MB Jessee Painting: Fully Invested in Our Community!

MB Jessee prides itself on our involvement in our community. We have participated in and sponsored numerous charity events over the years and help out whenever—and wherever—we can. In addition to our annual Project Color painting for charity project we also donate Painter For A Day certificates (the services of one of our foreman painters for an 8 hour period, a $600 value) to schools throughout the Bay Area to assist in their fundraising efforts dozens of times over every school year. A listing of our work in our community is below.

Painter For A Day certificates and other financial assistance is provided to too many local Bay Area schools and institutions to count! To name just a few: Crocker Highlands Elementary, Berkeley Arts Magnet, French American International School, Head Royce, Park Day School, Piedmont High School sports, Oakland Museum of California, the Parents Association of Piedmont, The Wheelchair Foundation, City of Oakland Defremery Skate Park, St. Elizabeth Elementary, and George Mark Children’s House. MB Jessee also sponsors a yearly Toys For Tots holiday drive and a benefit for the Alameda County Food Bank. Many of our employees participate in a Team MB Jessee AIDS Walk and donate blood together to the Oakland Red Cross.

We are also involved with the Children’s Support League’s Heart of the Home tour in Piedmont, an annual event that raises hundreds of thousands dollars for the CSL’s work on behalf of underprivileged children. MB Jessee underwrites many of the tour’s expenses every year and supplies a grand prize of approximately $3000 in painting services for the fundraising raffle.

Earlier this year we were pleased to be able to paint the exterior of Berkeley’s A Better Way, a social service agency devoted to the mental health needs of foster children. A Better Way entered our Project Color drawing and came in second place to this year’s winner, Berkeley’s North County Women’s Shelter, in our voting. We were so touched by their work there, that we were determined to reach out to them to find a way to help. We painted the building at cost.

We are incredibly proud of Project Color. Starting with a first year budget of just $5000, our financial commitment has increased every year to a now $15,000 yearly outlay as we start our seventh year. Project Color is happy to have the participation of every MB Jessee employee in our efforts every year. Our past Project Color recipients are:

  • Wee Care Children’s Center, Concord.
  • Claremont Middle School, Oakland.
  • Women’s Cancer Resource Center, Oakland.
  • Mission Neighborhood Health Center, San Francisco.
  • Compass Community Services Tenderloin Children’s Center, San Francisco.
  • Berkeley Food & Housing Project’s North County Women’s Shelter, Berkeley.

As we begin our seventh year of Project Color, we’re more invested than ever in helping our community!

Customer Reviews

“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

“I can't say enough about how courteous and professional my foreman was. He was on time every morning and arrived cheerful and ready to go. He is highly organized and very thoughtful. He was extremely careful and respectful when moving my belongings - a mature professional.”

— Nora Robinson

“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

“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 entire MB Jessee team is courteous, efficient and professional. From scheduling and estimating to the crew managers and crew, they all did an excellent job on a small (but complicated) two room project in my house. I'm already thinking about getting them scheduled for the next project in the spring.”

— Cari Cheney

“Awesome work by highly experienced, professional painters. They were: Conscious about the amount of time it would take. Ours had a lot of pre-work and took 3 weeks. Accommodating when we added a few last-minute changes Understanding when a heatwave hit and we remove some of the plastic sheeting over windows, which they had to put back up the next day. Accessible, especially the on-site crew (Hi Jose & Victor!) -- always answering questions and checking in. The end result is a perfect paint job that makes our 94-year-old house look brand new. I would definitely hire MBJ again”

“Many thanks to Rigoberto and Damon and the extraordinary team who transformed my castle in the skies.They are magicians. I appreciate their work very much.”

“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 walkthrough 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 J.

“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.”

— Suzan D’Arcy

“Hello Matt,Just another notice of thanks to your wonderful crew, Rigoberto, Javier and John. They did fantastic work, with Rigo providing meticulous and conscientious attention to the details and excellent woodwork finishing, as evidenced by the beautiful fireplace. Javier did a fantastic job in the bathroom especially, it looks "brand new," and John always does quality work, both with the interior and exterior. I can tell they care about what they do. Rigo's "punch out" was very thorough, too. I will call again when I need some more work and will definitely recommend your company and fine crew. I also felt as a homeowner, I could leave my house in their good hands during the day and that took a lot of worry from me, they were honest, prompt and reliable. They were also very kind, respectful and clean in their work, very professional. Thank you.”
