Jimmy Lee’s “force of personality” and relentlessness made him an executive who always got deals done, former General Electric chief Jack Welch said Thursday, a day after the unexpected death of the 62-year-old JPMorgan vice chairman.
“It is with deep sorrow and a heavy heart that I inform you that our beloved friend and colleague, Jimmy Lee, unexpectedly passed away this morning,” JPMorgan Chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon said in a statement. “Jimmy was a great friend, leader and mentor to me and so many others.”
James B. Lee Jr. led the company’s investment banking arm, and was known for his work on the syndicated loan market among other things.
He oversaw major mergers and acquisitions deals including the sale of General Electric assets, the General Motors and Alibaba IPOs (the two largest U.S. IPOs ever), the United-Continental merger and the Comcast-NBCUniversal merger, according to a company spokesman.
