Jessi Combs Death – Jessi Combs Accident
Jessi died on August 27, 2019 in a fatal crash while attempting to beat her own land-speed record in a jet-powered vehicle on the dry lake bed of the Alvord Desert in southeast Oregon.
In 2013, Jessi Combs broke the four-wheeled women’s land speed record at a speed of nearly 393 mph in her 52,000-horsepower, 56-foot-long, North American Eagle Supersonic Speed Challenger — a reconfigured F-104 jet — on the 13-mile course. Then, in 2016, Combs broke 440 mph and was dubbed the fastest woman on four wheels.
In 2018, Combs made a 483.227 mph “shakedown run” at Alvord, the team said, but a hydraulic bay door lock mechanism broke, letting the door open, and it was immediately torn away, with parts entering an engine inlet, ending the test session.

The details of the crash have not been released at this time.

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.

This Italy trip has been so good for the soul. There’s a reason why the largest cities in the world have parks, trees, and pockets of nature woven throughout their busy streets. Spending time in a natural setting can have a positive impact on a person’s sense of well-being. Aside from city parks, the more in-depth practice of “forest bathing” has been found to lower blood pressure, heart rates, and levels of harmful hormones — like cortisol, which your body produces when stressed. This can help put you in a more #calm and relaxed state. Tell me you’re getting #outside this weekend?!?! #thankyou @mercedesbenzusa for taking me on another #epic #adventure! #getoutsideandplay #italy
