Exec Plunges To Death From JP Morgan Skyscraper
by News

Gabriel Magee, vice president in Technology at JP Morgan Chase's London offices, plunged to his death Tuesday from the banking giant's riverfront skyscraper in London, reports from British news outlets say.

Magee, 39, was a senior manager in in the investment bank's technology department. An American, Magee had been with the company since 2004 and moved to London in 2007.

"We are deeply saddened to have lost a member of the J.P. Morgan family at 25 Bank Street today. Our thoughts and sympathy are with his family and his friends," says JP Morgan Chase spokeswoman Jennifer Zuccarelli.

Magee, who had received favorable work reviews and an annual bonus, fell from the 33-story tower in the city's Canary Wharf section and was found on a roof belonging to the widening base of the building nine stories up, according to The London Daily Mail.

Scotland Yard was reportedly called to the scene about 8 a.m. local time. Detectives are not treating the death as suspicious, London media reports.

Witnesses reported seeing the covered body lying on the roof for at least four hours before authorities removed it.
