Colleagues and friends, including John Stamos and Nancy Sinatra, paid heartfelt tributes, emphasizing Foskett’s influence and positive spirit.

“I’m so heartbroken that my dear friend Jeff Foskett has passed,” Brian Wilson wrote.

“Jeff was always there for me when we toured and we couldn’t have done it without him. Jeff was one of the most talented guys I ever knew. He was a great musical leader and guitarist and he could sing like an angel.”

“I first met Jeff in 1976 when he knocked on my door in Bel Air and I invited him in, and we were friends ever since.”

“I don’t know what else to say. Love and Mercy to Jeff’s family and friends, we will remember him forever.”

“Today, I lost more than a friend; I lost a part of my soul, my history – Jeffrey Foskett, my dearest friend, brother, and the brightest light in my life, has left this world,” John Stamos said.

“Jeff was more than just a friend; he was the one who brought the harmonies of The Beach Boys into my life, and with them, a spectrum of color and joy I never dreamed would be part of my life.”

“He was a vibrant force, a radiant soul whose laughter and wisdom touched everyone he met.”

“He was an older brother in spirit, guiding, lifting, and loving me, sometimes more than I thought I deserved.”

“@jeffreyfoskett was such a sweet man and I was very sorry to hear of his passing. He and @brianwilsonlive were there for me when I needed them, beautifully recreating @thebeachboys sound on my recording of ‘California Girls’ for my California Girl album and I’ll never forget it. Thank you, Jeffrey, and godspeed,” Nancy Sinatra posted.

Al Jardine highlighted Foskett’s humor and resilience in the music industry.

“He was so talented on so many different levels but it was his wonderful sense of humor that kept him balanced and helped him navigate all the hard knocks you get in the music business,” Jardine said.

“Jeff had a contagious positive spirit and never gave up hope. God bless his beautiful spirit and zest for life, we will really miss him and cherish all the great times we shared together.”

“Keeping his wife Diana, his daughter and family and fans everywhere in our thoughts. Rest in peace Jeff and thanks for always making us smile.”
