The news was tragic: Paul had passed away. He was just 20 years old, a junior in the School of Arts and Sciences at Rutgers University. At first, Kim’s family thought a brain aneurysm had taken Paul’s life. But Paul had taken his own life, dying by suicide. “Kyle and I felt like he passed away twice,” Suzanne said. “It was just really really hard for us.” Paul apparently had jumped off of the George Washington Bridge, where his bicycle was found. His body was discovered in the Hudson River on Oct. 21, 2014. “I miss the outgoing part of how he was,” Anderson told the NBPA. “I’m kind of the opposite, but he lights up the room. We don’t just say that because he’s gone. Paul was literally friends with everybody in the neighborhood. He was just a great person. He was definitely one of our favorites for sure.”

To honor Kim, with an emphasis on suicide and mental health awareness, Anderson has hosted his annual Celebrate Life Day: Basketball Tournament and Clinic In Remembrance of Paul Kim the past two summers in New Jersey. During the event at School #6 in the Cliffside Park School District, kids and teenagers not only play basketball games and receive instruction. They also learn important life skills, positive behavior and anti-violence approaches from the Kidz Peace Team and Life Skills 360, the latter co-led by Kenny Donaldson, who was Anderson’s academic advisor at UCLA.

Another one of Anderson’s fondest memories was during the summer going into his junior year at St. Anthony’s High School, with Paul at Cliffside Park High School. When Anderson was done with basketball practice, and Paul with football—he was an outside linebacker—they would always meet up. “We’d hang out from 4 p.m. until 4 a.m. the next day,” Anderson said. “And I can remember at 1, 2 a.m., we’d walk to QuickChek every day, get a sandwich and head back to the house and just hang out for a few more hours—and do the same thing over again the next day. I can say we did that on the weekday all four weeks of August. It was honestly one of my favorite times, just hanging out with him.”
