The OPCC is saddened to learn that Jose Rodriguez T. Señase, a long-serving journalist and member of the OPCC, passed away on Feb. 1, 2023 at the age of 41.
Jose will be remembered by Cambodia’s journalist community as a smiling, friendly face – a frequent sight at OPCC events – and a hard-working, prolific reporter.
Since arriving in Phnom Penh in 2016, Jose rose to become deputy sports editor at Khmer Times. In 2020, Jose served as a board member for the OPCC where he worked to support journalism in Cambodia at a time when the world faced unprecedented challenges.
Well-known as a consistent fixture in Cambodian journalism and well-liked for his jovial rapport with those he met, Jose will be missed.
The OPCC wishes to extend our deepest condolences to Jose’s family in the Philippines and colleagues in Cambodia.
