Our Story


Jessie grew up in Lander Wyoming, a small town outside of Casper. His dad was a GM mechanic growing up and always had a passion for hot rods. From Chevelles, G bodies and Trans Am’s; Jessie grew up wrenching on the best with his dad! He began working at various mechanic shops and savage yards at a very young age, and spent all his time in the auto shop in high school. During high school he drove both his 79 Trans am, and the 82 Trans Am the “Transmaro”. He had a passion for racing from the time he could drive, and spent his years as a young adult learning different skills from various shops he worked at.


Stacie grew up in Loveland Colorado, an hour north of Denver. Her dad had a 69 step side C10 with a Muncie 4-speed and he taught her to drive in the truck. Stacie didn’t grow up around racing but when she turned 19, she got the bug and started bracket racing at Bandimere Speedway. As her car got faster she moved to heads up racing, and in 2005 won an NHRA Wally. She sold real estate and owned her own property management company when she met Jessie in 2014.

Jessie's Performance

Together, Jessie and Stacie established Jessie’s Performance Inc. in 2014, just six months after they met. Initially intending to fix and flip cars, the business quickly grew into a reputable LS Swap Specialty Shop and Classic Car Resto-Mod Builder. Originally based in Colorado, Jessie and Stacie relocated the business to Fort Worth, Texas, in 2019. Fast forward ten years, Jessie’s has become an internationally known name in the automotive performance and racing industry, building beautiful, high-performance classics and race cars. In addition to building cars, Jessie and Stacie travel around the country participating in burnout contests and drag racing, with their three dogs and a cat in tow.
