JP Morgan names IT exec who died after falling from bank’s Canary Wharf tower

A JP Morgan employee who fell to his death from the bank’s London office in Canary Wharf has been named as Gabriel Magee, an American vice president in the corporate and investment bank technology business.

Magee, who, according to his LinkedIn profile was a lead architect responsible for the development and operation of systems for fixed income securities and interest rate derivatives at JP Morgan, also worked at Intel as an application developer for three years before joining the bank in 2004, working in New York and London.

He fell from the top of the 33-floor building in the capital’s financial district yesterday morning, landing on a ninth-floor roof. The 39-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.

A JP Morgan spokesperson said: "We are deeply saddened to have lost a member of the JP Morgan family at 25 Bank Street today. Our thoughts and sympathy are with his family and his friends."

The JP Morgan building was previously occupied by Lehman Brothers, which left Canary Wharf after filing for bankruptcy in September 2008. JP Morgan made the building its EMEA headquarters in July 2012.
