We're hiring experienced painters!


Meet Our Team

Matt Jessee


Matt’s initial journey as a professional painter began with a relentless commitment to two things: education and delivering a high-quality product that he could be proud of. This education was launched when he joined the Painter’s Union and had access to training from old-school, expert craftsmen. He also studied business, improving himself in every way he could on his own time.

While working as a painter, Matt built a clientele through sidework of his own. After his apprenticeship was complete, he was able to step out into full-time painting work, becoming licensed in 1995. His team was small, but he was dedicated to broadening both his knowledge and the scope of his services.

Today Matt is thrilled to be able to offer real, growing, career-oriented opportunities to his team. He also loves being able to give back to the community, encouraging and reinvesting in local charities and organizations. His eye is on the future as well as he plans for what the next chapters in the MB Jessee story hold.

When he takes a break from work, Matt is likely spending time with his wife and two kids. They all love the outdoors, enjoying skateboarding, mountain biking, backpacking, and snowboarding in the Tahoe area.

Monica Alcala

Resource Coordinator

Monica is an enthusiastic, passionate California native, hailing from Tracy. We (and our clients!) love her energy and commitment to creating a fantastic customer service experience, start to finish.

Outside of work, Monica enjoy spending time with friends, family, listening to live music, and dancing.

Shirin Khosravi

Business Manager

Shirin is a detail-oriented, time management expert, and puts her analytical skills to work every day in our office. We appreciate her hard work and attention to detail!

Shirin is also a lover of the great outdoors - on her days off you’ll often find her hiking, enjoying the natural beauty in the surrounding Bay Area. She also plays the violin!

Vicente Verduzco

Field Manager

Vicente has been with us since 2003, and brings a high level of expertise, knowledge, and honesty to the table. Beyond his own abilities, however, he also is a gifted teacher. He cultivates and builds skills into newer members of the team, helping them become the best painters possible.

Vicente enjoys a wide variety of activities outside of work. Some days he may be bowfishing, others he might be training his dog, kayaking, or hunting. Or, best of all, he might just be relaxing with his family.

Albino Guzman

Production Manager

Albino Guzman is our Production Manager at MB Jessee. Originally from Southern California, Albino moved with his family to the East Bay in 1999. Albino began as an apprentice, and has climbed the ladder of success, working his way up to a foreman. He took over as our Production Manager in the fall of 2017. He has now been working at MB Jessee for 5 years. Albino enjoys spending time with his family and friends. Albino's best part of his job is being able to deliver a professional performance, and showing through the work process what professionalism means. His major strengths are his communication and learning skills, attention to detail, patience, and experience.

Cesar Perez

Sales Representative

Cesar has been a member of our team for many years, and has filled various positions (including time spent as a Crew Leader). We are excited to now have Cesar as a Sales Representative, drawing on his extensive experience and focus on customer satisfaction to help guide our clients through every stage of the painting process.

Cesar is first and foremost a family man, enjoying nothing more than spending time with his wife and kids. When he does find time for himself after work and on the weekends, he loves playing baseball and soccer, and restoring classic cars (he recently finished a stunning 1969 Chevy pickup!).

Robert Dragony

Sales Representative

Robert may be familiar with the sales aspect of the painting industry, but he also has a long history of actual trade experience to draw from. In fact, he started painting with his older brother when he was just fourteen years old, and his brothers to this day are all contractors. This familiarity with each part of the process allows him to see potential jobs from every perspective, providing a unique depth of insight.

Outside of work, Robert enjoys everything from grilling the perfect steak to diving into philosophical discussions with good friends. Reading, biking, and hiking over Half Moon Bay are a few favorites too.

Pedro Torres

Crew Leader

Pedro is an organized, efficient leader, and thrives on having a clear plan of completion for every job site. Communication is certainly one of his strengths, both within our team and with clients, ensuring that everyone involved has a clear understanding of each step and stage.

Pedro is also a family man, and loves nothing more than playing with his kids at the park, or camping together as a break from the normal routine.

Gustavo Urrutia


Gustavo brings a unique assortment of positive attributes to the table. He’s both a motivator and competitive, detail-oriented but loves a fresh challenge, and above all he is focused on the experience we deliver to our clients. This has made him a strong foreman and leader.

His artistic nature shines at work, but it’s certainly obvious at home as well. Gustavo is passionate about music, and plays the saxophone, drums, piano, guitar, and he sings. Multi-talented? We’d say so!

Abraham Antunez


Abraham is an experienced painter, and this experience has equipped him with unique problem-solving skills. He has a knack for removing any roadblocks, seeing a quality project through to the last stroke. This skill might also be due to the fact that Abraham is a lifelong learner, and is always seeking new ways to better himself and strengthen his craft.

When his brush is hung up for the day, he enjoys relaxing and watching baseball (it’s a well-deserved break!).
