“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.”

Filmmaker Ave DuVernay posted a tribute to Ramsess on Instagram:

“Taraja. Regal. That’s the word that comes to mind when I think of him. He walked like a king. And to me, always acted like one… 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. From there – everyone else said yes too. He was that kind of person. A leader. A light.”
