Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell, Paul Walker’s Girlfriend, Collapsed After Hearing of Walker’s Death

Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell, Paul Walker’s girlfriend of seven years, took the news of Walker’s death hard. 

Jim Torp, an engineer at the Reach Out Worldwide charity that Walker founded, was next to Pilchard-Gosnell when he received the news that Walker had died.

 “When I told her what happened she fell, she collapsed,” Torp told Hollywood Life.

After Pilchard-Gosnell, 23, recovered, she had the tough task of breaking the news of the death to Walker’s 15-year-old daughter Meadow.

“I believe she is the one who told Meadow about what happened, and when she found out she was hysterical and crying,” Torp said. “It was just so sad. I tried to do everything I could to help them. Paul’s girlfriend then took Meadow and drove her home. I don’t know if they drove to crash site. I just know they were in so much anguish.”

Pilchard-Gosnell and Walker had been dating since 2006.

“Paul was a really good guy and Jasmine is broken up by this,” Barton Bruner, Jasmine’s uncle, told the Daily Mail.

“They had their ups and downs but they were together and looking to spend a bright future together. This is horrible news and unexpected. Her mother is with her and she is comforting her.”

Bruner said that Walker had joined Pilchard-Gosnell’s family for Thanksgiving. And Bruner had just played golf with him as well.

Pilchard-Gosnell is a college student and lives in Santa Barbara, California, according to her Facebook page.  She and Walker both enjoyed being outdoors at the beach and hiking.

Walker died in a car crash on November 30. Roger Rodas, Walker’s friend, was driving the car, and also died.

  • Barbie McNutt

    Am I missing something? She’s 23 yrs old and they’ve been dating since 2006??? That would have made her 16 yrs old to his 33 when they met. Really hoping something in that article is inaccurate.

    • Ben_Chasteen

      CORRECTION: What I wrote was previously wrong, you are correct Barbie. I guess I didn’t want to believe that he was 33 at the time. Well in Hawaii the legal is 16 and not 18.

      • Barbie McNutt

        Pardon me, but he just turned 40 in Nov, I believe. That makes my math accurate. So I reiterate – there must be inaccuracies in either her age now or when they began dating b/c he would be a pedophile otherwise. Your argument that he was 26 is neither here nor there b/c 26 yr olds don’t date teenagers unless they have a penchant for prison.

        • Ben_Chasteen

          Oh yes I am very sorry you are correct, my apologies. So he was 33 when they first met and she was 16. After doing a bit more research they met in Hawaii for the first time. In Hawaii sexual consent is actually 16. I am not by all means trying to justify this, I am simply stating it as a fact.

        • Oscar

          Well, who cares how old she was or he was when they started dating. The fact is, that he is dead. That’s the bottom line of this article,
          anything else is irrelevant.

          • Ben_Chasteen

            Yes Oscar you are correct.

      • Leigh Ann

        He is 40 when he died hun

      • D_chap

        Ben he died at 40!

      • Kate Ann

        He was 40 when he died and he was 33 when they started dating.

      This was known about since 2009.
