The Jessi Combs Foundation was founded in 2019. The mission of the foundation is to educate, inspire and empower the next generation of female trailblazers & stereotype-breakers.  The guiding principle is the simple question “What Would Jessi Do?” and the foundation executes this mission via three pillars:

  • Educate
    • Trades were important to Jessi, the very vehicle that provided so many opportunities for her. The foundation will distribute individual scholarships and in-kind partner donations to educational institutions and learning centers to continually be a driving force behind the next generation of female tradespeople
    • Live event workshops will allow the foundation to keep alive and well the one-on-one interactions that Jessi loved so much
  • Inspire
    • This will resonate via in-house projects, as the foundation looks to continually set new bars on her behalf 
    • The foundation will continually utilize our voice to shine light on those whose achievements, talents and art inspire others 
  • Empower
    • Grants and Event Sponsorships will be the primary tools to support the efforts of events or attempted achievements that align with the barrier smashing attitude Jessi embodied
