Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell, Paul Walker’s Girlfriend, Mourning Walker’s Death
Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell, the girlfriend of actor Paul Walker, is mourning Walker’s sudden death.
Relatives said that Pilchard-Gosnell, 23, is being comforted by her mother Julie.
The pair have 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.”
Pilchard-Gosnell is a college student and lives in Santa Barbara, California, according to her Facebook page.
She was with Jim Torp, an engineer with Walker’s Reach Out Worldwide charity, when she received the news, reported Hollywood Life. Torp received a phone call that from the looks of things Walker and Roger Rodas, the car’s driver, didn’t make it.
“Paul’s girlfriend was standing next to me when I got the phone call,” Torp said. “When I told her what happened she fell, she collapsed.”

Pilchard-Gosnell was also the one to break the news to Meadow Walker, Walker’s 15-year-old daughter.
“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.”
Walker had Meadow with Rebecca McBrain, who lives in Hawaii. Walker said he didn’t want to marry McBrain because he didn’t feel mature enough at the time.
Meadow recently moved to California to live with Paul.
