Jessi Combs Will Be Remembered As A Role Model For Young Girls And For Her Infectious Smile

36 year old television personality Jessi Combs tragically died yesterday in Oregon’s Alvord Desert trying to break her own land speed record.  Jessi Combs was known as the “fastest woman on four wheels”, and was known for co-hosting ‘Xtreme 4×4’ on Spike TV, as well as for working on ‘All Girls Garage’, ‘Myth Busters’, and ‘Overhaulin.’  Her family however remembers her for her bright smile and the impact she has had on young girls.

Jessi was attempting to break a land speed record she had previously set at 398 miles per hour in 2013.  She was using the same Supersonic Speed Challenger she used to set the previous record when she crashed in the Alvord Desert in Oregon on August 27th, 2019.  The vehicle she was driving was jet powered and had 52,000 horsepower.

Combs’ boyfriend Terry Madden encouraged people in a recent Instagram post not to donate to anything in her name (as some donation pages may be fraudulent) and to rely on information and statements from Combs’ family for truthful information regarding the incident.

So I don’t know how to say any of this but it all needs said. I have never loved or been loved by anyone as much as this amazing woman @thejessicombs she was truly my unicorn and I enjoyed every single minute that I had with her. She was the most amazing spirit that I have ever or will ever know. Unfortunately we lost her yesterday in a horrific accident, I was the first one there and trust me we did everything humanly possible to save her!! I’m not ok, but she is right here keeping my going-I made her a promise that if this didn’t go well that I would make sure and do good with it, please help me with that, you are all going to see things on news please believe non of them.. we the family have drafted a release and it will come out today with more proper info, but I was just woke up by the media tracking me down and I need everyone of her true friends to do what she would want “take a deep breath, relax” and do good things with this. Please donate to nothing, I know there will be people try, we are finishing the documentary as she wished and the world will know the truth and her foundation will use those funds to do amazing things in this world and make her legacy live on properly. In the coming days her family and I will get the proper channels put together that you can then donate to that foundation but until you hear it from me wait please-I don’t want some asshole profiting off this (all ready had one try to sell us a video)… . . Love you all and thank you all for being such amazing friends to her, she dedicated her life to helping support others dreams and I promise I will continue that.

More Than The Fastest Woman On Four Wheels

Combs was more than a TV personality and racer, she was a skilled fabricator, had designed a line of women’s welding gear, was part of the American Welding Society, and a role model for young girls and women.

Jessi’s family issued a statement, part of which says, “Jessi was known for her bright smile, positivity, and tenacious pursuit of the fulfillment of her dreams. Her drive was infectious, and she served as a role model for young Girls, and Women around the world. People that loved her and followed her became family, all bonded together by adventure and passion. Her fans adored her, and she lived to inspire them. Jessi’s most notable dream was to become the fastest woman on Earth, a dream she had been chasing since 2012. Combs was one of the rare dreamers with the bravery to turn those possibilities into reality, and she left this earth driving faster than any other woman in history.”
