Yossel, age 25, died suddenly and unexpectedly on August 20, 1999.
Johannes Claerbout was the creator of Yossel's Toessels.
(He invented the word "toessel".)
Johannes is pronounced Yohannes, rhyming with Yossel's toessels.
In everyday life, he called himself Jos Claerbout.
He appears on the entrance page of HIS FORMER WEB SITE and as the model Jos-E-Jos. In early days of Yossel's Toessels he used this self portrait which is derived from this photo.

Respects to Yossel's family.
