    I have see all over facebook people saying Tiwg has died. R.I.P I had the chance to meet Twig in a evlevator in Vegas with my son and even though he was strapped for time he let us take his pic with my son and signed a autogrpah. Feld has lost one **** of a nice guy.

    What a loss for us all

    To know him was to love him! He will be missed by all who knew him. He was a great guy. He always had a smile and made us all laugh. His life ended way to soon. But he has forever touched us all. God bless his family in their loss.

    I only met him once and it happened to be in Las Vegas as well, when he found out I was from Canada we were comparing the weather where he is from in Minnisota to where I am in Canada he seemed like a heck of a guy.

    For those that don't know who Jesse Barden aka Twig is, he was a Feld Motorsports mechanic and was last on the Air Force Afterburner crew. I never formally met Twig so I will let other share their thoughts and memories of him.
    A tragic loss for all his friends & family.

    I had the pleasure to meet Twig and speak with him on a few occasions. He was a super nice guy and a pleasure to be around. I send my most heartfelt condolences to Twig's family and friends.

    From the sounds of it, he was a great guy.

    I been going to monster truck shows for a while, but never really got on any forums, tell I joined here, and learned alot about drivers and what not. So if I ask about someone, hopefully I don't sound stupid.

    I can't even start to believe this. Our family is so deeply saddened by this tragedy. Our thoughts go out to Jesse's family and friends. We love you Jesse! You will be forever missed.
