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

“Matt, Julie & Ricardo, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the three of you for the wonderful job you did in hosting the SFBA NARI Chapter Meeting on Wednesday evening. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Members and guests alike walked away with a truly positive experience. The "painter for a day" and the cookies in the paint cans were an absolute brilliant touch and received rave reviews. What a wonderful way to do such positive marketing. Thanks again for a truly memorable experience for our members and guests. You are valued as a NARI member.”

— Judy Tufo, SFBA NARI Executive Director

“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”

“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 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

“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

“I highly recommend MB Jesse Painting to anyone looking for a professional team that does an impressive job. They are on time, efficient and clean up well each and every day they are on site. They pay attention to detail and listen to the needs of their clients. In addition, they give back to the community. A Five Star team all the way around.”

— Erin Troy

“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.”

“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.”

“In September, MBJessee finished painting two sides of our 3-story condominium building (six owners). We were impressed by the professionalism of the company and every one of its workers, Matt Jessee couldn't have been more helpful in planning the project. His painters were well-trained, easy to communicate with and eager to please. In addition to painting the stucco, they made extensive repairs on windows and frames, which will save us considerable money in the future. They finished earlier than anticipated, with as many as five men working on the job, and the scaffolding came down the next day. All of us were delighted with the results. Now my husband and I are looking forward to having MB Jessee paint our own apartment later this month. Matt and Gustavo (who will be our crew leader again) have explained how they will work to make the painting proceed smoothly while we're living here, and they have been endlessly patient with our protracted decision-making process. If you look at their website, you'll learn that MB Jessee is an exemplary company that takes good care of its workers as well as its customers, and contributes public service projects to the community. All in all, we can't recommend MB Jessee highly enough.”

“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.”
