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. I am an ASE Master Technician.

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.
