You have no evidence of any assets,ties,or savings in Jamaica and given all of the above I am not satisfied a short term visit is intended. i am therefore not satisfied that you are genuinely seeking entry as a general visitor for a limited period not exceeding 6 months of that you intend to leave the uk upon the completion of your visit.

He can apply again but he needs to produce proper documented evidence that he has a reason to return to Jamaica at the end of his stay. I..e proof he has a home there and a job to return to. you will also need to show evidence that he has adequate funds for his trip or a proper explanation as to why you are supporting him. you or he needs to deal with all the points of objection otherwise he will be refused again
