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

“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”

“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.”

“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

“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.”

“Charles finished yesterday and did a fantastic job. We really enjoyed meeting Charles and having him in our home. He is a great guy in addition to his attention to detail in his work, the protection of our floors, walls and furnishings, and his overall interaction with us both. I would be pleased to recommend him to any of my clients.”

— Ken Morrison

“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

“Matt, We are very happy with how all of the painting worked out. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the work in the bathroom. I liked working with Victor, he and Marvin were extremely conscientious about doing a great job, not just the minimum. I know the front door took a lot longer than you'd expected. But they did it PERFECTLY. We never thought it could turn out like that! Thanks again for the great work. We'll be calling you again in the future!”

We definitely recommend this company, and Gersson and his crew.”

“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!”

“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!”
