Meet the Crew!



Art Stevens

I have lived in Vacaville all of my 54 years. I began working on cars with my dad when I was just a little boy. In 1978, I got my first job in a repair shop as a tire changer and performing brake jobs. I have been in auto repair for 30 years and have only worked at a couple of different shops. I did my best to learn from only the best technicians. I found my home with Jim Hansen Automotive. I have been here for 5 years and have no plans to leave. Jim and Joan care a lot about their customers and employees. Since I have known them for over 20 years, it is like working for family. I am a huge NASCAR fan and my favorite driver is Jimmy Johnson. I also like drag racing and am a huge fan of John Force.

Joan Johnson

I was born and raised in a small town in Ohio. I moved to California in 1982 to be close to my sister. I began my automotive career at a family owned and operated auto parts store in Fairfield in 1995. My hobbies include reading and hanging out with good friends. I married my husband in 2005 and we became the owners of Jim Hansen Automotive that same year.

Jim Johnson

I was born and raised in Vacaville. I started in the automotive industry in 1988. I went to work for Jim Hansen in 1994 at the 76 station on the corner of Elmira and Nut Tree. We moved from that location to our current location in 2003. My wife and I purchased the business in 2005. My hobbies are racing, fishing and most anything outdoors.

Joseph Masters

Hi. My name is Joseph Masters. I have loved cars since I was a little boy. I graduated from Wyo Tech in 2006. I enjoy working for Jim and Joan very much. They are the best bosses I have ever had. I enjoy spending time with my girlfriend and children. When I'm not spending time with my family, I love going to the lake and riding my motorcycle.
