Mr. Staley, a former top executive of JPMorgan’s investment bank, became chief executive in December 2015, replacing Antony Jenkins. Jes has nearly four decades of extensive experience in banking and financial services. He worked for more than 30 years at JPMorgan Chase, initially training as a commercial banker, and later advancing to the leadership of major businesses involving Equities, Private Banking and Asset Management, and ultimately heading the company’s global Investment Bank. Most recently, Jes served as Managing Partner at BlueMountain Capital. Before joining Barclays in 2015, Staley was an executive at JP Morgan, where Jeffrey Epstein was already a client. Staley has previously said he developed a professional relationship with Epstein in 2000, and has admitted maintaining contact for seven years after Epstein was convicted of soliciting prostitution involving a minor in 2008. Staley said their contact began to taper off from 2013, when he left JP Morgan, but he visited Epstein’s private island in 2015. Jes holds a BA in Economics from Bowdoin College.
