JPMorgan's Dimon to resume international travel after cancer treatment

Globe

JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon said he plans to resume travel outside the U.S. after completing eight weeks of treatment for throat cancer.

'The prognosis is what it was before, which is excellent,' Dimon, 58, said Tuesday in a conference call with reporters. 'But obviously I’m in that stage of monitoring, etcetera, and so I see the doctor periodically.'

Bloomberg News reports that Dimon disclosed July 1 that he would begin two months of radiation and chemotherapy to treat the disease. The CEO has been working at the New York-based bank while being treated, and made Lee Raymond, JPMorgan’s lead director, available if managers needed guidance while he was away.

Last week, Dimon made his first public appearance since July at a panel discussion on the banking industry, looking thinner than before his treatments began. While he has gotten extra rest during chemotherapy, he is easing back into his regular travel schedule, Dimon said Tuesday.
