Jessi Combs was born in the Black Hills of Rapid City, SD. With a lifelong desire to become a race car driver, this fearless young lady found a love for speed and its machines at a very young age. Her parents loved to explore everything around them and gave her a solid appreciation for off-roading as well as racing in many forms. In addition to her love for speed, Jessi is artistic and spends as much time as she can creating with her own hands. She loves metal working and leather craft and is skilled in both. Jessi is an independent and adventurous spirit, boasting, “I will try everything at least twice... I wouldn’t want to be jaded by the first attempt!” Her sense of adventure led her to board sports, travel, photography, and sky diving.

Career highlights:

  • Turned down a full scholarship to a prominent interior design school, to pursue a career in snowboarding.
  • Attended WyoTech where she studied Collision/Refinishing, Chassis Fabrication, Street Rod Fabrication, and Trim/Upholstery, graduating with a degree in Custom Automotive Fabrication.
  • Built a car from the ground up in six months to debut at the Specialty Equipment Marketing Association’s (SEMA) show. The car was auctioned for charity and Jessi hasn’t looked back since.
  • Television appearance on Overhaulin’ as a guest fabricator and was soon hired as the co-host of Xtreme 4x4, part of the Powerblock on Spike TV, a position she held for four years and 90+ episodes. Together with a co-host, they built everything from race trucks to street trucks and trail rigs to trailers for an audience of millions.
  • Left the Powerblock to recover from on-set accident, chose to move on with her career and in 2008 she left the show in pursuit of other opportunities.
  • Appearances on 2 Guys Garage, TruckU, SEMA Show Special, DuplicolorTV, Full Throttle TV, Pirate4x4 TV Live, and Bosch 125.
  • In 2009 appeared as a host and builder on the 7th season of Mythbusters while Kari Byron was on maternity leave.
  • Jessi can currently be found on All Girls Garage on Velocity Channel, The List: 1001 Car Things To Do Before You Die on AOL's, and she joined Overhaulin’ as a host and ‘A-Team’ hybrid member, which returns to Velocity Channel in the fall of 2012.

Jessi is proud of the relationships she has fostered throughout her career and she continues to represent many companies, including Bilstein, as a spokesperson as well as a product expert.

  • On starting her own fab shop: “A place where bad ass hot rods, motorcycles, custom trucks, race vehicles, and anything metal will originate with a feminine touch; where chicks can finally have a place to get dirty, be creative, use their skills, explore talents, go fast, and have fun in a comfortable working environment”.
