"I'd like to utter a bunch of nice words right now, but it just isn't the time. These will come later and from a variety of sources. Please be grateful for the love you give, receive, have given, and will give. Jeremiah was, above all, about love. We adore you."

Green was just diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer, according to his mother, Carol Namatame, who shared the news on Christmas Day.

"It is with a heavy heart that the Green and Namatame families announce the demise of Jeremiah Green, their husband, father, son, and brother," Namatame stated in a Facebook statement.

"Jeremiah was a beacon of hope for so many. The family is requesting solitude at this time. More details, including a Celebration of Life for friends and admirers, will be released in the following months. Jeremiah's family would like to thank everyone for their prayers and support."

Green co-founded Modest Mouse in 1992 with lead singer Isaac Brock and bassist Eric Judy.
