You will always be one of my heroes,” tweeted New York salsa musician Willie Colon. Cheo Feliciano was born in the southern coastal city of Ponce and formed his first band when he was about 8, playing instruments made from cans, according to a February 2000 interview he gave online music site descarga.com. Feliciano’s father struggled to find work as a carpenter, and his family moved to New York when Feliciano was a teenager. Shortly after arriving, Feliciano joined a local band as a percussionist and became friends with music giants including Tito Puente. On Oct. 5, 1957, Feliciano married Prieto, a Puerto Rican dancer, and that night, gave his first concert as a singer with the Joe Cuba band. A decade later, he left the band and then collaborated with Eddie Palmieri on his album, “Champagne,” but succumbed to heroin addiction shortly afterward and withdrew from the spotlight for nearly three years. He returned to his native Puerto Rico for rehab, became a staunch anti-drug spokesman and joined the Fania All Stars in 1972. That same year, he released “Cheo,” a solo album that is considered one of his best. In the mid-1980s, he launched his own production company called Coche Records and produced five albums. To celebrate his 50 years as a musician, he performed in New York’s Madison Square Garden in 2008, singing alongside Palmieri and others including Papo Lucca and Ismael Miranda.

Man killed in single-car crash – The Washington Post
Building houses from the ground-up is all he had ever done, he said. After the accident, he spent about five years doing odd jobs. Hammer would apply for jobs, and hiring agents would look at his resume and say that his skills didn’t transfer, despite his associate’s degree in computer science. “People don’t want to give you a chance in a new field,” he said. “It was really hard on me emotionally because I really enjoyed my work.” Eventually, he found Sitel , aglobal customer care provider that provides support and billing assistance for major satellite companies. Sitel has a work-from-home platform for people in Hammer’s situation or who don’t live close to call centers. Hammer is now a customer service representative who can work from home. He did a training program to get him used to working with customers over the phone, and his at-home work allows him to take breaks and rehab his back when needed. The company began the program in 2009, but spokeswomanBrittany Boyer didn’t know exactly how many people participate in the program. Sitel employs 56,000 employees around the world in 123 countries. “It’s allowed me to set my own schedule,” he said. “It’s easier for doctors’ appointments. It’s a big stress reliever for me because I have anxiety, and if I have a stressful call, I can take a break.” In addition to providing opportunities for people like Hammer, the work-from-home platform allows the company to broaden its employee base, Boyer said. “Sitel has gotten some really good feedback,” she said. “It seems to be people across the country, and it has helped [the company] from a business perspective.” Obviously, a life-threatening accident changes a person’s life perspective, Hammer said. “You feel like nothing can happen to you, like you have everything figured out,” he said. “But then, something bad happens, and you realize how life is short. You could lose everything. It’s nice to have a company who is willing to give [people] a chance.”
