Jamie Dimon discharged from hospital and doing very well, JPMorgan tells staff

  • JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon has been discharged from the hospital where he was recovering from an emergency heart surgery.
  • “We are delighted to share with you the good news that Jamie left the hospital today and is back at home,” the bank’s co-Presidents, Gordon Smith and Daniel Pinto, said Thursday in a staff memo.
  • A week ago, Dimon, 63, suffered chest pains and checked himself into a hospital, where he was diagnosed with an acute aortic dissection, or a tear in the lining of a crucial blood vessel branching off the heart.

JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon has been discharged from the hospital where he was recovering from an emergency heart surgery.

“We are delighted to share with you the good news that Jamie left the hospital today and is back at home,” the bank’s co-Presidents, Gordon Smith and Daniel Pinto, said Thursday in a staff memo. “While we do not plan to provide regular updates about this, we want you to know that his doctors said he is doing very well in all aspects of his recovery. He is in good spirits and looking forward to reengaging with our team soon.”

A week ago, Dimon, 63, suffered chest pains and checked himself into a hospital, where he was diagnosed with an acute aortic dissection, or a tear in the lining of a crucial blood vessel branching off the heart. He apparently caught the condition before it worsened, and last week doctors expected the CEO to “fully recover,” a person briefed on the situation told CNBC.

JPMorgan, the biggest U.S. bank by assets, has been led by co-presidents Daniel Pinto and Gordon Smith in Dimon’s stead. While Dimon is widely expected to return this year, his health scare last week has sparked discussion about potential successors.
