This is such sad news. I am sorry to hear about Remy. He was such a great worker and student, but so much more than that would be my observations of him both, in and out of class.
He was always polite and willing to share and give to those around him. He will be missed by so many people. I only had him in two classes but was so glad I had the opportunity to meet him. My heart goes out to his family and friends.

Truly heartbroken. Such an amazing guy and designer, never met anyone who thought the way he did. Always thinking out of the box. This next semester is not going to be the same without him. Praying for his family.

I am deeply saddened and stunned to hear the passing of Remy. While he was a student in one of my classes, first and far most he was a kind, enthusiastic and respectful gentleman who brought wit and whimsy to his creative work and collaboration with others.
He will be missed by many; deepest condolences to his family and friends—Prayers and Peace. Sharing a capture from a magazine collaborative project where Remy works his “dapper self” into the ad.
