Jessi Combs, known as the “fastest woman on four wheels,” passed away on August 27 in an accident. The MythBusters star was attempting to break her own land-speed record with a jet-powered vehicle. Along with her family, her boyfriend, Terry Madden, is also grieving her tragic death. Madden was one of the first few to break the news of Combs’ death. Here’s what he said and more about him in Terry Madden’s wiki.
Terry Madden Is from Kansas
Terry L. Madden was born on April 17, 1977 and is from Great Bend, Kansas. He lived in Fort McClellan in Anniston, Alabama in the ‘90s. The army installation has been in the media recently because of residents’ potentially toxic exposure to hazardous materials.
Very little is known about his family and early life at this point. He has at least one brother, Matt Madden, and a sister, Brooke Nixon Cherven, who still reside in Kansas.
Madden Is a Father to Three Children
According to his Facebook, Madden has three children from a previous relationship. He has two daughters, Chloe and Tanner, and a son, Dalton.
Their mother, Angela Chris Wilhite, married in 2008 and is based in Kansas. Madden’s children reside in Larned, Kansas and went to Larned High School.
Dalton, like his father, is also involved in motorsports and has worked as crew chief of local amateur teams. Only a few days before Combs’ death, Dalton had moved to California to be with his dad and had enrolled in Yucca Valley High School.

Can’t express how excited I / we are to have this kid here!!! . Got a phone call 2 weeks ago – “Dad I wanna come to California for my senior year”. He loaded his stuff in pickup at 17 – drove 1000 mile across country by himself from Kansas to California, spent the last week painting and working on his room, and starts school tomorrow as a Senior at Yucca Valley High School. Never in million years imagined I would end up in Yucca Valley – let alone be able to enjoy it with such amazing people. . Really proud of you @daltonmadden33 and really excited to see what we can all accomplish together.. . . Thank You !!! So much Jessi for helping make all this happen! You have no idea what it means to me!! . . #backtoschool #senior #family
Madden Broke the News of Jessi Combs’ Death
Madden was part of Jessi Combs’ crew and was also dating her. It’s unclear how they met or how long they’d been together.
According to reports, Harney County Sheriff’s Office in Oregon received a call around 4:00 p.m. about an accident in the Alvord Desert in southeastern Oregon. A jet car attempting to break a land-speed record had reportedly crashed.
The driver, reality star and professional racer Jessi Combs, was pronounced dead at the scene. She was the sole fatality in the crash. Details of the crash haven’t been revealed at this time.
Madden was the one to confirm the news to Combs’ fans in a heartbreaking Instagram post on Wednesday. He wrote a heartfelt tribute to his deceased girlfriend in the caption of a video montage of their fondest memories.
“So I don’t know how to say any of this but it all needs said. I have never loved or been loved by anyone as much as this amazing woman @thejessicombs she was truly my unicorn and I enjoyed every single minute that I had with her,” Madden began the post.
After revealing she died in a car crash, he said, “I was the first one there and trust me we did everything humanly possible to save her!”
In the same post, he said that Combs’ family would release an official statement soon and not to believe false reports on her accident. He also cautioned against donating to causes in her name that the Combs’ family hasn’t specified.
Madden added that he and Jessi’s family were working on completing the documentary she was filming before her death. The documentary will serve to keep her legacy alive, and the family is working on donating proceeds from the documentary to a foundation Combs supported. Until they decide on an organization her fans can donate to in her memory, he’s advised them not to fall for any scams.
