A 33-year-old JPMorgan investment banker leaped to his death Tuesday from the roof of the bank’s 30-story Hong Kong office.
The New York Post reports that the banker, whose identify is being withheld pending notification of next of kin, recently told a colleague he was under heavy work-related stress, a police investigator said.
Shortly after lunch on Tuesday, the banker went to the roof of the downtown building. Police came to the building and tried unsuccessfully to talk him out of jumping, according to one local report.
Gabriel Magee, 39, a vice president with the JPMorgan’s corporate and investment bank technology arm in the UK, is said to have jumped to his death from the roof of the bank’s 33-story Canary Wharf tower in London last month.
And on February 3rd, Ryan Henry Crane, 37, a JPMorgan Executive Director who worked in New York, was found dead inside his Stamford, Conn., home.
A cause of death in Crane’s case will not be determined until a toxicology report is complete, according to a spokesperson for the Stamford detectives division.
The report is expected within five weeks.
