Albert Jaquier gave Scientology his all, and Scientology repaid him by leaving him to spend his last days alone, in ill-health, poverty and despair.
This article contains excerpts from the diary of my ex-husband, ALBERT JAQUIER. These entries are from 1994, the last year of his life. He died on December 11, 1994. He was 59 years old when he wrote these entries. He had completed OT7, which promises to make a person "Cause over life", he had been in the Scientology cult for 14 years, and had given his fortune of several million dollars. He had a heart condition, was physically incapable of working, and had had a stroke at the end of 1992. Shortly before his death he told me he did not think he would live very long and made me promise I would make his experiences publicly known so that others would not have to suffer in the same way. The original entries are in French, which I have translated. My explanations of his shorthand, and identification of the names involved, are in parentheses. While reading this it should be borne in mind that the picture here is of a man who had been pushed way beyond the limits of what anyone should be asked to suffer. It would be a great disservice to his memory if I did not indicate that, prior to losing his health, Albert had worked, and he routinely worked 16 and 18 hour days, seven days a week. That was how he had gotten from being a junkyard laborer to a self-made millionaire pre-Scientology. If he had been physically capable of working he would have tried to recover from or prevent his financial ruin. He was a warm-hearted and generous man, the proof is he LOANED over $1,000,000 to 11 Scientologists, without collateral, on the recommendations of other Scientologists and, at the time of his death, only one of them had repaid him.
The Scientologists who did not repay Albert, and the amounts he calculated they owed as of May 1994, are as follows:-
Amount owed as of May '94 CHRISTIAN BOSIGER OT8 $ 33,940 JODY DARLING OT7,PATRON MERITORIOUS $304,564 CHRISTIAN DELALEZE, SEA ORG MEMBER $ 12,120 ? LABRE, CLEAR $ 9,131 ? PESCE $ 731 ? PICHON, CLEAR $ 41,587 CLAUDE-ANDRE QUENNOZ, CLEAR $ 32,859 RENALD RACINE, ON OT7 $ 8,891 HANS-KASPAR RHYNER, OT5, PATRON MERITORIOUS $344,028 GIGI TROGLIO, OT7 $ 46,062
