Meet The Owner
“A Passion for Service”
When you talk to Joe Fournier, the thread that runs through the conversation is service: service to his country, service to his clients and service to his community. Joe believes that we are all equal, we are all important and we all deserve to be treated with respect and dignity, no matter what our station in life.
Even as a child Joe loved to help. His motto could be: “If I can help I will. If I can find a way to go above and beyond what’s required, that’s what I’ll do.” His greatest joy comes in seeing the smile on the face of someone he helped, and knowing that he made a difference.
Joe is a decorated veteran: he was awarded the Bronze Star for service in Iraq. His experience there showed him how fleeting life can be, how quickly everything can change – and how important it is, as an individual, to always do the right thing.
Previously he served in Korea, Germany, Poland, Alaska, Kuwait, other international locations and throughout the U.S. However, he was no stranger to foreign countries, having grown up in a military family that was frequently deployed to Europe and various locations around the US.
As a child and young adult, cars, engines, and airplanes fascinated him. It’s no wonder that, after retiring from the military, he started a business where he can be around cars all day long. His mobile bumper and headlight repair business brings quick service to clients in their homes or workplaces, without disrupting their days and at prices well below those of body shops.
Joe and his wife live in Santa Barbara. Joe volunteers with the American Cancer Society; he is a member of the Goleta Chamber of Commerce and a volunteer at the annual Lemon Festival. He volunteers with the Wounded Warrior Project, which offers support for veterans facing challenges when they return from war.
He and his wife enjoy the pleasures of the Santa Barbara lifestyle: hiking, biking, swimming and participating in the many local festivals. They have five children and two grandchildren.
