Mythbusters star Jessi Combs tragically lost her life and many people are mourning her passing, including her boyfriend, Terry Madden. The man, who is also a driver just like she was, took to social media to pay tribute to Jessi.
Terry posted a throwback pic featuring the two of them dressed as mimes for an event, and, alongside it, he wrote a heartbreaking message.
‘Not sure how to cope. I miss my @thejessicombs so bad…. for me, it’s a constant to be in our favorites file on the phone looking at our pictures.. I decided to start sharing stories that go with these [pictures] every morning. This was the greatest night of my life, we had more fun than I knew it was possible to have’
He went on to recall how they ‘Didn’t drink at all and on the greatest, happiness high ever, we laughed, loved and, never said a word. Halloween last year @semashow in Vegas. We made a bet before leaving our room on who talked first. For five hours we never said a word, and we still knew exactly what the other was thinking, the connection was amazing.’

Not sure how to cope. I miss my @thejessicombs so bad…. Its a constant for me to be in our favorites file on my phone looking at our pictures.. I decided this morning to start sharing the stories that go with these every morning. . This was the single greatest night of my life, we had more fun than I knew, it was possible to have. Didn’t drink a drop and on the greatest pure happiness high ever, we laughed we loved and we never said a word. . Halloween last year @semashow in Vegas. We made a bet before leaving the room on who talked first. For 5 hours we never said a word, and we knew exactly what the other was thinking, the connection was so amazing. We saw all of our friends and fans and acted out together as the perfect team as if we had rehearsed it our whole life – knowing exactly what the other was thinking to talk with people. It was that night and the next morning we laid and talked and realized how truly connected we were and how amazing it was we knew what the other was thinking at most times. . There is still a really upset cab driver out there someplace that got to see the greatest 5 min Charade of us acting out west gate hotel on the side walk because we wouldn’t talk – held character the entire night… he was pissed and we laughed until our cheeks hurt!!! . . #jessiandterry #doitforjessi #bestnightofmylife #mimes #love
Terry also mentioned how they were the perfect team that night and enjoyed their time with friends and fans.
It was like they’d rehearsed it all. Then, they spent the night and morning just laying down and talking, realizing how deeply connected they were, as if they were able to read each other’s thoughts.

Remember that time Day 6 —- so first I have to explain #rememberthattime we used to always talk about our memories and #rockingchairstories that we would sit around at nursing home and say ”remember that time” and everyone would listen because we would have the best stories… Then it became a joke that right in the middle of something rad one of us would say remember that time noting that we were in middle of something epic and memorable. . . So this one “the NOT so Grand Canyon” we were on a road trip rolling thru Albuquerque one night and I asked her how far she wanted to go she said she wanted to watch the sun rise over the Grand Canyon as she did many times as a kid. We pulled into the Grand Canyon 3am ish around the gate and snuck into the camping. We were in chase 5 – threw up the rooftop tent and got ready for bed. We had laid there 3-4 minutes when she asked how far you think we are from it? I opened my maps and saw a little blue line about 3/4 mile away – I said it’s just over there… she says you sure? And Mr. confident me says yah of course see river – river equals canyon. She jumps up bails out of tent and says let’s go ? Me : now ? Her: duh lol and runs off into dark – I’m trying to throw my pants on take off after her into the trees. We walk by cell phone light 3/4 mile thru the trees to my blue line – all the while her asking if I’m sure? And me in my best military nav voice saying “babe I got this” . About this time we walk right up to the rim in the dark of the NOT SO GRAND CANYON about 2’ deep 2’ wide ditch with a small stream running thru it 😂. I’m embarrassed bad – zoom map out and realize giant blue river line opposite direction from camp and this is tiny stream… she laughed and laughed and we laid on ground and watched the stars and fell asleep on top of my jacket beside the not so Grand Canyon. We woke up just before sunrise and ran back to truck, grabbed a blanket she was freezing and on to the real Grand Canyon, watched the sunrise and hauled ass….. @thejessicombs was so magic at turning a mistake into a possibility ! . . #notsograndcanyon #grandcanyon #rememberthattime #doitforjessi #terryandjessi #myjessi #missyoubabe
Jessi’s boyfriend also had a funny story from that night to share.
Apparently, they kept up the miming even when they needed to take a cab.
The driver was pretty pissed because of the 5 minutes of them using charades to describe west gate hotel; where they needed to go.
The two of them, however, ‘laughed until [their] cheeks hurt!!!’
Jessi passed away in a ‘horrific accident.‘ She was trying to break her land speed personal record in a jet car.
