Sun

JPMorgan’s Jimmy Lee was remembered as a tough competitor, a favourite golfing partner and a 'force of nature'.

Bloomberg News reports that widely credited as the architect of the modern-day syndicated loan market and one of Wall Street’s top dealmakers, Lee died Wednesday morning at age 62.

'Jimmy played a critical role in Facebook’s history. He believed in us long before many others did – when we were a small company with little revenue he told us and anyone else who would listen how much potential he thought Facebook had', Sheryl Sandberg, chief operating officer of Facebook, wrote in a post on the social network.

'Jimmy was a terrific friend, a fierce competitor and a very proud father. He will be deeply missed', said Gary Cohn, president of Goldman Sachs.
