Posted on 02/24/2014 6:17:24 PM PST by Nachum
The dismal trail of dead bankers continues. As The Journal Star reports, a successful Lincoln businessman and member of a prominent local family died last week. Former National Bank of Commerce CEO James Stuart Jr. was found dead in Scottsdale, Ariz., the morning of Feb. 19. A family spokesman did not say what caused the death. This brings the total of banker deaths in recent weeks to 9 as Stuart is sadly survived by three sons and four daughters.
Mr Stuart's background (via The Journal Star),
Stuart was a native of Lincoln and graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a degree in Business Administration.
In 1969, Stuart joined Citibank in New York City and served as a loan officer until 1973, when he joined First Commerce Bancshares (then NBC Co.) as executive vice president. He was named president in 1976, chairman and CEO in 1978, and also became chairman and CEO of National Bank of Commerce in 1985. Stuart spent his life building the organization into an important business voice in Lincoln, friend and colleague Brad Korell said.
He was a very successful banker, said Korell, who worked with Stuart for more than 30 years. I always felt that he was a visionary. He really did build one of the most successful and admired banking organizations in the Midwest.
Stuart spent much of his career with First Commerce Bancsha

Dead Pool updated
Arkancide...or similar from the Chicago bunch
They’re dropping like flies!
How did he die?
Did he keep falling down his one flight of stairs?
He must have seen something...
One article said a lot of them were involved in foreign exchange. I wonder if Soros or someone else made some bad bets on foreign exchange and are taking it out on these bankers.
Sadly, their show was sub-prime.
this meme has jumped the shark. Is Zero Hedge just going to go through the obituaries and find anyone who ever worked at a bank, imply it’s all connected and never be responsible for citing even the slightest connection?
Maybe. Maybe not.
BOMBSHELL: Dead JPM bankers Knew each other and had uncovered something
Wednesday we reported that another JP Morgan banker has been found dead, as the latest banker to meet a sudden and untimely demise is Ryan Henry Crane, the Executive Director in JPMorgans Global Equities Group.
Today, Steve Quayles banker source V, who predicted that a wave of banker hits was imminent when the very first bankers began dropping last week, has dropped a bombshell regarding the death of Ryan Henry Crane.
V states that Crane oversaw all of the trade platforms and worked closely with Gabriel Magee of JPMs London desk (who fell 32 stories off the JPM London roof moments after texting his g/f he would be home shortly), and that the pair had access to the exact same info.
V concludes Crane & Magee: Knew each other and had uncovered something.
Vs update on the latest JPMorgan banker to turn up dead is below:
From Steve Quayles banker source V
One other thing he was the head at the program trading desk. Meaning he over saw all of the trades and was familiar with all of the software (trade platforms) that these trades were done in. This job works closely with guess what? Thats right the London desk and who died last week in London? Thats right Gabriel Magee the one who jumped off the 33rd floor. What was his post? Head of IT and trade platforms meaning he had access to info that Ryan Henry Crane would have.
They knew each other and uncovered something they were about the same age and these hits happen when two big announcements by JPM.
1. They are out of commodities, and
2. The wholesale selling of their HQ downtown to the Chinese.
If we had real investigative reporters, we might have some answers. Of course, the reporters might end up dead, too, or at least audited by the IRS.
Bankers and Navy Seals dyin’ all over the place.
9??? Gee, they aren’t bothering with inconspicuousness, now are they?

The latest figure I can find is 11.3 per 100,000 population.
How many bank executives?
I don’t know, but there has to be way over 100,000 if you are going to count every bank in every town in the USA.
All of which have multiple bank officers.
That said, I am convinced that there is going to be a seismic collapse in the banking industry and not too far in the future.
....looks like Joe Isuzu......
Of course you can find a connection between bankers and bankers' scandals. Doesn't mean it's causative.
The latest figure I can find ON SUICIDE is 11.3 per 100,000 population.
More like the guy from Benson.
The bankers must be on to Obama’s plan to destroy the dollar, so they must be silenced at all cost.
I think the number of bankers at these guys level is closer to 10,000 than 100,000.
I wasn’t looking at seismic collapse in the banking industry, so much as total collapse of the US dollar.
Total collapse of the USD.
....and movie stars...
Heck, they have 100,000 VPs or above just at one large bank.
These guys are corporate level dudes.
He was heavily invested in Bitcoins.
If your guess is correct, then the number of recent suicides is of concern because it is already approaching 10 times the statistical norm.
As for what will collapse, I would think that either would bring on the other.
They need to learn how to survive, i.e., trust no one.
This may seem white collar to banker, but they don’t know what they’re dealing with.
New world order plays for keeps; they are dead serious (obviously).
Thanks for post #15.
Banking is a very hazardous profession these days! I am glad I chose being an engineer working with energetic materials (explosives) instead.
Lol! Beat me to it!
Ah, might as well... Jump!
This one is tougher to include in the suicide rash. The guy didn’t wake up. He was 70 years old. I am not willing to include this on the list until further information comes out
IDK. If he was in New York or London or Hong Kong, I’d believe he was #9. But Lincoln Nebraska isn’t exactly the center of the financial world. Sometimes middle-aged guys do get heart attacks and strokes.
“He really did build one of the most successful and admired banking organizations....
So did Bernie Madoff, until he got caught.
JPMorgan To Fire Thousands
It turns out that they didnt fire enough and/or that the housing market contraction was far worse than even the banks, in their most, pessimistic forecasts, had expected. Case in point: JPMorgan, which after firing 15,000 in its mortgage business, has just revealed it will fire thousands more.
Wasn’t Adam Lanza’s dad connected to the Libor Scandal?
I remember those reports.
Nice try. The picture of the person posted here is actor James Noble who played The Governor on the TV comedy series “Benson.”
I read that Adam’s dad was set to testify before congress about the Libor Scandal. And then well....everyone got distracted. Plus, I heard one time (but cannot even cite the source, may not be anything) - that the Sandy Hook shooter’s dad was also connected to the Libor Scandal.
Really, I do not wear a tin foil hat. I wear a cowboy hat.
That pic is being used all over the internet-
