RIP.
I read in a different article that she was 39. I thought she was pretty cool in mythbusters. Didn't know about the other stuff she did.

She was good on the Extreme 4x4 too. I followed her on facebook and she was pretty interesting. The "car" she died in was a converted F-104 Starfighter fighter jet.

She was on a couple car shows including one about building trucks, was big into just about anything with an engine. Was a fabricator on Mythbusters for awhile.

Courtney Hansen hosted Power Block, which was four or five shows. Combs was a regular on Extreme 4x4.

Sad to see. But, at least she went out doing what she loved. That's more than most of us will accomplish.

If it's not broken Don't Fix It!
Jessi Combs was also a host on All Girls Garage for a while. Sad to hear this had happened.

Yeah, she filled in for Kari Byron for a while after Kari had her baby.





I kind of want to see what shape the car ended up in.

I bet it was in a bunch of shapes. Jet fighters usually don’t crash well in loss of control type situations.

A real bummer. She was a local from this area and quite a few of my wheeling buddies knew her personally - I never met her but she was definitely a rock star in her world. RIP.
