Another JPMorgan Chase banker jumps to his death
Question of the Day
A JPMorgan Chase investment banker plunged to his death Monday from the roof of the bank’s 30-story headquarters in Hong Kong, according to reports.
“A sad and tragic incident occurred in Chater House, Hong Kong, which is currently being investigated by the police,” the company said in an emailed statement. The bank declined to give further detail “out of respect for those involved. Our thoughts and sympathy are with the family that’s involved at this difficult point of time,” Bloomberg reported.
The man, a 33-year-old Chinese investment banker, went to the roof shortly after lunch and jumped after talks with police failed, the New York Post reported.
This marks the second suicide of a JPMorgan banker this year.
On Jan. 28, Gabriel Magee, a 39-year-old vice president in technology operations, died after jumping from the bank’s 33-story tower in London.
And on Feb. 3, executive director Ryan Henry Crane, 37, was found dead inside his Stamford, Conn., home. His cause of death will not be determined until a toxicology report is complete, the Post reported.
