Dom Tursi, one of New York’s most beloved and well-known court reporters and mastermind behind the Gallery of Shorthand, has passed away. I had the privilege of sitting down to talk to him in 2021 during a recorded interview, but it was never released. I’m now releasing it so that all reporters may get to hear Dom speak and remember this man that loved our field so much.
It’s tough for me. When I was a young reporter and didn’t know anybody, I got taken advantage of. I reached out to a few people for help and guidance, and he was one of the people that helped me forward, helped me maintain hope, and ultimately changed my mind about leaving the field. I am a court reporter today in part because of him. Thank you, Dom. You will be missed.
The video of the interview I have with Dom is hosted on my YouTube.
