Jacob Appalsamy attended J.B. Cropper School at Albion until age 14, where he excelled in all academic studies. Circumstances beyond his control made him leave school to work at the Albion Sugar Plantation where his father was the bookkeeper.

He worked as a young boy of 14 at the Albion Sugar Estate until he migrated to New York in 1980. Subsequently after, holding a few jobs liike book-binding for a big publisher he moved to Florida. A severe illness made him spend some years in a nursing home where he expired peacefully on July 16 2007 at about 7 o'clock in the morning.

Jacob was a meticulous person who took great pride in keeping a neat personal appearance. He was very frank, and had distinct opinions in which he shared freely. He enjoyed listening to hymns and loved to read his Bible especially the verse Psalms23. He loved country music such as Jim Reeves and Charlie Pride to name a few. He also loved old Indian music and songs from famous singers such as Muhamad Rafi, Pradeep and Mukesh to name a few.

Jacob [CR as he was affectionately known among friends] was very outgoing and loved to have family and friends over for company. He was very generous, and open minded. He was a family man and loved them very much [In his own way]. He was a good storyteller and comedian, telling old Guyanese jokes. In addition to this, he was a superb player of the harmonica, playing songs such as "Om Meri Sohani Sohani" and songs from "Dosti". In his boyhood days, he used to love to play practical jokes on his younger siblings with much detriment to them. He was also a singer for the Dil Bihar Orchestra in Albion, Guyana. He was a connoisseur of fine fine whiskey and tobacco.

In his native Guyana, he loved the outdoors and spent much time fishing. He also loved going to the cinema to see all latest Indian and English movies.

All who knew Jacob Appalsamy will surely miss his charismatic smile and warmth. He will be greatly missed.
