Use of the word unlike


I am unable to figure out which is wrong with my sentence. Can anyone please suggest an improvement?

See example:

But unlike Jacob he was conscious about himself

I agree with Mr. Sanjay.


In this sentence the word "unlike" tells that Jacob was not conscious about himself.


It can be extended in this way:


He was not like Jacob but he was consious about himself.


Though I used the word "about", it doesn't sound me to be right.


Anybody help please!

Use a parenthetical phrase (an aside): But, unlike Jacob, he was concious about himself.
