To whom it may concern,
It is indeed my pleasure to give a professional recommendation to Jay Malise of J.P. Jay Associates for his exceptional skill in meeting the redesign needs of the Hershey Public Library, recently.
The library staff, board of directors, and a space designer worked together to create a plan for the area to be changed. In keeping with our concepts, Jay made every effort to meet our demands, both creatively and practically. The challenges faced during this project included a limited budget, established design elements, color matching, and space efficiency. In addition, when our timeline for completion was imminent, Jay made sure that we had our furniture delivered, as planned.
As the elements took shape and became reality, Jay was always available by phone or e-mail to answer every question and /or to offer a new solution. I and my staff credit Jay Malise and his colleagues at J.P. Jay Associates with the success of this project which has received numerous accolades for its continuity, warmth, and comfort.
We look forward to our next project, now in the concept stage, to include Jay Malise’s expertise once again.
