Jessi Combs Bio
Jessi Combs (Jessica Combs) was a professional American racer, a manufacturer of television and metal. She's a former Mythbusters cast member. Jessie died in an attempted land speed record in the Alvord Desert, Oregon, on August 27, 2019. After reaching a velocity of 398 miles per hour in her jet-powered North American Eagle Supersonic Speed Challenger, she retained the title of "fastest lady on four wheels."
Her first professional task was when she was recruited at the Specialty Equipment Marketing Association (SEMA) demonstrate by the WyoTech marketing department together with another student to construct a vehicle from the ground up in six months.
She hosted the Xtreme 4 TV show, part of the Powerblock, which left in 2008 after a widely publicized accident for four years.
Jessie Combs Education
Combs graduated from Stevens High School in 1998. She later entered the Collision & Refinishing Core Program at WyoTech, as well as the Street Rod Fabrication and Custom Fabrication and High Performance Powertrain programs at the top of her class in 2004.
Jessi Combs Age
Jessie was born in Rapid City, South Dakota, on July 27, 1980, at the age of 39.
Jessi Combs Family
Jessie was Jamie Combs' and Nina Darrington's daughter. When she was 2 years old, her family shifted from Rockerville to Piedmont. She had three siblings, Kelly Combs, Austin Darrington, Danielle Theis, and Rebeka Hall and Arielle Hall, two step-siblings. Her grandmother was Nina DeBow, a Stanley Steamers jazz pianist.
Jessie Combs Boyfriend
Jessie was a hers crew member in a partnership with Terry Madden. He's been a co-driver for Ultra 4, Ultra 4 Europe, and Dirt Riot for the last 4 Seasons for Levi Shirley.
Jessi Combs Jet Car
It was an idea to take a jet fighter and transform it into the fastest racing machine in history, according to a description of the vehicle that Combs was driving when she crashed. It was really nothing more than a few boys in a garage when all this began, scraping paint and shaping metal sheets. Every phase of placing together the car has made the dream a little more real. We are now moving toward the ultimate objective of supersonics.
It may seem a little crazy to walk directly into the line of fire... those who are willing, are those who achieve great things. .— Jessi Combs (@TheJessiCombs) August 24, 2019
People say I’m crazy. I say thank you ;)

Jessie Combs Cause Of Death
The vehicle of The Blast Comb did not stop correctly, causing the car to move beyond the river bed's safety and collapse violently. Sources disclosed that the car was traveling at a high velocity and at the end of the run it failed to stop. The vehicle was fitted with a number of safety systems to assist lower velocity so that the car could come to an eventual stop, but something was wrong. They also said the accident was "equal to an aircraft crash" because the vehicle did not slow down.

Barely knew her, rode with her a few times. She was super kind, a total goofball, and obviously a complete, fucking badass. https://t.co/a5LB3y80YU
Picturing friends #JessiCombs, #JimDunne and #DaveyJohnson mid-tipple somewhere, laughing over great food and hatching a grand, gloriously cockamamie scheme on wheels.
Happy to join the party, but hopefully not soon. Don't invite anyone else we know for a while, ok?
Miss you. pic.twitter.com/2bw0C35u8n

RIP @thejessicombs What a RAD CHICK! ・・・ Yesterday, while attempting to beat her own land speed record, the 52,000 horsepower jet-powered car driven by racer, fabricator, and television personality Jessi Combs crashed in the Alvord Desert in Oregon, killing her, as local news reports. Combs was 36 years old and held the title of “fastest woman on four wheels” after breaking 398 mph in that same North American Eagle Supersonic Speed Challenger in 2013. Combs was attempting to beat her previous record, and had attempted it as recently as last year, when she managed a 483.227 mph shakedown run before mechanical problems ended the attempt, as noted on the team’s bio page for Jessi. #ripjessicombs #jessicombs
I’m so so sad, Jessi Combs has been killed in a crash. She was a brilliant & too-notch builder, engineer, driver, fabricator, and science communicator, & strove everyday to encourage others by her prodigious example. She was also a colleague, and we are lesser for her absence.— Adam Savage (@donttrythis) August 28, 2019
