Past History

The feisty, mysterious Jana Hawkes arrived in Genoa City in October 2006. A traveler of sorts, she lived in her motor home by the lake and spent most of her free time working for Kevin Fisher at the Crimson Lights Coffeehouse. Proving to be a loyal and efficient employee, Jana was soon promoted to manager.

Although warned by many of Kevin's dirty past, Jana became fond of her boss and eventually the two struck up a relationship. It would only be a matter of time before they bit the bullet and moved in together sharing an apartment in one of Genoa City's biggest high-rise complexes.

Jana often cannot contain her excitement when something interests her. Having a knowledgeable background in the art world, Jana surprised Katherine Chancellor on her first visit to the estate when she was able to name off a few of Katherine's antiques! After finding Victoria Newman Carlton's purse in a dumpster outside of the coffeehouse, during its return, Jana found that she and Victoria had a lot of fascinating art stories to share.

Jana was revealed to have been the killer of Carmen Mesta, and went to prison. Since she had murdered Carmen while under the influence of a brain tumor, however, she got out soon with the help of her fiance, Kevin and his attorney brother, Michael Baldwin.

Jana and Kevin were married in an Ashram in California and ran the coffeeshop together, where Jana regularly doled out advice to the lovelorn.

Jana was taken prisoner by Sheila's sister, Sara, and her children, Daisy and Ryder, and held captive in an abandoned zoo. She began to experience headaches again. Lauren was also kidnapped. After they were rescued, Jana was admitted to the hospital and lost her emotions. She couldn't remember loving Kevin, and wound up having an affair with Ryder while trying to help him get out of jail.

Jana went on the run with Ryder, but returned and wanted to reconcile with Kevin, who had fallen in love with Chloe. Kevin divorced Jana and she plotted to get him back. Jana became increasingly unhinged as she eventually devised a plan to win Kevin back by finding his niece, Daisy's child. When she learned that Billy and Vikki's adopted daughter, Lucy, was that child, she kidnapped her and told Kevin they would start their own family. Kevin convinced her to let the child go, but Jana kept Kevin with her at gunpoint and locked him in a closet, saying she had to 'break' him to get him to fall back in love with her.
