Could you help me please?
Which one is correct, there is or there was for a situation which tells about someone who already died but he keeps impressing others by his spirit.
Example : I realised there was a boy who still impresses others by his spirit 💪🏼 or I realised there is a boy who still impresses others by his spirit 💪🏼
Help me please....

I realised there was a boy who still impresses(impressed) others by(with/through/thanks to) his spirit.
The preterite is used to respect tense matching.
