Joe Kelly - Owner of JK Paint & Contracting

Joe Kelly


Hi, My name is Joe Kelly. I am a native Oregonian, an outdoor enthusiast, and I love to snowboard. On weekends you’ll find me exploring the great outdoors with good friends and my 2 huskies.

In 2013, after several years of working as a professional painter, I took a leap of faith and decided to open my own business, JK Paint & Contracting. I started the business with some simple core values: be the friendliest and most honest painters around, use high-quality paints and paint products, and be the easiest Painting contractors to work with by providing clear and friendly communications and a detailed scope of work. Adhering to this simple philosophy has earned JK Paint & Contracting a 5-star reputation as a trusted painting contractor in the Portland-Metropolitan area. JK Paint & Contracting continues to grow each year and employs multiple crews and office staff to support clients with their largest and smallest residential and commercial painting needs. Everyone on the JK Paint team understands there is nothing more valuable to their future and the future of JK Paint & Contracting than completing a project and having happy customers that will feel confident referring JK Paint & Contracting to their family and friends.

Isabel Kelly

Office Manager

Hi, my name is Isabel Kelly. I started working for JK Paint & Contracting in 2017. My role as General Manager is to oversee all operations at JK Paint from marketing, sales, and final production to ensure client satisfaction. I really enjoy being there for the team and the opportunity to continue to learn more about business, but also the opportunity to watch my coworkers grow, learn, and succeed. I have heard many people say it is hard to work with family, but for me working with all three of my siblings has brought us even closer together. When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, walking my dogs at Champoeg State Park, visiting central Oregon, and reading a good book.
