A Special 100th Episode Tribute to Jaime P. Gomez (May 20, 2000)

OK, a bit of explanation first. We received these photos of Jaime P. Gomez and Jodi Lyn O'Keefe last year (July 12, 1999). The e-mail came in while my webmaster and I were away in Seattle, Washington. We totally forgot about them.

But during the two-part airing of the fifth season finale "Jackpot", I did vaguely recall having received photos of Jaime and Jodi together. It took an intensive search for a week before the lost e-mail was located by my webmaster extraordinaire, Spencer.

As played by actor Jaime P. Gomez, the character of Evan Cortez was, at times, funny, touching, and always well-acted. During these past 5 seasons of NASH BRIDGES, we have become fans of Jaime P. Gomez. We wish him well in his departure from the show. We will follow Jaime's career from time to time and mention of him in our NashBITS.

So here's several snapshots of Jaime taken by his friend Jack. These photos were presumably taken in Los Angeles, as this is where Jaime grew up. A belated thank you to Jack for sending us these photos.



These are a couple pic's I took of my bud Jaime at the "Whittier Uptown Festival" yesterday. I've known Jaime since we were freshmen in High shool. So being that he is from Whittier they asked him to show up and sign autographs and greet people at the festival because it's a yearly thing that draws over 100,000 people each day.

...I figured your site might like these of him and Jodi (Yes they are involved). And she's a total sweetheart in person.

I'm sure you get alot of people claiming they're friends of so and so but trust me, me and "Jaime G." as he's alway's been called, have been bud's for a long time.

Later

Jack

A NASH Vacation - An Encounter with the NB Production in Las Vegas (May 5, 2000)

We received this three day journal entry of Andy Jespersen on vacation in Las Vegas - Andy and his wife Shannon were lucky enough to have a major encounter with the NB cast. Thank you Andy for your excellent and detailed report, and for contacting and supporting us.


Dear Gordon,

My wife Shannon, some friends and myself just got back from Las Vegas and WOW! what a trip. Walking by the Mirage casino at 2am (4/17) we bumped into the Nash film crew. Luckily we were there early enough to get front row center behind the security ropes. Not 10 minutes into this I turned around and not 2 feet from me is Jaime and Jodie (hand-n-hand / definitely an off screen item). We seemed to be the only ones in the crowd who had a clue who they were. Then a black Mercedes pulls up to the curb and out pops Don himself. We spent the next 2 hours watching various extras and some key characters doing their scenes. Don spent most of the time (right in front of us) joking around with his cast and crew or watching the filming on his monitor. Jaime and Jodie continued to stand behind us just hanging out, thank god we had a camera. We found out that this was the season finale and that they would be filming for the next few days in and around the casino. Well being the HUGE Nash fans that we are, we weren't going to miss this for the world. The gambling and buffets were going to have to wait.

Second night 4/18:

2am at the intersection of Las Vegas Blvd. and Flamingo Rd. what should we see but a bright shinny yellow CUDA! The crew was setting up for a scene to be shot going down Las Vegas Blvd. As we patiently waited, once again here comes the black Mercedes, YEA!!! Out comes Don and Cheech. They both proceeded to enter the Cuda as Cheech waived to the crowd and clowned around. Once all was ready they yelled ACTION! and off the went down the strip.

Third night 4/19:

Out in front of the Mirage again (3am). Don shows up in a tux (Cassidy and Evan getting married in Vegas? Hmmmm). The scene being shot was Don and a stunning blond walking down the sidewalk conversing. Between takes Don was talking to Ronnie (the SIU cop). They shot the scene a couple of times over, Don messed up his lines once. The director finally got what he wanted and Don headed back to his Mercedes but first stopped in front of us for pictures. WAY COOL!!! Guy... Out of no where appears Jaime, Jodie and Yasmine. Yasmine posed for some pictures and then they headed into the Mirage casino. How unfortunate that I had to run in as well to make a pit stop. While answering the call of "Mother Nature" (to many beers) in walks Jaime. I really wanted to make some kind of joke about "having only one nut" but I was speechless. After regaining my composure, we exchanged introductions (outside the bathroom). Jodie joined us and we talked about passed and current episodes. They were both extremely nice and thanked my wife and I repeatedly for watching the show.

What an AWESOME! Nash vacation...

Sincerely, Andy Jespersen
