Below are all the nasty little badguys that have made up Jesse's Rogues Gallery to date...
He travelled the globe over, studying everything he possibly could about speed, the nature of motion, etc. everything that could fuel his power, and all the while he kept pushing himself faster and faster, convinced that with enough speed he could enter the speedforce and learn all its secrets. Savitar soon turned to Johnny Quick for answers, but quickly dissatisfied with Johnny's replies he tried to kill him in order to gain Johnny's speed, but was thwarted by Max mercury and Johnny Quick. Savitar eventually sped along the barrier of the speedforce as Max chased him, until he leaped through time.
Arriving in the modern era, Savitar re-established his cult of ninja followers, and devised a means of stealing the speed powers from others and bestowing them on whomever he chose, and so he stole the power of all earth's speedsters (save the Flash), until Jesse was able to destroy his power-syphoning machine. During the ensuing battle, both Johnny Quick and Savitar died and became part of the speedforce.
(personal note: I believe that since the Black Flash is the embodiment of death for speedforce users, and that since Wally sent it crashing through the end of time and out of "our" plane of existence, all of the speedsters, including Jesse, should now be completely immortal. So odds are it wasn't actually the true embodiment of death)
