Jamie Dimon says he struggled with cancer disclosure

Jamie Dimon

Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan, said on Monday that he struggled with having to publicly disclose in July that he had throat cancer.

Reuters reports that Dimon, speaking at an annual JPMorgan conference on healthcare, said he had little choice but to go public with his illness because his condition had deteriorated noticeably. He lost 35 pounds during his cancer fight, which included chemotherapy and radiation treatment.

Dimon, 58, said at the conference that he thought more deeply about healthcare after becoming ill. 'It took a village to take care of just me', he said.
