Update: 10th banker dead, added to banker deaths masterlist

Update: 9th Banker, 4th from JP Morgan

Another joins the head count

James Stuart Jr.

This is the 8th after the JP Morgan Banker Li (Lee?) Jun Jie in Hong Kong.

In 1969, Stuart joined Citibank in New York City and served as a loan officer until 1973, when he joined First Commerce Bancshares (then NBC Co.) as executive vice president. He was named president in 1976, chairman and CEO in 1978, and also became chairman and CEO of National Bank of Commerce in 1985.

Stuart spent much of his career with First Commerce Bancshares, a $3 billion multi-bank holding company headquartered in Lincoln. First Commerce was sold to Wells Fargo in 2000.

If you’re wondering why its 8 instead of 9, zerohedge followed intellihub which counted the tata motors MD which is not counted here as he comes from only Automobile companies and has no Bank in his previous jobs. (Furthermore, not even semi automobile loan facilities like say perhaps the Japanese counterparts it looks) TL;DR Tata motor death was a car maker not a banker, nor was a banker (but if you have more information to show otherwise, please leave a comment or drop an email) http://news.biharprabha.com/2014/01/who-was-karl-slym/

They have been dropping like flies

rounding up the previous,

Non stop banking related deaths…

And this makes 6th

Ryan Henry Crane JP Morgan New York Executive Director Global Program Trading

“Third: Crane was an Executive Director in JPM’s Global Program Trading desk, founded in 1999 by an ex-DE Shaw‘er, a function of the firm which is instrumental to preserving JPM’s impeccable and (so far in 2013) flawless trading record of zero trading losses.” – http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-02-12/another-jpmorgan-banker-dies-37-year-old-executive-director-program-trading

Of the previous 5

To Recap:

Richard Talley,57, CEO american title joins the 4 other dead bankers and exbankers. He used to be at Drexel Burnham Lambert. It seems American Title has something to do with the foreclosures, and perhaps even the bank robo signing? What is the ongoing investigation about?

The other dead hails from (seems like zurich had one too) Comms director, Swiss Re Ag, William Broeksmit Deutschebank, Gabriel Magee JPMorgan, Mike Dueker Former Federal Reserve Bank (Russell Investments)

Narrative 1: Credit Swaps Blowing up

Golemxiv suggests Credit Swaps derivatives being the reason for suicides

However, the American Title death involved 7-8 nails from a nail gun in his chest and head. Rather a stretch for a suicide.

Narrative 2: Bank Cartel hitmen silencing people in investigations

Wallstreetonparade suggests that the dead were all involved in investigations of some sort, and were either against the banks or were going to squeal. There was even a missing financial reporter…

Well, the plot thickens…

Another “Successful Banker” Found Dead

The dismal trail of dead bankers continues. As The Journal Star reports, a successful Lincoln businessman and member of a prominent local family died last week. Former National Bank of Commerce CEO James Stuart Jr. was found dead in Scottsdale, Ariz., the morning of Feb. 19. A family spokesman did not say what caused the death. This brings the total of banker deaths in recent weeks to 9 as Stuart is sadly survived by three sons and four daughters.

 

 

Mr Stuart’s background (via The Journal Star),

Stuart was a native of Lincoln and graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a degree in Business Administration.

 

In 1969, Stuart joined Citibank in New York City and served as a loan officer until 1973, when he joined First Commerce Bancshares (then NBC Co.) as executive vice president. He was named president in 1976, chairman and CEO in 1978, and also became chairman and CEO of National Bank of Commerce in 1985. Stuart spent his life building the organization into an important business voice in Lincoln, friend and colleague Brad Korell said.

 

“He was a very successful banker,” said Korell, who worked with Stuart for more than 30 years. “I always felt that he was a visionary. He really did build one of the most successful and admired banking organizations in the Midwest.”

 

Stuart spent much of his career with First Commerce Bancshares, a $3 billion multi-bank holding company headquartered in Lincoln. First Commerce was sold to Wells Fargo in 2000.

 

He is a former member of the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission and was appointed by Gov. Dave Heineman to the board of the Nebraska Environmental Trust in 2008. Stuart was also involved with natural resources-related groups such as Nature Conservancy, Ducks Unlimited and U.S. National Forest Foundation.

 

He served on the international board of the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation and the boards of the University of Nebraska Foundation and Nebraska Wesleyan University.

 

According to Korell, Stuart was living in Scottsdale, overlooking his family’s financial investments, as well as golfing and fishing.

Which brings the total number of recent banker deaths to 9 (via Intellihub):

1 – William Broeksmit, 58-year-old former senior executive at Deutsche Bank AG, was found dead in his home after an apparent suicide in South Kensington in central London, on January 26th.

2- Karl Slym, 51 year old Tata Motors managing director Karl Slym, was found dead on the fourth floor of the Shangri-La hotel in Bangkok on January 27th.

5 – Richard Talley, the 57 year old founder of American Title Services in Centennial, Colorado, was found dead earlier this month after apparently shooting himself with a nail gun.

6 -Tim Dickenson, a U.K.-based communications director at Swiss Re AG, also died last month, however the circumstances surrounding his death are still unknown.

7 – Ryan Henry Crane, a 37 year old executive at JP Morgan died in an alleged suicide just a few weeks ago.  No details have been released about his death aside from this small obituary announcement at the Stamford Daily Voice.
