Sekou Smith was one of the first NABJ-ers to take me under his wing and make me feel like I belonged. He pushed to bring the best out of young reporters, was a fierce advocate of diversity in journalism — and did it with a smile on his face. A pro. Our friend. He is missed.— Malika Andrews (@malika_andrews)

Sekou Smith was my brother from another. We bonded from day 1, mostly because he bonded with everybody from day 1. I’m absolutely gutted, especially for his wife, his kids & his pops. I can’t describe how much his friendship will be missed.
I love you, brother.— John Schuhmann (@johnschuhmann)
Every photo I have of Sekou Smith, he's smiling. That's who he was - walking, talking joy. I can't believe he's gone, not today, not at all, not like this. My heart goes out to his family and everyone whose lives he made better, which was, well, everyone.
