The death marks the second time this year that a JPMorgan employee has apparently killed himself. In January, 39-year-old Gabriel Magee died after falling from the top of JPMorgan’s 33-story skyscraper in London. Local authorities have described that death as “non-suspicious.”

Earlier this month, another JPMorgan employee at its New York office was discovered deceased in his Connecticut home. The cause of the 37-year-old’s death remains undisclosed.

Last month, Karl Slym, the managing director at India’s Tata Motors (TTM) died after falling from the 22nd floor of a hotel in Thailand where he was staying with his wife. Local authorities described the incident as a potential suicide.

JPMorgan stock fell almost 1% in Wednesday morning trading.
