Meet the Owner and Employees for Matthews Painting Company:
Jason Matthews – Owner
A little History: I grew up in Crete Nebraska. I helped my father work on antique cars most of my life, which developed my work ethic and eye for detail. I worked at Taco Johns in Crete, Nebraska while attending College of Hair Design in Lincoln, Nebraska. I performed tasks such as cashier, drive thru attendant, dish washer, and cook. I was considered the top candidate to manage a future store in Durango, Colorado. I learned customer service and management in a fast paced environment. Although this was a fast food restaurant, it also taught me a lot about work ethic and customer service which I apply in my painting business to this very day. I then worked at Walker Manufacturing in Seward, Nebraska as a spot welder and fork truck driver in the distribution department.
After factory life, I enlisted in the United States Army and served active duty between 1991 and 1997. I spent 2 years in Washington State at Fort Lewis working as a Unit Supply Specialist at a S-4 for 555th Combat Engineer Group. There I worked my way up from an E-1 private to an E-4 Specialist in under 2 years while attending Pierce College at night. The next 4 years I spent in Hohenfels Germany. I was a Unit Supply Specialist for an Observer Controller Team and managed a supply room for 1-4 Infantry Battalion while taking corespondence courses from Moody Bible Institute. I was promoted to Corporal, than Sergeant before my ETS in June, 1997. 2 of my 4 children were born in Amberg, Germany. Some of my awards in the Army included the National Defense Ribbon, Army Achievement Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Good Conduct Ribbon, Drivers Badge, Expert Marksman badge, and Expert Grenade Badge. I was 1 of 6 soldiers chosen from our battalion who qualified physical fitness, Army Correspondence Courses, and College to pursue Special Forces. I declined, choosing rather to be with my family full time
I started my painting company as a 1-man operation in 1998, and worked my way up into the high-end residential and commercial painting market. Since then, the painting company has grown, but our commitment to quality remains the same. I mainly estimate about 300 homes and businesses a year and advertise the business at this point. I also work along side my employees from time to time training them to provide the highest quality and customer service that Matthews’ Painting Company was founded on. We complete around 120 homes and businesses every year. I am very thankful for our employees, they are the ones that make it all happen.
I have a beautiful wife who teaches pre-school in the mornings and owns her own tutoring business called Heart of Learning, LLC. She is an amazing organizer and is very supportive and understanding with my long days of being a business owner. We enjoy time on the lake, great food and just being together.
I also have 4 amazing children a precious 3 year old grandson who calls me Papa and loves bending and breaking my reading and sun glasses. Thankfully I do not spend over $10.00 for either. I also have a 11 month grandaughter named Aurora who loves playing with my beard and spitting up all over me.
Diane – Office Manager
I am married to Tom and we have two grown married sons. We have been married over 50 years. We also have five grandchildren. Three live in Warsaw and two are in Holland, MI. I worked several years for Grace College & Theological Seminary, Zimmer, and The Village at Winona before securing my job at Matthews’ Painting Co. We also owned Winona Woods in The Village at Winona for 13 years where Tom was the woodworker. I like talking to our customers and I have enjoyed getting to know the team of Matthews’ Painting Company. I enjoy working with this very special crew.
Tonya – Office Assistant
I have always lived in the area and if you have ever eaten at Gropps/Pete’s Fabulous Fish in Syracuse, chances are I was your hostess. I worked there for many years.
My husband and I will soon celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary and we have three extremely active children. I love watching them do well at sports and I try hard to keep up with their busy schedules.
I am proud to be part of such a professional painting company and look forward to many years with Matthews’ Painting Company.
Kate – Interior Painting Foreman
Hi! I have the pleasure of working for Matthews' Painting Company this year. I am an artist at heart and enjoy expressing that through painting! This isn't my first rodeo with Matthews. With life changing events, I am happy to say I'm back and working for such a well-respected painting company.
This fall I plan to attend school for imaging sciences. I will graduate in three years and hope to find a career shortly after. Until then, I will be working for Matthews Painting to get me through school. I have a love for painting and will always be doing it, even if it becomes a hobby! I enjoy working with Matthews' Painting because they work with my schedule. It is nice to have vacation time as well. Overall they are very flexible and I love that.
Jordan -Painter/Pressure Washing Crew Leader
I work at Matthews' Painting Company each summer, I love having a scheduled work week and not working part-time so I can spend time with my family or embarking on another adventure. I'm sporadic and will be more than happy to try my hand out at something new. Trying foreign things to enjoy in life such as mountain biking on the trails at Winona or tearing up the wake on lake Wawasee are the moments I live for.
Charlie – Interior and Exterior Painting and Pressure Washing Foreman
Hi! I’m Charlie, this is my second time to work for Matthews' Painting Company. The first time was for seven years and I’m grateful to be back after two years away. I’m a simple guy, who enjoys his family, and although life has a way of keeping us busy, I try to find time to enjoy Nebraska Cornhusker sports, golf and almost any outdoor activity when available and church. Painting has been a part of my life since childhood and every day I still learn something new about it as things change in this industry. I like the team atmosphere and youth movement of Matthews' Painting. I hope that we leave an impact on you, our customers, for years to come.
Kelsey – Interior and Exterior Painting Crewleader
I was born in Indiana but raised in Virginia, as my father was in the Navy much of my childhood. We moved back to Indiana just before my freshman year in high school. I graduated from Wawasee and went straight to college then met my late husband and became a stay at home mom a few years later. I never realized how much I loved and missed this community until I moved back in 2015. If you're from the area you will often see me out and about with my mom, who is a teacher at Wawasee Middle School, selling my Goat's Milk Soaps at local events and markets, or at Vineyard Church. Your kids are likely to recognize me as well, as I was a substitute for Wawasee Schools for grades K-12. For as long as I can remember I have always had an interest in painting, whether it was on paper, canvas, or walls. I am very excited to join the Matthews' Painting team and it is an honor and privilege to work on your homes/projects.
Dayton – Painter’s Apprentice
Hi! My name is Dayton and I have the privilege to work at Matthews' Painting over the summer. I just graduated form Warsaw High School, and plan on attending Indiana Wesleyan University in the fall to study Exercise Science. My dream is to further that education to become a physical therapist someday. I also love to play basketball, and will be playing on the women's team at IWU this following school year. I have always been creative and good at working with my hands, and am excited to see what I can learn here at Matthews'!
Christy – Painter’s Apprentice
I am a mother of three. I stay very busy with two boys in football and BMX racing and a 9 mo. old that is discovering something new every day. Growing up I enjoyed painting, construction and renovations as my father owned a construction business. I was a caregiver for 7 years but with my life changing direction I found myself joining the team at Matthews' Painting Co. Although I would say that I didn't join a team but a growing family. Everyone here is unique and brings their own link to the family chain of Matthews' Painting Co.
Hey, my name is Matt. I am currently new to the team here at Matthews’ Painting. I like to sketch comic and cartoon characters, as well as painting, designing, and tinkering with tools. I’m creative on the spot with new ideas and great at organizing and decorating. I have a wife of one year this coming April and two kitty cats. I hope to bring my artistic skills to Matthews’ Painting and help the company.
