One of the best things about any neighborhood in the world are the characters that live there. People from all walks of life who give each hood it's own unique cache and cool, that titular soul who is painted in the background yet at the forefront of the history. 


One of those special people was Kevin Short, the Jesus of WeHo. 

WeHo or, West Hollywood-Los Angeles to the outsiders, is already an eclectic hodgepodge of assorted humanity and Kevin Short, WeHo Jesus, as he was more affectionately known was their beacon. Sadly on December 13th, 2017 Short passed on at the age of 57. At the moment all that is confirmed from family is that he suffered form a "brief illness" before dying. 

His death was first reported on Facebook by neighbor Brian Hamilton.

Short was a bit of a local celebrity, always greeting and posing with neighbors and visitors. He also had brushes with fame having appeared in Lana Del Ray music videos and it is believed the Aerosmith song "Sweet Jesus' was written about him.  

Twitter immediately began to share it's condolences and sweet memories.

There is always hope. 

Let's hope some lessons of love and light can be taken on from here. You only have to be kind to make an epic difference. 

THAT is what Jesus wold do! THAT is what he did!

Rest in peace friend.
