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.
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.
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
What an AWESOME! Nash vacation...
Sincerely, Andy Jespersen
