Jacques Dessemme Death and Cause

The news fell on Saturday in the early evening and went around the world: Jacques Dessemme, licensed to the Children of the Valserine Bellegarde (license VT253819), and best European player in the 50s, died at the 93 years old.

Considered a basketball genius, Jacques Dessemme, was born in Bellegarde, September 25, 1925. He was crowned best scorer of the championship of France (1950, 1951 and 1953). At the time, he had marked the spirits by scoring 30 of the 54 points of the France team against Belgium (1951). 

The basketball international club did not fail to pay a tribute, during his last gala, to his dean and true basketball legend.

Jacky was never far off the field, to go see a match at Bourg or Asvel. And he rarely missed the Bellegarde International Tournament, organized by his club of always.

This year, for the 33rd edition, 19 to 21 April, he will not be there to follow the progress of the French U16 men’s team, but he will be in the hearts of all Bellegardiens and all basketball players.
