Project Color—8 Years, Stronger Than Ever!

Hello Friend! The days are growing shorter and colder bit by bit; autumn is here. As I do every year around this time, today I spent some time leafing through our Project Color files. It is filled with letters, stories, and pictures of nominees from years gone by. It is both hard and wonderful to believe that we are about to enter our 8th year of our annual $10,000 Painting for Charity event, Project Color. Can you believe that?! The work we’ve done with Project Color over the years and the people we’ve been able to help is something that is very close to our hearts at MB Jessee.

That, my friends, is where you come in! We are looking for a deserving Bay Area family or an outstanding nonprofit organization that badly needs painting but simply cannot afford it. What we want from you is to nominate them! All you need do is send us their story along with some pictures—help us see, feel and understand why they deserve to win our $10,000 painting makeover! You can even do it anonymously if you like. Then MB Jessee Inc as a whole—every one of us!—will meet and vote to choose the winner. The painting will take place in spring 2013.

Some of our past Project Color winners include Oakland’s Primera Hispana Iglesia Presbiteriana, Berkeley’s North County Women’s Shelter and Women’s Cancer Resource Center, San Francisco’s Tenderloin Children’s Center and Mission Neighborhood Health Center, Claremont Middle School in Oakland, and Concord’s We Care for Children.

So please, won’t you take a moment to nominate a deserving family or nonprofit organization that you know deserves our help? Ring our phones off the hook and flood our email inboxes! You may send stories and pictures by email or USPS: julie@mbjessee.com or MB Jessee Inc 1552 Beach Street Suite G, Oakland CA 94608. For more information or flyers, please call 510.655.7000.

The deadline for submissions is Friday December 14th, 2012.

Customer Reviews

“The kitchen looks NEW! You guys are amazing.”

“High quality work from a pleasant and qualified staff. Thank you!”

— Paul Markovich

“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.”

“Richard and crew have been great, for sure. As much as I look forward to having the job done and my house back in order, I really enjoyed having them around. You should feel really good about how they represent your company.”

— Jessica Dodson

“M.B. Jessee painted the exterior of my Spanish house over 9 years ago, and they did such an incredible job that they are still getting referrals from me today. The paint is holding up perfectly -- there is absolutely no peeling chipping or any other deterioration. I still remember that my final walk-through list consisted of items written on one side of a 3x5 index card (and I'm REAL picky about my house!) However, when Matt and I did that walk-through over HALF the items were no longer an issue, as his team had noticed them first and they had already been resolved.”

— JoAnn Newcomb

“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.”

— Mike C.
Livermore, CA

“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

“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

“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
Walnut Creek

“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

“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.”

“We just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the work of MB Jessee Painting and your employees. Everything turned out beautiful. Our foreman was great! He was punctual, professional, neat and very accommodating ... and went the extra mile. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family.”
