Jessi Combs

I just saw this. Wow. She was on Extreme 4x4 with Ian and other stuff as well as driving KOH for Savvy. Correct me if I am wrong.

I'm not a mod, but probably belongs in General Discussion.

I was stunned to read that early this morning. I met & talked with her at the 2017 King of the Hammers, she was just plain nice to talk with and completely down to earth. You'd never know she was a genuine real-deal celebrity among the automotive types.

The second photo is one I took of her inside Savvy Racing's race car she drove in the 2017 King of the Hammers. RIP Jessi, you will be missed and your inspiration to others will be felt for a long time.

she's only about 5 years older than me. I watched her a lot on xtreme 4x4. I'm sad I'll no longer be able to see her on social media or elsewhere. Never met her in person myself.

I'm even more impressed by her now that I know she was like 3 weeks older than me...I always assumed she was like 5 years older to be doing what she was doing while I was in my early 20's sitting on my butt watching TV.

I live just a few miles from where they shoot extreme 4x4, and when she was on the show I would occasionally see her (and Ian) around town. We stayed at the same hotel during EJS 2018, and I saw her and the Savvy TJ there as well. I had a chance to say hello.

Every time I saw her she was smiling. Such a loss.
