Re: Jessi Combs RIP

Wow, RIP. She was a great wrench as well. Not the wanna beís like the other women on tv. She will be missed.

Tighten it till it strips and back it off a quarter turn.

Re: Jessi Combs RIP

Ugh. I'm the eternal pessimist and this thought flashed through my head a while back when I saw she was getting ready to do this. But even i didn't seriously consider it.

Re: Jessi Combs RIP

Thatís a shame. I remember she was on the 4x4 show that was part of TNNís Power Block. She came across as someone that knew her stuff rather than a poseur seeking the spotlight in order to become famous.

Re: Jessi Combs RIP

Wow, way too young. RIP.

I think the first show I saw her on was Overhaulin when they took on a project at Wyotech. Then she was on Mythbusters when the redhead was on maternity leave. She was a really skilled mechanic & fabricator. It was obvious she wasn't just there strictly as eye candy.

Sucks that she's gone, but at least she died doing something she loved. Godspeed.

Yeah, we're runnin' a little bit hot tonight,
I can barely see the road from the heat comin' off,
You know what I'm sayin',
Ahh, you reach down, put it between my legs 'n
ease the seat back,
She's runnin', I'm flyin',
Right behind in the rear view mirror now,
Got the fearin', power steerin',
Pistons poppin', ain't no stoppin' now,
PANAMA!

I always enjoyed her shows. I will miss her. This is sad news.

If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

Re: Jessi Combs RIP

This hit hard, it's sad to see someone that burned so bright leave the world. She was always smiling and inspired a lot of people with her life.

Can't deny the impression she made on the automotive and mechanic industry. She will be missed.

Re: Jessi Combs RIP

I'm glad she was able to go out doing what she loved doing. If you gotta go, go fast.

Wow. That’s a hard blow. She was well respected by all. Even my wife and daughters commented that she was “the one that always knew what she is talking about”.

Re: Jessi Combs RIP

Her and I had a couple of things in common...we're both from South Dakota and both went to WYO Tech...

Weird, but the news hit me off guard.

Rest in piece Jesse.
