Lifecycle
Van Haasteren grew up in Schiedam where he learned to be a house painter at the Craft School. After this he went to the Academy of Visual Arts in Rotterdam, where he followed the Publicity & Advertising course on the advice of his father. After his education he worked as an assistant to Loek van Delden on the comic Smidje Verholen. From 1962 to 1966 he worked at the Toonder Studios, initially in the cartoon department. From 1963 he worked as a cartoonist mainly on the comics Kappie, Tom Poes and Hiawatha. In 1966 van Haasteren moved for a short time to the studios of Joop Geesink, where he worked on the series Rick de Kikker. After this he worked as a freelancer for, among others, Toonder. From then on, however, his own work was in the foreground. With screenwriter Patty Klein, with whom he would often collaborate, he made the strip Bartje en Opa. The collaboration was continued with, among others, Sjaak and Oom George for KRO Studio and Erik en Opa, a new version of Bartje and Opa that appeared in Jippo from 1975.

Comics
From 1972 he drew Baron van Tast for Pep, with screenplays by Renée van Utteren, Lo Hartog van Banda, Frits van der Heide and Patty Klein. The gag strip Voortvluchtig also appeared in Pep. In Donald Duck Ketelbinkie appeared, written by Wim Meuldijk, and Ome Arie. From 1974, after a script by Philip Sohier, he drew the strip Tinus Trotyl for Sjors, which was continued in Eppo from 1975, for which he also drew De Stuntels together with Toon van Driel. In Eppo To Be Continued he published the comic Brian and the brainbox, written by David Ireland. He also published many separate comics in De Vrije Balloen, using the pseudonyms Harold Hurry and Jean Pion, among others. He has drawn a large number of jigsaw puzzles for game manufacturer Jumbo.

In recent years, Van Haasteren, together with Rob Derks and Dick Heins, has mainly focused on the large Jumbo puzzle prints on which all kinds of things happen. A bit of a puzzler immediately looks for the shark fin, the artist's trademark.

Awards
In 2006 Jan van Haasteren was awarded the Bulletje en Boonestaak Scale by Het Stripschap. On April 26, 2013, he was made a Knight in the Order of Orange-Nassau.
