Lemma 17.13.2. Let $i : (Z, \mathcal{O}_ Z) \to (X, \mathcal{O}_ X)$ be a closed immersion of ringed spaces. Let $\mathcal{F}$ be a quasi-coherent $\mathcal{O}_ Z$-module. Then $i_*\mathcal{F}$ is locally on $X$ the cokernel of a map of quasi-coherent $\mathcal{O}_ X$-modules.

**Proof.**
This is true because $i_*\mathcal{O}_ Z$ is quasi-coherent by definition. And locally on $Z$ the sheaf $\mathcal{F}$ is a cokernel of a map between direct sums of copies of $\mathcal{O}_ Z$. Moreover, any direct sum of copies of the *the same* quasi-coherent sheaf is quasi-coherent. And finally, $i_*$ commutes with arbitrary colimits, see Lemma 17.6.3. Some details omitted.
$\square$
