Two JPMorgan professionals among 6 killed in train crash


Yet more tragedy.

Aditya Tomar, a JPMorgan Chase & Co. vice president for technology supporting the bank’s asset-management team, was among the six people killed in the February 3 commuter train accident in New York’s Westchester County. He was 41.

Bloomberg News reports that his death was confirmed in an e-mailed statement from the Manhattan-based bank. Tomar, an Indian-born resident of Danbury, Connecticut, was riding in the front carriage when the train hit a sport-utility vehicle that was stopped on the tracks at a crossing in Valhalla. The first carriage of the train was completely burned out.

Bloomberg also reports that Joseph Nadol, a JPMorgan Chase managing director who ranked as one of the top analysts covering the aerospace and defense industries, was also among the six people killed in the train crash. He was 42.

Nadol, who lived in Ossining, New York, was in the front of the train on Feb. 3 when it hit a sport-utility vehicle at a railroad crossing in Valhalla. The train’s first carriage was completely burned out.

Eric Vandercar, who managed municipal funding during a 27-year career at Morgan Stanley before joining Mesirow Financial one year ago, was also among the six people killed. He was 53.
