'Mythbusters' Star Jessi Combs' Boyfriend Pays Tribute to Her in Heartbreaking Post

By

Jessi Combs may be gone, but she is far from forgotten.

On Sunday, the Mythbusters star's boyfriend, fellow driver Terry Madden, shared an old photo of himself and Combs, along with a touching tribute to the TV personality.

"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," he captioned a photo of himself and Combs, both dressed as mimes at an event. "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," he continued. "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."

He also shared that there's "a really upset cab driver out there" who had to deal with "the greatest 5 min Charade of us acting out west gate hotel on the side walk because we wouldn't talk. …he was pissed and we laughed until our cheeks hurt!!!"

Madden confirmed on Wednesday that Combs had died in a "horrific accident" the day before while attempting to break a land speed record in a jet car in Oregon's Harney County.

Since Combs' death, Madden has also shared some photos of other adventures with his girlfriend, including a trip to Grand Canyon.

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

ET Live spoke with Mythbusters host Adam Savage on Thursday, where shared his reaction to the tragic news.

"It's a real shock and my heart goes out to her family and friends and her boyfriend," Savage said. "What they're going through must be absolutely awful right now."

Savage also talked about the legacy Combs has left behind, and noted how she was especially inspiring for girls with an interest in science.

"The Jessi that I knew wanted to inspire young people like her to try things that they were maybe afraid to try and didn't think was possible," he shared. "She achieved tremendous success in a club that was very much a boys club and she held her own tremendously and including all of that, she was also a tremendous science communicator. She shared her knowledge, she shared her enthusiasm, she shared her love on what she did with the world and that is super inspiring."
