Investment banking firm JP Morgan’s CEO Jamie Dimon told staff Tuesday that he has throat cancer.
“The good news is that the prognosis from my doctors is excellent, the cancer was caught quickly, and my condition is curable,” Dimon, CEO of the bank since 2005, said in a note to staff.
Dimon said the disease will require about eight weeks of radiation and chemotherapy treatment, CNBC reports.
“I feel very good now and will let all of you know if my health situation changes,” he said.
Dimon steered JP Morgan through the financial crisis but met with controversy after the bank was involved in a scandal in 2012, leading to billions of dollars in losses and calls for Dimon’s ouster. The notoriously blunt bank chairman was criticized for calling the fiasco a “tempest in a teapot.”
