Sean – Your birth was a blessing. Watching you grow was a gift of joy. Watching your journey is a lesson in life and love. Thank you for sharing what was uniquely you with so many people. The bonds we have are everlasting.

Sean, we lived on the same street for many years and shared many adventures in middle and high school. You, Cian, Brian, Hector, Josh, and Spencer, the whole gang. I remember the time we were in the woods crossing a log over water and you tickled me and I fell in. Then you saved me from drowning in about 4 feet of water (lol). My fondest memory of you is that amazing smile and sense of humor that you had. You always had us neighborhood kids laughing about something, even if it was ridiculous. You will never be forgotten. May you rest in peace, and I'm praying for your family during this time.

Sean was one of my very first interns I had the pleasure of mentoring at WPU. Being fresh out of college myself and Sean in his senior year, I’d like to think we both helped mentor each other. Sean was so artistically talented and was one of our best student photographers that we’ve had the pleasure of working with. Even if he did take 700 photos per game when we only needed about 100 lol XD.

One of my favorite memories of Sean was one of his final projects taking 360 degree photos of all of our athletic facilities. We traveled from campus to WakeMed Soccer Park, to the USA Baseball Complex in Cary, to the lacrosse fields in Holly Springs snapping pics. The catch was, the camera operated on Bluetooth and you had to be within so many feet of the camera to take the image. So in every facility photo, Sean and I are hiding somewhere behind a tree, door, media table, large rock, bleacher etc. What could’ve been a tedious job taking tons of photos turned out to be the best time thanks to Sean and his creativity.

Sean, you and that infectious laugh are missed so much. Thank you for everything.

Love and peace to his family. ❤️

To Sean’s loved ones,

There are no words that could express the deep sorrow we are all feeling at the loss of such a beautiful soul. He was the type of person that never met anyone who didn’t like him. He was kind hearted, thoughtful and had a smile that lit up a room. We are all better people for having had him in our lives and we will treasure the memories we have with him forever. May your loved ones find comfort in Him and in knowing how much you were loved, because as we know this is not the end, but only the beginning. Until we see you again Sean.

Mi querida amiga de la infancia Patricia, no existen palabras para lograr aliviar tu dolor, nadie espera que un hijo se nos vaya tan pronto o primero que nosotros los padres, pero los mandatos de Dios son únicos e inexplicables para simples humanos como nosotros, nos queda aceptar con templanza y humildad su decisión. Tú cómo madre y toda tu familia tuvo la bendición de poder compartir hermosos años con Sean y son esas experiencias que no lo dejaran morir jamás en sus corazones. Mis más sentidas condolencias y de parte de mi familia para ti, tu esposo y toda tu familia.
Adriana, Víctor Macías e hijos

Sean, you're the guy with the biggest heart, the most infectious smile, and a simply unmatched personality. The impact left on everyone's lives simply from sharing the same space with you can't even begin to be measured. We're all so lucky that we had the opportunity to know you.

My heart is with Sean's family and those close to him during this incredibly difficult time.
