The life and times of Jimmy Lee

Wall Street sign

Few men ever master Wall Street. Jimmy Lee did.

Bloomberg News reports that from his table at the Four Seasons and his Park Avenue office, he launched hundreds of deals with five words: 'Let’s go see the guy'.

That was Jimmy-speak for let’s go cut a deal, let’s go make some money, let’s win them over with a blend of charm and sheer force of will. He was hard to resist. And he didn’t stop until he won.

'He was at the top of his profession', Carlyle Group co-founder and co-CEO David Rubenstein said Wednesday. 'He didn’t have to fly around the world to get the IPO, but he did. He was always trying'.

Lee, who died Wednesday at the age of 62, never found fame beyond the tight confines of the Street.
