Very sad to know about the death of my brother Star Trek Aron Eisenberg. I found this video by@DragonCon2016 that I took of him doing what he loved doing: entertaining the fans. I will remember him more for his humor and his acute intelligence. Rest in peace Aron. We will miss you pic.twitter.com/H9QBEFQpAD

Rest in paradise, Aron. You were a gem in a coal-filled universe. Thank you for making me feel like a family from day one. The conventions will never be the same without you making me laugh and make jokes at Cirroc … https://t.co/aIxOkpKXiD

So sad to hear about the passage of the wonderful and talented @aroneisenberg. Years ago we were all lucky enough to be guests of a convention in Paris together and we have always enjoyed his company every time I've seen him since. Sacre bleu! https://t.co/nRTXYIVkRU
