Skip to comments.Another Sudden Death of JPMorgan Worker: 34-Year Old Jason Alan Salais
Posted on 03/05/2014 7:33:13 AM PST by Renfield
On the evening of Sunday, December 15 of last year, six weeks before the onset of the latest rash of tragic deaths of young men in their 30s employed at JPMorgan, the Pearland, Texas police received a call of a person in distress outside a Walgreens pharmacy at 6122 Broadway in Pearland. The individual in distress was Jason Alan Salais, a 34-year old Information Technology specialist who had worked at JPMorgan Chase since May 2008.
A family member confirmed to Wall Street On Parade that Salais died of a heart attack on the same evening the report of distress went in to the police. The incidence of heart attack or myocardial infarction among men aged 20 to 39 is one half of one percent of the population, according to the National Center for Health Statistics and National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, based on 2007 to 2010 data, marking this as another unusual death at JPMorgan.
A person identifying himself as Dave Steiner wrote the following about Salais in the online condolence book provided by the funeral home: My condolences to your entire family at the sudden passing of Jason. When I had the pleasure of interviewing Jason to be a part of the team at J.P. Morgan back in 2008, it was clear to me within just a few short minutes that he was a man of character, intelligence, work ethic, kindness and integrity. In the years that followed, and until the sad news of this week, I was witness to his hard work, the friendships he built, stories of his beloved family and of course baseball

I follow Dr. Farrell's blog regularly, and recommend it highly. Stay tuned.
I’m very familiar with how they run their IT. Probably not related to the other events. They have been doing “more with less” for a decade and work people to death. I’ve known several IT people there in similar medical situations.
Very high stress, long hours, and difficult work environment.
Why do people have a bizarre fascination with the deaths of people who work in an industry that employs hundreds of thousands?
The internet allows people with too much time on their hands to crank out all kinds of crackpot theories.
All deaths are, by definition, sudden.
but if not for bizarre crackpot theories, what would the “Giza Death Star” blog have to write about?
“Heart attack” is a little vague. Did the guy have vascular disease of his cardiac arteries (blocked arteries)? Did his heart just stop beating for some reason? What does the medical examiner say?
“The internet allows people with too much time on their hands to crank out all kinds of crackpot theories.”
Yep, and it seems those crackpot theories float all wind up getting posted here, sooner or later.
IT? Nah. Those guys just sit around and play COD all day. They answer the occasional phone call from some higher up who can’t get their pictures off their phone, but other than that it’s a huge LAN party. Just kidding. I worked for a company with offices all over the country. They thought they could do all the IT remotely so they fired all the local people. Then they made one of the civil engineers do the IT guy’s job and his own job.
So a Navy Commander is murdered, 2 seals “overdose on drugs”, 10 to 30 business people die, one shoots himself in the back with a nail gun multiple times,260 military officers removed form command and no one writes a book and few give explanations.
A lot of things end up going from conspiracy theory to conspiracy fact. Rigging of nearly all financial markets (except for the precious metals markets, of course) has now been admitted to and/or proved. Do you honestly believe that powerful elites never do, and never would, act to conceal their intent?
People die all the time, there are thousands and thousands of mundane deaths during the same time frame that, if you included them in your list, would make it all look pretty pedestrian.
Besides, if it was all so suspicious, you wouldn’t need to pretend that the guy shot himself in the back with a nail gun when he didn’t. Why exaggerate unless your case is weak?
And the nailgun-guy wasn’t even a “banker.” He worked for a title company.
“A lot of things end up going from conspiracy theory to conspiracy fact.”
Even more things just stay as conspiracy theories forever.
“Do you honestly believe that powerful elites never do, and never would, act to conceal their intent?”
No, just that it’s silly to believe conspiracy theories for which there is no evidence, especially if they don’t even make logical sense.
It’s funny, the bankers, the title companies, and even the IT guys must all be “in on it”. If there are more people “in on” the conspiracy than are “out”, then is it even a conspiracy anymore?
Vince Foster, Benghazi, Seal Team shot down in one plane, unexplained death... leads to a universal explanation that all deaths are natural and should be ignored.
My argument is weak because I do not know what is going on and am seeking an explanation. A reasonable explanation can be reached form listening to the far left and for right and the conspiracy theories on both sides. If you blindly look at only one side you will not see the truth.
Wonder if there is a suicide or sudden death watch on lois lerner? and in other news obama sends valerie an email with one word ... Yes! I decidedly do not have any idea what is going on.
Many IT shops these days are little more than ‘digital sweat shops’. I’ve been in the field for many years now, and I’m not sure I’d recommend it to someone starting out.
Careful ... mountain lion season may reopen.
“Vince Foster, Benghazi, Seal Team shot down in one plane, unexplained death... leads to a universal explanation that all deaths are natural and should be ignored.”
Nobody suggests that, you’re just exaggerating again.
“My argument is weak because I do not know what is going on and am seeking an explanation.”
Well, at least the argument is weak, which is more than a lot of the conspiracy mongers around here will cede to, so I give you credit for that.
“A reasonable explanation can be reached form listening to the far left and for right and the conspiracy theories on both sides.”
Can be? Or may be? I think it’s just as likely that listening to all these conspiracy theories will lead you down a bunch of blind allies and no closer to the truth.
I get my daily dose of crackpot on FR now, whether I like it or not, so I’m not going to go out of my way to get some more.
At FR, we, of course, know something bad is coming every day. Obama has 3 more years.
What about the ones that “commited suicide?”
If you threaten to report me to the Mod Squad, I can deliver...
Updating the list of Dead Bankers under “Working Theories”
Well, what doesn’t make sense about young professionals in a business facing criminal charges suddenly dying of things that young people don’t normally die of? Note that one “suicide” was of a person who somehow managed to inflict 7 or 8 different nail-gun insertions into his own body, in two different regions of his body. (Ruled a suicide.) If that isn’t at least slightly suspicious, I don’t know what else I could say.
“Well, what doesnt make sense about young professionals in a business facing criminal charges suddenly dying of things that young people dont normally die of?”
Seems sensible to me. Lot of people, professional or no, die all the time, even when they are facing criminal charges (or not, as it doesn’t seem to matter whether they are to be included in the conspiracy theory).
“Note that one suicide was of a person who somehow managed to inflict 7 or 8 different nail-gun insertions into his own body, in two different regions of his body. (Ruled a suicide.) If that isnt at least slightly suspicious, I dont know what else I could say.”
It would be more suspicious if he managed to kill himself with just one shot from a nail gun, since it’s not really the best choice of weapon for committing suicide. Would it be suspicious to you if someone had to cut themselves a dozen times before they managed to kill themselves with a nail file?
34-yr old heart attack. Uh huh!
I think it is quite important to have an open mind. Alex Jones has some good information but sometimes he is like Orwell’s 1984. A lot of people get depressed with the bad news so it is good to keep an eye on your mental health. No one can possibly be right on everything so no source should be trusted for everything. I will be looking for the book disinformation by the Russian defector. I think the information and methods should be interesting. Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear, but make it entertaining.
I knew (slightly) a guy it happened to. About the same age. A triathlete, even, but with a bad family history. His fiancée went out for a run, came back and found him dead. It happens.
I’m pretty sure, no matter what conspiracy theories might turn out to be true, that Alex Jones is either in it just for the money, or he is pushing disinformation for someone. Almost none of the material that guys puts out actually checks out or even makes much sense. He’s lampooning the people who are actually serious about this stuff and trying to find the truth.
I have been thinking about conspiracy theories and decided that they are a kind of adult cartoon. They are entertaining and almost harmless.
Yeah, sure, for the people that keep them in perspective. Some people don’t though, and their whole thought process seems to start devolving when they get too obsessed.
