Rice started the Dajae Coleman Foundation, which organized the weekend. A post on the foundation's Facebook page Sunday stated: "Amazing is an understatement when describing DaeDaeWorld Weekend. Our First Annual DaeDaeWorld Weekend was a huge success. DC3F appreciates all who came out to volunteer and support the weekend that celebrated the life of such a beautiful spirit, Dajae Coleman."
Others took to social media to remember their friend and talk about the impact his death had on Evanston. A sampling of some of those statements from Twitter, Facebook and Instagram is above.
