His two daughters, Sundari, 13, and 8-week-old Fujibo, were killed during the crash. His son Kisasi, 10, was placed on life support after being taken to the hospital but later succumbed to his injuries.

Ramsess’ two other daughters were also in the car. Three-year-old Shazia remains hospitalized after she was ejected from the vehicle during the crash.

Taraja’s mother, Akili Ramsess, wrote in an Instagram post about her son and grandchildren.

“All who knew and met him know how special Taraja was,” Akili wrote in an Instagram post Nov. 1. “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.”

Ramsess went on, “Sundari, Sunny as she was called, also reflected that special light. Funny & loved to dance. Oh God! I can’t believe they’re gone! We are grieving and remain prayerful for my grandchildren’s recovery. Thank you to so many who have already reached out with kind words and prayers.”
