Before he passed away, he was building his media empire as the founder of Granity Studios, which will release its latest novel “Legacy and the Double” Tuesday, which marks Kobe Bryant Day. 

He would have proudly watched his daughter Natalia as she began her journey as a college student at the University of Southern California and Gianna would have just started her sophomore year in high school. Bianka starts the new school year as a preschooler while 2-year-old Capri continues to observe the world around her as a toddler. 

Those who knew and loved him continue to keep his legacy alive and shared heartwarming posts with sentimental pictures on social media to celebrate his special day.
