Jay Yennock, President & Operator
As the owner of the One Big Store in Solvay I work hard each and every day to consistently improve your experience at China Towne and constantly exceed your expectations. Since fully taking over the business from my parents, John & Rita Yennock, I have transformed China Towne from the once Iroquois China factory and showroom, kitchen cabinet manufacturing factory, and general store, to the One Big Furniture and Mattress store in Solvay. One aspect of running our company that I have always felt important is to keep our business active in the community including sponsoring fundraisers, events and donating to a variety of different not for profit organizations in Central New York.
I enjoy training for triathlons, including training in swimming, biking and running, and successfully have completed numerous triathlons as well as a full Ironman in Lake Placid. I am also an active member of my local Elk's Club and enjoy going with my family and friends to their hosted community events like pancake breakfasts and barbecues.
China Towne Furniture & Mattress has been a part of my family for generations. Every day, I look forward to the opportunity of my family’s work being part of your family’s comfort.
Morgan Marzano, Assistant Operations Manager
I am proud to represent the third generation of our local family owned and operated Furniture and Mattress store, the One Big Store in Solvay. I joined the China Towne team following the completion of my bachelor’s degree from Le Moyne College in 2012. Fun facts about me: I am an avid world traveler and have explored over 12 different countries and plan to visit the whole world; I also am a dedicated yoga practitioner and teacher; I am also a big fan of outdoor sports like hiking, kayaking, and snowboarding. Some of my favorite aspects of working in the family business here at China Towne is the opportunity it provides me to consistently learn new things, meet new people, and provide life changing services to better our local households and communities.
The area of the industry that interests me the most are the design aspects of creating a space that suits all different needs and lifestyles. From theatre room basements to formal traditional living rooms, I love finding just the right flow and balance of the room to make the space enjoyable, comfortable and beautiful for everyone.
I’m proud to carry on my family’s tradition of helping the greater Syracuse area get a better night’s sleep and actualize each customer’s home décor dreams.

One of my personal favorite new trends in the furniture industry is the look of reclaimed wood furniture. It gives me the feeling of simple, comfortable, country living. I love the idea it invokes of being in a cozy, relaxing setting like a farm or vineyard. The relaxed look and feel lets myself and guests in my home know that it’s all about the experience of living, rather than perfection of material things; and, most of all, I feel it lets “you be you!”

Dalcy Van Dee, Design Consultant & Sleep Specialist
I have over 10 years in Retail Management experience and am a new member of the China Towne Furniture & Mattress team. I would consider myself to be artistic; I love photography and I am a big animal lover.
One of my favorite aspects of the home goods industry is being able to “think outside the box” when it comes to my clients’ lifestyle and household needs. I think being able to repurpose a piece and use it for seemingly unintended purposes is fun and provides enhanced form and function. I am also a fan of antiques and traditional looks with a focus on the industrial vibe.
I’m committed to designing your home and filling your rooms with a reflection of your personal interests, needs and styles. What is most important to me is that we create a room that is "you" while functioning for your lifestyle needs; all the while having a good time and a few laughs!
Rebecca Vollero, Design Consultant & Sleep Specialist since 2012
I began my career in the furniture industry April 2012 at China Towne. I completed my A.A.S. degree in Interior Design in 2011. I have very strong and diverse interior design abilities. These have been acquired and refined through a wide variety of projects completed in my five semesters of interior design courses. One of my projects, a design for a restaurant dining space, was submitted by my professor to the NKBA 2011 student design competition and won 1st place. My designs have been chosen by Interior Design faculty for display in every student works show during my time at school. I utilize my professional education in interior design and experience in spatial sketching and planning to create the perfect space for all of my clients.
I have excellent AutoCAD, sketching, drawing-by-hand, and Google Sketch-up skills. I also have experience with Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Word, and PowerPoint. Furthermore, I have strong teamwork skills which I honed while working on group design projects during my time at school as well as while working with my team at China Towne Furniture & Mattress.
Besides my studies in interior design, my experiences include teaching art at the Central New York Chinese School since 2006, and teaching Chinese calligraphy at The Art Store in Syracuse. I can help you choose the perfect furniture, color scheme, and lighting design to make your spaces beautifully functional.
