Ramsess’s mother, Akili Ramsess posted on Instagram: ‘All who knew and met him know how special Taraja was. He had a deep capacity for love and loved his children more than all. He loved his martial arts, motorcycles and all things related to filmmaking.’
‘He a very droll yet wicked sense of humor & yet could be as cornball corny as can be. Sundari, Sunny as she was called, also reflected that special light. Funny & loved to dance. Oh God! I can’t believe they’re gone!’

Filmmaker Ave DuVernay posted a tribute to Ramsess on Instagram.
‘He walked like a king. And to me, always acted like one. He was a part of our crew family at ARRAY. He left us last night forever in a way that makes the hearts of all who knew him break into a million pieces,’ she said.
‘We’d talk about art and his family. My goodness, did he love his children. I remember one day on set, we didn’t have enough Black background actors for a key scene. I had to recruit my crew members to be on-camera.’
‘Taraja was the first to say yes. Yes, I’ll do my real job and then jump into this wild scene playing a tough guy with a gun for you,’ DuVernay said.
