STATEMENT BY MAYOR BLOOMBERG ON DEATH OF JOSE 'CHEGUI' TORRES
"Yesterday, our City lost a fierce champion of the sports industry, a devoted public servant, and a great New Yorker: Jose Chegui Torres. Jose held many titles, among them - Hall of Famer, Olympian, Commissioner, author, and journalist. Although Jose had returned to his native Puerto Rico, he left behind a legacy of achievement in New York - on our sports, our politics, our literature - that will long be remembered by all those who knew him. Nuestro más sentido pésame a su familia y su esposa Ramonita. Lo recordaremos."
