Serving MOCHA - Museum of Children’s Art in Downtown Oakland

If you follow our blog or social media, you know that our Project Color Painting for Charity event is a highlight of the year for us. It’s also the result of months of planning, accepting nominations from our local community, and offering our friends and neighbors the opportunity to vote for a candidate.

It’s a lengthy process and decision, and this means that we grow more and more invested (and excited about) the project as the months roll along.

This year’s recipient was MOCHA l Museum of Children’s Arts right here in Oakland (if you aren’t familiar with this incredible organization and the work they do, please visit their website). After being voted/chosen to receive $10,000 of free painting services, we rolled up our sleeves and got to work this past Saturday (10-22-16).

Fresh Color, Fresh Encouragement, and a Whole Lot of Teamwork


Starting the day bright and early, we carefully set our plans. The scope of the project called for a clear strategy, and for having everyone on the same page.

We wish we could bottle up the vibe and enthusiasm that filled MOCHA’s space and share it with you directly. From our team happily donating their time to the bright colors on the walls, the environment was charged with positivity.

The next best thing to seeing it in person is to click through the photos above, and definitely watch this video that was live-streamed during the event. It includes a walkthrough of the spaces we painted, a look at the team in action, and a quick chat with Matt Jessee.

Thank You!

We would like to thank you, our local community, for your interest, votes, and helping us spread the word about this fun event. We also would like to thank Sherwin-Williams for generously donating the excellent paint products we used. Our team also deserves a big thank-you for their extra work, initiative, and enthusiasm, and for being the arms and hands of MB Jessee’s community focus.

And, of course, we’d like to thank MOCHA! Keep up the wonderful work you’re doing, and enjoy those fresh colors.

Customer Reviews

“The finish on my kitchen cabinets had failed, becoming tacky and grimy around the handles. M B Jessee gave me a reasonable quote, far below some others, and did an outstanding job, striping the original varnish and refinishing with a new lacquer finish. The cabinets look like new. Work was done 1 day faster than estimated. The crew was extremely hard-working, considerate, and neat. Highly recommend M B Jessee.”

— Carla Banks

“Today I received a beautiful bouquet from your company. It was totally unexpected and very much appreciated--a lovely surprise. Also today, your crew finished my job. I am so pleased with all their fine work. Richard is absolutely amazing and a total delight to work with. He was also extremely helpful during the paint color process. The interior work in my home far exceeded my expectations. A big thank you to you and the crew for an outstanding job. Thank you, thank you for a terrific job!”

“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

“Thank you for the support you have given the Women's Cancer Resource Center over the past year!”

— Margo - Director Women's Cancer Resource Center

“My entire experience with MB Jesse was very professional. The crew were very friendly and super accommodating of my ridiculous schedule and geriatric pets in the house. The finished product, which was pretty much my entire house, far exceeds my expectations. Would definitely work with them again!”

— Heather Jordan

“Everyone I dealt with was nice, helpful, and very professional. The price was reasonable! (I didn't feel like I was getting the "San Francisco price." The attention to detail and work quality was excellent. They did what they said they would do in the exact timeframe they said they would do. Highly recommend!”

— Tim Tyson

“I just wanted to thank you all for doing such a phenomenal job on our recent house painting. We are very happy with the outcome and can't say enough good things about the crew. Everyone working on the project was outstanding and made it a great experience. Thanks to everyone.”

“The painters at MB Jesse are top notch! Cesar's team was super friendly and helpful. They were very polite and accommodating. Their expertise in everything painting related was evident in their attention to detail and efficiency painting tricky spaces. The apartment looks brand new!”

— Adam Swisher

“In all the years I've worked with MB Jessee, I'm always so impressed by your crews. They are so respectful of everything--you never even know they're there! Except that the paint looks amazing when they're gone. We've had one showing of our home and already have an offer. I'm sure it is because the paint looks so beautiful.”

“Our paint crew did a great job and the foreman, Gersson was exceptionally great to work with. He was always available to answer questions, good at problem-solving, very patient, kind, and highly professional with great customer service. We definitely recommend this company, and Gersson and his crew.”
