Jet is remembered as being quite a character. One episode involved the son of a co-worker. The young man, Evan Rushing, Jr., was on the way into town to buy a pair of shoes. He came across Jet by the blacksmith shop. When Jet learned that Evan had money to pay for the shoes, he asked Evan, "How'd you like to buy a horse?" He showed Evan a little bay, waiting in a stall to be shod by the blacksmith. Eavn said that his $2.50 wasn't enough to buy a horse, but Jet assured him, saying "that'll do it, just give me the money and the horse is yours." Evan was elated. He gave Jet the money, then went into town to wait for the blacksmith to return to shoe the horse. When he returned to the blacksmith shop to pick up his horse, the blacksmith asked, "What horse? You haven't got one here." When told of the transaction, the blacksmith "split his sides" laughing. With no horse, no shoes and no money, Evan returned home to a furious father who, the next day at work, quickly forced Jet to come up with the $2.50 (A GENEALOGY OF THE CHRISTIE NAMED DESCENDANTS OF JESSE CHRISTIE [op.cit.], 58).
