions (including time spent as a Crew Leader). We are excited to now have Cesar as a Sales Representative, drawing on his extensive experience and focus on customer satisfaction to help guide our clients through every stage of the painting process.
Cesar is first and foremost a family man, enjoying nothing more than spending time with his wife and kids. When he does find time for himself after work and on the weekends, he loves playing baseball and soccer, and restoring classic cars (he recently finished a stunning 1969 Chevy pickup!).
Robert may be familiar with the sales aspect of the painting industry, but he also has a long history of actual trade experience to draw from. In fact, he started painting with his older brother when he was just fourteen years old, and his brothers to this day are all contractors. This familiarity with each part of the process allows him to see potential jobs from every perspective, providing a unique depth of insight.
Outside of work, Robert enjoys everything from grilling the perfect steak to diving into philosophical discussions with good friends. Reading, biking, and hiking over Half Moon Bay are a few favorites too.
Pedro is an organized, efficient leader, and thrives on having a clear plan of completion for every job site. Communication is certainly one of his strengths, both within our team and with clients, ensuring that everyone involved has a clear understanding of each step and stage.
Pedro is also a family man, and loves nothing more than playing with his kids at the park, or camping together as a break from the normal routine.
Megan is an organized, goal oriented individual with a strong work ethic driven by completion of projects and tasks. She enjoys speaking with and assisting our clients daily as she utilizes her exceptional customer service skills. Around the office, you will always find her smiling, laughing, and zooming around as if there is no time to be wasted.
When Megan is not at work she can typically be found spending time with friends and family as she is a very social person. When the sun is out, she enjoys doing just about anything outdoors and especially loves road trips to the beach.

“Julie,Just to let you know I am very appreciative of your crew catching the plumbing/mold problem. It was very astute of them. I wanted to let you know that again your crew has done excellent work here, please pass this along to Mr. Jessee. There are some bumps in the road here, but the painting and your crew has not been one of them. Their work is the only thing going right currently, and this crew is very nice and respectful. It is much appreciated. Thank you again.”
“Julie, by the way, I have never been so impressed with the service of a painting job before! It was like magical elves came and painted our walls without us having to do a thing! It looks amazing and just wanted to let you know how happy we are. Thanks”
“It was a great experience working with MB Jessee. The crew was careful and thorough as they painted the house, sealed stucco cracks, repaired dry-rotted wood, stained the deck, etc. Robert, Gersson, Jose, and all of the people involved in the process from the estimate to the job completion were friendly and professional.”

“MB Jessee painters are stellar! As a designer I've worked with numerous companies over the years, and MB Jessee is a top-notch firm. From the first phone call to the final clean up, every person is courteous, professional, and hard working. The owner, Matt, is a charitable leader who has instilled his team with integrity and honesty providing the customer with a first class experience at a fair price with a paint job that is guaranteed to last. I highly recommend MB Jessee. Thank you Matt and your STAR crew-Daniel, Rigoberto, Vicente, Edy, Pedro, and Mario, for a job well executed! Cynthia Brian, ASID, Starstyle® Productions, llc”

“The people at M.B. Jessee are great – from the painters to the office staff to Matt. Talk about leadership from the top.”
— Kevin Ames, Mark Becker Homes
“Edy and crew are hard at work. They are doing a great job. Very professional outfit you have. Your crew is a delight. You may use me for a reference!”
— Heidi B
“I loved working with M.B. Jessee from start to finish on a relatively small paint job that grew a bit. I felt in very good hands from the moment Matt Jessee came out to give me the estimate and talk about my job. He was very easy to talk to and he handled my changes very well. Then the actual work done by Rigoberto and Mario was impeccable. They were neat and meticulous and the paint job looks beautiful. I could not have asked for more and when I did, they accommodated me 100%. I will not hesitate to call M.B. Jessee again and to refer them to friends.”
— Nancy Kurkjian
“Just had MB Jessee paint the interior of our house and they did a wonderful job. They tackled some crazy wallpaper as well as painted some very high ceilings and walls. The whole process was quick and they did a great job! We are very pleased. I was also very impressed by the crew. They were very personable, kind and actually took pride in the work they were doing. In one of our conversations with the lead Ricardo, he actually told me he was very proud of how the rooms had turned out. I agree sir! It turned out great and it's not often you hear someone thinking of your home like they would theirs, and putting that level of work and quality into it. That made a huge difference in how I viewed this company. Ricardo, you were fantastic and thank you for the great job, we will be using you again.”
— Jeff M.
“Very easy to work with, they did an outstanding job with our project of re-painting our painting our kitchen cabinets. Given the scope of the job and that our kitchen is roughly half of our upstairs living area they did a fantastic job of minimizing the mess. Workmanship was top notch, would definitely recommend.”
— Vince Scola
“The completed 'Client Satisfaction Survey' we sent in only modestly reflects our total satisfaction with the work. As a retired small business owner, I compliment you on setting 'best practices' that are consistently followed. Everything described in your marketing materials was a reality! The crew is a super bowl team and our neighbors commented on how quiet they were. We are very happy to be a client of MB Jessee.”
“MB Jessee just finished our exterior and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The foreman (Pedro) and lead painter (Ricardo) were incredible to work with: they communicated scheduling clearly, Ricardo was a joy to be around every day, the showed up early every day, were incredibly tidy and did great paint work. The final walk through experience was incredible. Pedro pointed out items I missed demonstrating a clear desire to complete another quality project. I highly recommend them. As others have noted they definitely aren't the cheapest but you quickly realize that you're getting what you pay for. The 3 year guarantee is also a nice touch since there are likely touch up items that will show up after the job is done.”
— Joshua Jansen
“I want to express my thanks for a job well done. The rooms look great and there is no problem with any marks on the all the trim, floor, carpet, etc. The paint job is lovely. I also want to express my thanks for the level of professionalism the foreman showed in running the job. He was very attentive to any changes I needed to make, was extremely careful in getting the faux paint color and effect correct. Thanks so much for a job well done.”
