Anthony Causi, beloved Post sports photographer, dies of coronavirus at 48

Anthony Causi, a longtime photographer for The Post whose prolific talent and larger-than-life personality made him a fixture in the New York sports world, died Sunday of the coronavirus at North Shore University Hospital. He was 48.

Causi is survived by his wife, Romina, and their children, John and Mia.

“Anthony Causi was our colleague, our friend and a brilliant journalist,” Steve Lynch, The Post’s editor in chief, said. “He was, quite simply, one of the best sports photographers in New York City, capturing all the major moments of the past 25 years. Soft-spoken, funny, but most of all kind — he was respected by those he photographed and admired by those with whom he worked.

“The Post that you read, and the newsroom that we work in, are less colorful today because of his absence. Our hearts go out to his family, and we share their grief.”
