    Jessi's family issued the following statement:

    "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.Surrounded by her family and friends at the time of her passing, Jessi lived fearlessly and her legacy lives on in the countless lives she touched.Jessi is known for her hosting work on television series including “All Girls Garage”, “Overhaulin’ “, Extreme 4x4 and Autoblog’s “The List."

    The thing I liked about her was that she genuinely seemed to enjoy all things powered and wasn’t a poser.
    Way to soon!

    According to Autoblog, "the Harney County Sheriff’s Office found that Combs, attempting to break her own land-speed record, was traveling at speeds reaching 550 miles per hour when a “mechanical failure of the front wheel, most likely caused from striking an object on the desert,” led to the crash.

    Known as “The fastest woman on four wheels,” Combs died in August while trying to break her own 398 mph land-speed record in a dry lake bed in an Oregon desert. The mechanical failure “led to the front wheel assembly collapsing,” according to the report.

    Combs was killed by blunt force trauma to the head before the vehicle was engulfed in flames. She was 39 years old."
