On Friday, May 26, 2023, GeeJee passed away at the age of thirty-seven. He saw no other way out for himself.
GeeJee was a talented organist and keyboardist. Music was his great passion.
We found each other through our common interest in the music of JMJ. It has brought us beautiful things as friends, and it has brought countless beautiful and special memories.
At the beginning of 2006 GeeJee produced the idea of setting up a website with a forum. Zoolook.nl was born. GeeJee has put a lot of energy into making the forum a success. He enjoyed this a lot. Many of you have had digital conversations with him and will have memories of this.
Together, we visited Paris multiple times, the city he loved so much. We attended several concerts. We had the opportunity to interview Francis Rimbert, Patrick Rondat, and Claude Samard, and even meet JMJ in Amsterdam.
But GeeJee had many more talents, he had a sharp mind, a wonderful sense of humour, was creative and loved to play with language, often through strong puns.
How I will miss him and what an empty place it will be on the forum…
In any case, let us continue one of his life's works as a tribute to a wonderful person.
