September 13, 1969 - August 3, 2018

It is with great sadness that the family of Nickylyn "Totie" "Nickko" Cava Jellison announces his passing.

Nickylyn was born in Bocolod City, Philippines, September 13, 1969, and immigrated with his family to the United States as a toddler. Raised in Honolulu, Nickylyn moved to San Francisco when he was a teen and graduated from Wallenberg High School. He studied marketing and early childhood education at UC Davis before working as a project manager in the tech industry.

He loved his dogs, Odessa and Leah, visited many countries, and saw every Cirque du Soleil show he could. More than anything, he shared his laughter, generosity, and loyalty with all of us.

On August 3, 2018, Nickylyn went on to his final pilgrimage.

Nickylyn leaves behind his parents, Nicomedes and Linda; his brothers and sister, Nickclair, Christopher, Nick John, and Nicolette, along with each of their spouses; many nephews and nieces whom he adored; his ex-husband, Tim Jellison, and Leah.

A celebration of Totie/Nickko's life will take place Sunday, September 16, from 2 to 5:30 p.m., at the Academy, 2166 Market Street in San Francisco.

Nickko would have appreciated any memorial donations to an animal rescue organization of your choice.
