Unnatural Death #13: JP Morgan Bankruptcy Lawyer Killed While Cycling

Another JPMorgan employee has died an unnatural death. This is unnatural death number 5 at JPMorganChase, since the first of the year, and unnatural death number 13 in the financial industry. I still don't see a close connection to all these deaths, but they keep on coming. (SEE: A Closer Look at Young Worker Deaths at JPMorgan Chase) in Columbus, OH reports on death #13:
A 56-year-old Dublin man was killed Saturday morning when he was struck by a car in Miami County.

Joseph Giampapa was riding alone on Troy-Sidney Road when he was struck by a car at about 11:08 a.m. Saturday morning.

The driver of the car called 911 and Miami County Sheriff deputies responded to the scene. Giampapa was found lying in the driveway of a home located in the 6500 block of Troy-Sidney Road in Springcreek Township.

He was pronounced dead at the scene by medic personnel.

Deputies say Giampapa was taking part in a 200 mile bike ride with a bicycle club named Ohio Randonneurs.

Their route started in Springfield and went through Troy, then reversed course.  Deputies believe Giampapa was on his return trip when the crash occurred.

"Joe was an extremely accomplished cyclist a responsible cyclist and that's what makes this tragedy so mind numbing," said Jeff Stephens, a friend of Giampapa. "That road that Joe was on was flat. No trees. It was just wide open visibility."
Giampapa was a vice president and assistant general counsel at JP Morgan Chase & Co.

  1. I may have some insight into the connection. All thirteen were employed in the financial services sector.

  2. I work at chase I have looked everyone of them up lets just say I have access to view all of this stuff, the odd thing is nothing was ever put in to remove stuff from their ID's however they were removed from the company "phonebook"

    1. I think that would be truly creepy if they were removed from the phonebook before they died
