The following are some tributes posted on social media to honor the life and the legacy of the deceased.
The same system that made it near impossible for Kieem to exist is the same system that will likely never get Kieem justice, but I vow to go hard for you cousin.
My cousin Kieem had a great heart, grit, & determination.

Rest in peace, #AkieemJolla. Another member of the #CanesFam gone too soon—stabbed to death in his hometown of New Orleans at 37 years young. May God be with his family and friends during this awful, senseless tragedy. #TheU pic.twitter.com/cZl9AIawyl

You lost one of your many greats last night in Akieem Jolla. If those young boys ever needed a reason to put it all on the line this football season, here’s one to add to the list. Being that championship trophy home for my Dawg! He’d want nothing more!
