Dimon on cancer: 'It’s terrifying to hear' you have the disease

Jamie Dimon

JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon said cancer hasn’t altered his plans to keep working even as he looks toward a retirement that he hopes will include philanthropy and teaching.

'It’s terrifying to hear' you have the disease, Dimon said Tuesday at an event sponsored by the Urban Land Institute in New York, where JPMorgan is based. 'You feel worse and worse and worse, both emotionally and physically.'

Bloomberg News reports that Dimon, 58, who has led JPMorgan since 2006, is resuming public appearances after completing a round of treatment for throat cancer.

He opened Tuesday on topics including the global economy, saying Europe is 'the sick one,' while the U.S. has recovered fully from the 2008 credit crisis and that China will meet financial targets. He also gave his most candid remarks about his health and what life after JPMorgan will look like.
