Just read the announcement and I have tears in my eyes. He was one of the top responders that helped me most whilst learning the ins/outs of javascript and provided important feedback to help me mature my skill set. I'm... at a loss of words. You won't be forgotten.

I'm so sad for this. He was a guru and very talented, considering his age. He helped me many times at the speed of light. I will not forget him.

Came here thinking this would probably be a meme sent by Jello. One of the most active leaders in the community; his absence will be missed and felt. Its a struggle seeing depression take away the most charming ones first.

Wow, that is so sad, he was always so friendly and helpful. It won't be the same in #javascript without him.

GreenJello was always willing to jump in and help someone. When our ##javascript bot lost a maintainer, he took over and created a new one. He'll be sorely missed.

Incredibly sad to hear this news.

He was one of the most helpful people in JavaScript irc.

GreenJello was considerate, smart, helpful, and reliable. It's hard to keep a good reputation over a long period of time in any realtime chat medium, and he managed to do it for nearly a decade - which is a testament to the quality of his character.

In particular, when our factoid/repl bot became unreliable, he took it upon himself to write, host, and maintain a replacement. When the old bot vanished, his jellobot was around to pick up the slack. It will continue to be maintained and hosted in his memory.

He will be long remembered, and his impact will continue to be felt for a long time.

Frankie helped me on numerous occasions, almost every time I opened IRC I saw him helping someone in chat.

The world is worse off without him. Rest in Peace Frankie.

Extremely sad. Every time I saw GreenJello on IRC he was helping people while being kind, considerate, and genuine.

RIP GreenJello. It is tough you got to this place. Wherever you are, I hope it is peaceful. You inspired me to keep going in the dark moments of IRC and I'll never forget it, or you.

Gone too soon! I'm feeling so sad about it!

The last time I spoke to GreenJello over DM was in July 2021.

We have lost a gem :(

What an amazing person GreenJello was I can't believe this. I thought GreenJello was an older person I had no idea he was so young. There was so many interesting discussions over the years. The channel was absolutely honored by his presence.
I know when I was learning to code, he made me better, always taking the time to explain things.
Don't know what else to say this just doesn't make sense.

Just went on irc to ask a question after not logging in for some months and saw the note re: GreenJello, holy fuck. I never met or knew him but he helped me numerous times throughout the past years when I'd show up to #javascript and ask questions. Totally selfless person to spend time helping people like that.

The past two years were shit and it affected so many people and this just really reminded me how fragile mental health can be.

Rest in Peace Frankie.

I read the topic of #reactjs just few minutes ago and only because I was disconnected and then reconnected back. And then I'm reading this...
Can't believe this...
It feels like I was talking to him just a month ago or so... but time runs so fast.
It's so so fucking sad.
I didn't know he was so young. I'm 45.
He has been helping those like me for years.
He was kind and very helpful for me personally. He was my mentor. One of a few who I really trusted and loved.

Rest in Peace man, I'm missing you... fuck...
