JP Morgan Executive Falls to his Death from JP Morgan Building, in What May Have Been Suicide

JP Mprhan suicideA 39-year-old man is believed to have jumped to his death from JP Morgan Chase’s European headquarters in London this morning.

The man is thought to have been an executive at America’s largest bank. Scotland Yard confirmed to the Daily Beast that they were not treating the fall as suspicious and said “there was no suggestion” that someone had trespassed onto the Canary Wharf premises.

Office workers in London’s Docklands financial district said they had seen the man’s body on a roof deck at the ninth floor level of the 33-story building. “Sad scene. Someone jumped/fell at JPMorgan Canary Wharf. A sorry view from my desk,” said Andrew Lawrence, who works in a nearby office, on Twitter.

Jamie Dimon’s Wall Street powerhouse reportedly introduced “protected weekends” last month that would allow staff one-weekend off per month after concerns that JP Morgan staff were working harder than those at other Wall Street firms, which had attempted to ease the hours. “When we looked at the rest of the Street, we really hadn’t properly kept pace,” a source told New York magazine.
