It's one thing to repost one of my photos in honor of an artist whose work you admire, or to pay tribute to a recently deceased friend. It's another thing entirely to take that same photo and reproduce it in deplorable quality onto a #fashion #graffiti tshirt to make a few quid. #ripnemel #jessegeller #nycgraffiti #discobryso

Endlessly searching for you in the cracks and crevices of the cities and neighborhoods you once called home.

It’s been a few days and I still can’t really find the words so I’m just going to blurt them out and it probably won’t make any sense (you would have liked it that way anyway) I am so mad at you right now. I really, really am, but only out of all the love in the world, my heart is broken... The things we fought so hard against have taken you from us. I’m sad, a sad I haven’t ever felt and it’s so weird and I don’t know what to do with it.
No one could possibly know the depth of our friendship other than @carlyomalley. You were such a gentle, kind, funny, quirky, daring, wild, naked half the time, caring and loving soul with the most beautiful touch of innocence and annoyance that not many people may have experienced or understood in the way that we did. I feel so lucky that you shared this part of you with me (yes even the annoying parts.) You made me feel ok with who I am. You always accepted me for who I was, even embraced it when others didn’t. You took my over barring motherly tough love in as though it was exactly what you needed even if it wasn’t what you wanted or maybe it’s what you wanted but didn’t want to need it, you still accepted it and me no matter what. I wish I had had more of it to give you than I did. I love you and I miss you buddy. But in my sadness and madness I need to say THANK YOU for the gift you’ve left me or given back to me. I know you know what I’m talking about. XOX you are missed my friend. #rip #jessegeller #thesethingstaketime #lovemeorleavemealone #ham #jrak #nemel #ripnemel #mamatried #bauhaus

I wonder what we were talking about ....!?!! Writing,Racking or Macking??.. #DFW crew RIP #JesseGeller ✨✨regram @matt_cheney_tattoo_maker #muddywaters

Tag on plastic, and a meeting of the minds at Muddy Waters Cafe. Very clean Askot tag and NEMEL's favorite spot to hit in Clarion alley. You will be missed by so many. 🙏♥️🙏♥️🙏♥️🙏

Painting I did for Jesse and never gave to him. He was really stoked about it and asked for it all the time but we were both trainwrecks and I was afraid he would lose it in his travels. #NEMEL #jessegeller #RIPNEMEL

Jesse moved back to Philly 5 years ago. We were both going through a dark time & both needed a friend. He helped me more than he knows and I tried to help him. He had a lot of emotional pain, depression, addiction etc but he never gave up. Always trying to improve at tattooing which gave him a focus to get better. He embraced spirituality, did therapy, rehab, meetings, maintenance and reached out to friends with decades of clean time often. He wanted to live. Addiction is a horrible disease & a lot of people are medicating the pain & mental illness they are unfortunate enough to bear. We need more compassion & understanding around this disease. People do recover but it takes time, lots of support & money. Relapse is often a part of recovery. Our health system is a mess & doesn't take care of people like jesse. He was the most intense, annoying, funny, weird, impossible, fun, obsessive person rolled in one. And he really loved mama in case you missed it. I am heartbroken. I'll always miss you. 💔Hugs 2 u my friend. Yolo for dogs. #jessegeller #nemel

Goodbye, Jesse. We had fun. #nemel #jessegeller

Rest easy, Jesse Geller. You were a maniac but a very lovable one. See you at the house party in the sky. 💔 #ripnemel #jessegeller #dfw

Whoever’s in charge on the other side has their hands full. I don’t remember how or exactly when I met Jesse, but for a large chunk of my adult life he was a presence of energy like no other. He was the fuel to the fire. He could find his way in and out of trouble even when no trouble was to be found. A true mischief maker. Jesse lived his life by his rules and no one could stop him. Rest In Peace brother. #jessegeller #nemel

Reading people talking about Jesse today reminded me of the twin towers attack. I usually slept till like 2pm around that time. And at like 11 or so when the second plane hit Jesse yells through the door our room shared (you literally could hear everything in both of our rooms all the time) “yo robby get up!! they blowing up NY! PHILLY is next! We gotta get the fuck out of here! He left soon after that. I kind of blew it off because...well...Jesse. So who knows what the hell he meant. I eventually worked my way downstairs and listened to the phone machine and it was a message from his girlfriend at the time (Marie) “Jesse turn on the tv a plane just flew into one of the twin towers!” Then I was like holy shit he wasn’t just being insane. But that’s the Jesse I remember. you never knew if he was fucking with you or being funny 📷 by @kristie_krause #nemel #jessegeller #trasher

💔

We certainly shared some times together. I’m sorry I had to say goodbye a long time ago but I know you understood. Thank you for some of the best mix tapes of my life, and for talking me through the darkness. You deserved better from the beginning but fought a good fight. You were unapologetically fearless + made of magic. Rest peacefully, Jesse.🥀

Jesse Geller at Ocean Beach, San Francisco, 2007. Catch up with you soon. .

There was no in between with you. People either loved you or hated you, but most people didn’t “get” you. Some of my best and worst memories involve you. We spent a whole summer running around like kids, raiding Sunac at 2am for ice cream, staying up until the morning listening to music. We would laugh/cry about your triangle haircut. There was an innocence to you that not enough people got to witness. You were a gentle, creative soul. You also drove me completely nuts, but I loved you harder than I knew was even possible. I don’t know what happens now, where you are, or if this is just it forever. But wherever that endless summer in the sky is, I find comfort in knowing you get to rest, finally. I just hope you don’t get kicked out for taking your shirt off. JRG💔you were so loved, you dork. I will carry you with me forever, thank you for everything.

Jesse Ruben Geller September 22nd 1980 - October 7th 2018 My heart is broken. I love you so very much Bird. #jessegeller #nemel

I didn't know much about Jesse Geller, but I was a fan of his work. In 2012 while shooting The Videographers Guide at Art Basel Miami, by chance I came across Jesse doing a signature piece. There was no one around us which lent to an impression that he was in his unsanctioned element, even looking a bit nervous to be found out.
Often I would ask if I could document before pointing the camera in the direction of my subject, but if my memory serves right, I just made eye contact and I knew it was OK. Months later I used that moment as a chapter break in the documentary. #rip #jessegeller #nemel #earsnot #nemelirak #streetart

What a great day this was 🌞 painting with #nemel and #euroe 💫 #DFW brotherhood 🎚RIP #jessegeller #skywriting #dockofthebay
