Family First, According to Dad
Jimmy Lee, vice chairman of JP Morgan Chase, died unexpectedly Wednesday at age 62.
In 2001, he turned down a chance to run Blackstone, the giant private equity firm. Lee said turning the job down cost him “billions, literally” but would have meant missing his three kids’ sports games. “Family first, no matter what” became his motto. He spoke often about juggling family and career, saying it was doable if you planned ahead.
