Junior Seth Martinez, 20, passed away in a vehicular accident on Nov. 18 on Texas State Highway 329. Students and faculty remember him and discuss the life he lived.

"Seth and I were pretty close," RamTV coworker Dylan Jimenez said. "He would come to me when he wanted advice on his next YouTube video."

Martinez worked as a video editor at RamTV, but also had a gaming channel on YouTube where he would perform skits, Jimenez said.

"Seth was always good at taking my advice because I supported him on his channel," Jimenez said.

Martinez always had fun ideas when editing and frequently talked about how he wanted to improve his skills, Jimenez said.

Jimenez said his best memories with him were when they would work the soccer games for RamTV and record the sports shows.

"How I want Seth to be remembered is for people to remember how happy he was," he said. "Every time I would see Seth, he was always smiling and was ready to tackle whatever life threw at him."

Jimenez said what he enjoyed most about Martinez was the way he viewed life and how he lived it.

"He was ambitious and a kind-hearted person," Jimenez said. "I’m going to miss seeing him walk into work and miss the joy we had with him."

Isaac Wilkerson, RamTV director, said he and Martinez were good friends, as well.

"Whenever I needed someone, Seth was there," Wilkerson said.

Wilkerson said Martinez was one of the best video editors to ever work at RamTV.

"Seth should be remembered as a happy guy who looked towards the scary unknown that is the future with confidence and optimism," Wilkerson said.

Wilkerson said Martinez had a very interesting sense of humor, but it was something they had in common.

"Seth was also my Batman," Wilkerson said. "Whenever I had cool video ideas, he’d be the person to help breathe life into them. Seth was, overall, just a great friend and coworker."

Dr. June Smith, professor, said she had him in her argumentation and debate class every Tuesday and Thursday.

"I had just met him this semester," Smith said. "It was my first experience with him. He was very participative, had a good sense of humor and was hard working. I was impressed by Seth."

Smith said there was a particular moment she shared with Seth that she remembers most. She was walking down the mall area of campus and Martinez kindly approached and greeted her. He was different from other students, she said.

"Most students would just pass on by," Smith said. "I am very saddened by this."
