Ten Years in Ashland for Ashland Appliance & Mattress
My how time flies when you don’t have to worry about driving to Medford to buy appliances and mattresses. It was a mere ten years ago (September 2010) that Joel and Jenny Jessee opened Ashland Appliance & Mattress at 1401 Siskiyou Blvd (right above Papa Murphy’s). Joel has deep roots in the valley.
“I have lived in Southern Oregon since I was three years old,” he said. “My entire family moved here in 1980 from Orange County. I met my wife in 1999 In Portland after living in the Dominican Republic for two years from 1996-1998. We came to Ashland to start our business because my grandpa and grandma were friends with Bill and Millie, who owned Courtesy Appliance.”
Owning and operating appliance stores runs in the Jessee family.
“I am third generation appliance sales and service,” Joel said. “My grandpa started his appliance business in 1955. In 1980 we started a parts warehouse where we sell to about 160 appliance technicians. In 1984 my dad started his own appliance business in Grants Pass. I wanted my own business to better provide for my family, and that’s what motivated me.”
Ashland Appli-ance & Mattress offers a wide variety of appliances, from dishwashers and refrigerators to stoves, washers, dryers, freezers and more. They demonstrate all of the top-name brands and provide delivery. You can have it in your house and installed the same or next day.
“We are appliance and mattress retailers, and we are specialists in the field,” Joel said. “We do our own service and provide professional installs. And we do our best to hire student athletes at SOU to help them pay for school. We strive for excellent customer service and expertise, all at a competitive price. We go to customers’ homes and repair their appliances if anything should happen (hopefully under warranty). Our technician has many years of experience and is very knowledgeable.”
The store specializes in organic and natural mattresses. They carry most of the top brands, including the revolutionary Smartlife mattress by King Koil. Smartlife’s patented Body Sensing Technology automatically adjusts to each individual’s unique body shape, height and weight. It continuously monitors and adjusts to the individual’s sleep position to ensure proper support and pressure relief for the perfect night’s rest.
“We’d like to thank our amazing community in abiding to the principal of buying and supporting local,” Joel said. “Thank you from me and my family as we celebrate ten years in Ashland.”
