Born on October 18, 1938, in Bauang La Union, Philippines, he was the son of Blas Sr. and Martina (Orpilla) Causapin.

Jaime graduated medical school from Southwestern University, Cebu City, Philippines, in September 1970, and completed his residency program, specializing in general surgery. He married his soulmate, Edna (Pardilla) Causapin on December 14, 1978, and they had four wonderful children.

In 1984, Jaime and his family started a new journey by moving to America, seeking the American dream for his children. They lived in Bronx, NY, for nine years before moving to Palm Bay, FL, in 1989.

Jaime was a devout Christian, who had a passion for helping and teaching others about Jesus Christ. Jaime was a kind and loving man who led his life by example, which greatly influenced his children. He was an active member of the Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church in Melbourne, in which he taught Sunday school, acted as an usher, visited the elderly and sick, and brought his family to church retreats. This active participation continued in his membership in the Filipino American Ministry at the First United Methodist Church of Melbourne.

Jaime was also a member of the Free Masons of the Philippines and served as a Worshipful Master with multiple recognitions before transferring his membership to Melbourne Lodge No143.
