SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic, November 14, 2022.- The NORCECA Volleyball Confederation is in mourning for the loss of one of the best sports journalists of the Dominican Republic and a member of our family.

Our dearest Roosevelt, Dominican journalist legend, was inducted to the Dominican Sports Hall of Fame in 2019, with more than 50 years of professional career and who began his history in sports as a basketball athlete where he excelled in the starting team of the Central American and Caribbean Games in 1966.  

Comarazamy stood out as baseball journalist and narrator, broadcasting pioneer of Dominican basketball and volleyball. He was a Doctor of Law graduated with “Cum Laude” honors from the Santo Domingo University and professor of journalism at the Central East University in Dominican Republic.

He was the current FIVB Press Officer for the North, Central American and Caribbean region NORCECA since 2002, where he was appointed as press director for multiple continental and Pan American championships, standing out his appointment as volleyball Press Supervisor for the Olympic Games of London 2012 and Rio de Janeiro 2016, as well as the World Championships of Japan 2010 and Italy 2014.

Comarazamy, respected in volleyball worldwide, leaves us at the age of 74.
