A Wall Street recruiter leaped to her death Monday morning from her luxury Upper East Side home, sources told The New York Post.
Sad to report.
The newspaper reports that Lindsay Jacoby, 40, a mother of two, jumped at around 10:30 a.m. from the fourth-floor roof of 12 Henderson Place, a historic brick home located on an enclave between East 86th and 87th streets, the sources said.
It’s unclear whether she left a note.
A man who said Lindsay was his daughter screamed in “agony” after finding out she had jumped, according to passersby.
“It was really harrowing. He screamed and screamed. We thought he was having a heart attack. He came out of the building and said to call 911. But he was clutching his heart,” said Jeffrey B.
“It wasn’t until the police showed up that we realized it was a suicide.”
It’s a nice neighborhood, “but there are demons everywhere,” another passerby added.
Bloomberg News reports that Jacoby joined Oppenheimer & Co in November 2016, according to her LinkedIn profile. She held a similar role for about eight years starting in 2007 at JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s asset management unit. She also ran her own recruiting firm, Jacoby Staffing, in New York, according to its website. The firm placed individuals in banks and financial institutions.
