Jennifer began her career in construction as a Regional Manager in Southern California for Lennar Homes, Inc. (a Fortune 500 Company) from 1998 to 2006, where she headed the Low-Voltage Installation Division. She also oversaw the roll-out and administration of online plan review as well as scheduling and billing software applications with thousands of subcontractor as well as corporate personnel.  Her efforts helped modernize Lennar’s field operations incorporating technology in Southern California in a notoriously slow to adapt industry.  In that and other leadership capacities Jennifer supported thousands of custom and turnkey homes being built yearly in the midst of the historic 2000’s housing boom with Lennar.

In 2006, Jennifer started Pennsylvania Coatings (PA Coatings) with her husband Christopher Reese to combine her broad and considerable construction and management experience with Chris’s extensive paint and coatings experience.  As CEO for Pennsylvania Coatings since its inception in 2006, she has driven the business and financial end of our organization.  Her ability to innovate and her wisdom has help push our company to exponential growth in 12 years and counting.  In addition, in 2018, Jennifer spearheaded the creation and opening of our grading division Pennsylvania Grading Company managed by 40+ year industry veteran Sonny Holland.  Jennifer studied Organizational Leadership at Azusa Pacific University.

Jennifer serves humbly as a leader in Centerpoint Church Murrieta women’s ministry, which serves many hundreds of women across the Temecula valley.  She is known for an attitude of servanthood for those in need, spreading the love of Jesus, and helping in any way she can, those who need it the most.  Jennifer served as committee Chairman for Younglife (non-profit) in the Murrieta Temecula Valley from 2011-2016, supporting youth outreach ministry in the area.  Thanks to Jennifer’s generous spirit, we can gladly claim to have donated a large portion of our revenue to ministry throughout the region.  You can be sure that when you contract Pennsylvania Coatings Inc. for your projects, a large portion of the revenue will be paid forward to spread the good news of Jesus and to help others.  Jen is the proud mom of her and Chris’s 4 year old son Robbie.  Pennsylvania Coatings Inc. is a proudly woman-owned business that consistently exceeds industry service and performance standards thanks to Jennifer’s leadership and faith.

  • “I have worked with Pennsylvania Coatings Inc. for many years and will continue to do so. Their organization is well put together, always professional and the work is of high quality. In construction we have daily if not hourly challenges, I have had very few with Penn Coatings but if I did they were always a problem solver and owned it even in times when we didn’t agree. They got it handled and we sorted it out later as to not delay the project. This is very valuable and a culture that cannot be taught it has to be natural. So between the professionalism, quality and culture, I will happily continue to use Pennsylvania Coatings in the future for all of my coatings needs.”

Regardless of the project type, location or size, PA Coatings have always been willing and able to help.

  • “I have had the pleasure of working with PA Coatings for over 7 years while I have been with multiple General Contractors and held multiple positions from Project Manager to Estimator. From one GC to the next, they have always provided exceptional services from the office staff to the field painters. No matter the job size, they provide the manpower as needed to get the job done and continue to execute quality work within the project’s budget and schedule. PA Coating’s office staff is very professional, but also offer a customer/client friendly approach that conveys that they truly care about the project’s needs. They are always just a phone call away and more than willing to help with any questions, concerns, or other ideas to make the project overall successful. No matter where my career in the Construction Market will take me, I know that I can trust and rely on PA Coatings to be the right company for the job!”
