Roz passed away on September 19th, 2020 at the age of 56 after a courageous three year battle with metastatic breast cancer. Above all, Roz was a faithful member of her church and a lifelong disciple of Jesus Christ. She had a deep love of learning and served as a teacher and mentor to countless friends, students and acquaintances. Her last months were spent offering counsel and support to the many individuals whose lives she had influenced. She was often described as a light by those who benefited from her many acts of service…a light that would shine to help those in need, and a light that was also comfortable allowing others to shine. If Roz was your advocate, you could not fail—she wouldn’t allow it.
Roz was born on January 5, 1964 in Hollywood, CA to Jacob Soulam and Frances Linda Holcomb. She grew up in Los Angeles and later Salt Lake City and served a mission in the Peru Arequipa mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her Hollywood beginnings foreshadowed a long career in the film and television industry after graduating from Brigham Young University with a BA in Theater and Film in 1990. Roz worked on over 100 film and television productions as an actress and casting director. She appeared as a SAG actress in productions like “Touched By an Angel,” “Promised Land” and the motion picture “A Home of Our Own” starring Kathy Bates. Roz also did casting for large-scale film productions for her church including “Testaments,” “Lamb of God” and “The Restoration” (see link below for full filmography).
