WSB TV reported that Ramsess’ vehicle rammed into a tractor-trailer that had broken down on the left lane of an Atlanta highway near the Wesley Chapel Road exit. The two surviving children were ejected from the vehicle.

One of Ramsess’ friends, Tony Tony Tucci stated that he was “always a family man and always shared his movie experiences.

“When I first heard about it, I broke down,” Tucci said. “I had to sit down. He was always a family man. They would come and sit and watch him train, and they would jump in and start training too.”

“He was always sharing his experiences, happy and glad to be part of that community. During the screening of Black Panther, he couldn’t stop talking about it. He was so happy to be a part of it.”

Some of the movies he worked in were: “Emancipation,” “Black Adam” and “Cruel Intentions.” He also appeared in TV shows “BMF,” “Atlanta” and “All the Queen’s Men.”

Ramsess is survived by his mother Akili and surviving children. A GoFundMe was started to help support his mother, Akili in her time of need.
