Dr. Yesu Persaud CCH Death – Dr. Yesu Persaud CCH, our founder, leader, mentor, leader, and friend, passed away, and his loss is felt by the entire IPED family. While the list of Dr. Persaud’s accomplishments as a corporate leader and as a person is impressive, in the IPED family, he will be most remembered for his vision, which directly affected thousands of families throughout Guyana. In the most difficult of times Dr Persaud understood that it was necessary to find ways to recreate and nurture small and micro businesses in the country.
Private Enterprise Development Limited
While his business acumen is unchallenged Dr. Persaud’s greatest desire was to help people to help themselves. His grasp of business and his love for people were combined to create the Institute of Private Enterprise Development Limited, which is still functioning and assisting people today. Small and micro enterprises that needed funding and coaching were mostly in families. Dr Yesu Persaud has left the IPED family with a sustainable organisation and with a network of almost 5000 small and micro enterprises that are themselves sustainable.
Many of these companies are carrying out his mission every day by seizing every chance for expansion. As we extend our sincerest heartfelt condolences to his immediate family, they can be assured that Dr Yesu Persaud will forever be alive in businesses across the length and breadth of Guyana, with future generations paying tribute to him long after this generation, like him, falls silent. The IPED Board, Management, and Employees expressed sympathy

On Sunday, before his funeral, Lumberton High School officials and a friend of a recent graduate who died Monday in a vehicle tragedy paid tribute. The News Reporter stated that an N.C. Department of Transportation dump truck “failed to yield at an intersection” near Cerro Gordo killed Matthew Sessoms on Monday. J.C. Soles Jr. of Whiteville drove the truck. Soles was charged with misdemeanor automobile death and failing to yield. Matt played tennis and cross-country for Lumberton High. He was an FFA member.
Friends like Lydia Villagomez recall Sessoms for his kindness and encouragement. “Matthew was a very cheerful, thoughtful and joy-lifting boy. If you were ever in a room with him, you knew he was there, he would always have everyone smiling or laughing,” she told The Robesonian on Friday. Villagomez posted a memorial to her companion on Wednesday. “I love you Matthew. You were a close one to me. I’ll always strive to do things ‘for a great story to tell one day.’ Keep watching over us, we’re going to make you happy … You’ll always have a special place in my heart. I’ll see you again one day,” the post reads in part.
FFA adviser Jada Jackson paid tribute to Sessoms. “To live in the hearts of those we love is not to die,” she remarked. “Matthew loved everyone. He was courteous and friendly to many kids in my classes. He constantly had a smile and laughed. “Matt was the sweetest of souls—our FFA chapter and the Ag teachers are beyond grateful for the time we had Matt and the impact he has left on all of our hearts,” Jackson wrote. Lumberton High interim Athletic Director Adam Deese said Matt “was always a joy to be around and well mannered.” Principal Larry Brooks sent Sessoms’ family sympathy Friday. Brooks expressed his condolences on behalf of Lumberton High School administration and employees. He and other school leaders and employees planned to attend the visitation Sunday.
Floyd Mortuary & Crematory, Inc., 809 E. Fifth St., Lumberton, will have a pre-service reception on Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m. Pastor Jason Williams will officiate the chapel memorial service at 3 p.m. after the visitation. I’m sad for his family’s tragedy. Matthew is always with you and his family. Villagomez remarked, “He is now our guardian angel.” I pray for Matt’s friends and family. Jackson wrote, “Matt, you will always be in our hearts.” On Tuesday, the school asked the community to pray for Sessoms and his family. We offer our thoughts and prayers to Matthew Sessoms’ family. Yesterday, Matthew died. “He will always be part of Pirate Nation, and we will cherish his memory and love for our school,” the statement adds. The statement requests prayers for the Sessoms family.
