A second JP Morgan employee has been found weeks after one fell from the bank's London headquarters.

Ryan Crane, 37, who worked at the bank's New York office for 14 years as executive director of a stock-trading team, died on 3 February at his Stamford, Connecticut home.

News of the fatality was broken on the website of Leo P. Gallagher & Son Funeral Home in Greenwich, Connecticut.

A toxicology in about six weeks' time will reveal the cause of Crane's death, news of which was met with shock.

A JPMorgan spokesman told Bloomberg News: "Ryan was a beloved colleague who will be dearly missed. Our thoughts and sympathy are with his family and friends."

He was known as a "gentle giant" by friends and family, according to the funeral home's death notice.

Crane started at JPMorgan trading equities after he had graduated from Harvard University in 1999, according to his LinkedIn profile.

At the time of his death he worked as an executive director in the bank's Americas Program Trading group.
