Importance: High

What’s up guys,

So tonight is going to be wild… ReUnion Bar on 17th and Park Ave @ 10pm. A link to view pics of the lounge is below in the original email so check it out the place is really classy. We already have 100+ JPMC interns who accepted the invite, so tonight will be a great opportunity to check out everyone and have an awesome time. Keep spreading the word, keep telling everyone and anyone who is not on this list and who doesn’t work for JPMC. You don’t want to miss out on this, trust me.

If there are 100+ interns from around the area who come and talk to me, this will be a huge every week party at different lounges of choice all free of cover. The bigger the crowd, the more discounted drinks, the more fun for all of us. Also, there will be events Fridays and Saturdays if tonight goes well and you all show interest in it.

ReUnion is not strict on IDs so if you have a fake you will be fine. If you don’t have an ID… get one! Sorry about that, I will push for black ‘X’s’ next time so those without IDs can come hangout, since I want you all to have a great time this summer.


ReUnion Bar on 17th and Park Ave
Free cover
100+ new friends

Don’t miss out! Tell everyone, it’s going to get wild.

AT THE DOOR SAY YOU ARE WITH “InternParties”… see you all tonight at the Pizza Party, and then at ReUnion!

To all,

My apologies for spam, but I have realized this is not the place to use company time to talk about after work events. Although I would like all of you to enjoy your summers, I will be reaching you from my other email, after work hours from now on. In no means did I intend to go against code of conduct, and that was my own fault which will not happen again. I know some of you interns are not 21, so remember to think and be smart and it is 21+ to drink…underage activity is illegal. Thank you and enjoy the rest of your afternoons. See you at the pizza party.

Favorite Parts:
* Importance: High
* Underlining and bolding the section on fake ID’s
* “If you don’t have an ID… get one!”
* “It’s going to get wild”
* “underage activity is illegal”
* “See you at the pizza party”
* Remaining calm and continuing to encourage people to just come out and have fun long after the wheels have come off the whole ‘invite’ thing
* Internally repeating the phrase “this is still salvageable”
* Everything

Note: Do not put this kid’s name in the comments section. It will be deleted and I will hunt you down (and you will not like it)!

Update: and there’s a Part III:

Subject: Tonight 21+ @ ReUnion


Disregard anything you heard, Tonight is 21+ only… that is, 21+. ReUnion is a classy venue and it will be a great time for us all to hangout. InternParties is hosting this great event. ReUnion is not a pushover bar, I am sorry for the rumors that spread, it is 21+ see you all there, enjoy.

    At GS these sort of character flaws tend to be caught around interview #20 or #21.  

    • "guest" says:

      At GS you just run out for 20 minutes, do an 8-ball off your hooker’s ass crack, smack her and throw her a few Benjamins, and then you get back to the fucking office and do God’s muthafuckin’ work. None of this lollygagging around at some faggoty intern party where you “get wild” with some Jaegger shots and roll in late the next morning. And THAT is why JP Morgan will always – in the end – kiss my ring and wash my balls.


  29. Also A Guest says:

    Apparently JPM doesn’t follow the DES interview model. No way this guy makes it past “How do I know you’re a genius?”

    • Guest says:

      So am I going to Union bar or Reunion bar tonight? 

      • Anonymous says:

        Looks like Union Bar renamed itself ReUnion although given this kid’s apparent level of intellect it is possible he misread an email entitled “Re: Union Bar.”

        • invited but not an intern says:

          The event is now “cancelled” but I think it’s just that– “cancelled.”

    I don’t understand the point of this story, unless you’re keen to get a 20-year-old fired from his internship.

    I bet this kid is going to be a massive baller. He has the social skills, needs to work on his confidence a bit though, everyone knows you never wuss out outrageous emails with appologetic corporate banter.

  45. Same Old Same Old says:

    During the intern’s interview I bet some JPM asshole asked him/her what the square root of 69 is.

  46. Anon says:

    He refers to JPMorgan Chase as JPMC. Consult the style guide.

  47. Guest says:

    Underlining and bolding a comment in your email, then apologizing for “rumors” of the content of such underlined and bolded words is the NKI.

    why is DB picking on a poor intern and screwing up his career.

    • Bess Lumpkin says:


    • SRH says:

      wow, really? 

      1) everyone at JPM (read: his bosses, i.e. the people who could fire him) knew about this prior to it being on DB. if he was going to get fired (which I don’t believe he has), it would’ve happened with or without the post.
      2) does his name appear on this post? if you didn’t work at JPM/see the email, would you be able to identify who he is and “ruin” his career (you seem slow, so the answer is: no).

    • Guest says:

      right, because DB draft the “get your fake ID’s email!!!” and then sent it out to all of JPM from this kid’s email address….

      oh, wait.

      • Gggg says:

        Interning at JPM and is promoting an intern rager..this is clearly a dead ringer for the Chase debit card kid.

    • Guest says:

      DB is picking on the poor intern, but I’m pretty sure he screwed up his own career.

      • Guest says:

        you seem to have a broad definition of “picking on”…pretty fucking kind of DB to not use his name and not allow others to name him, meaning that unless you received this email yourself, you’d have no idea who he was.

        • Guest says:

          Compare Bess posting about the snotty fuckwit with real behavior issues on the train to posting about this misguided fuckwit who just needed guidance.

          Bess is being extremely fair. No complaints.

          • DE says:

            yep, couldn’t agree more. I’ll probably get call out as an ass-kisser but I’ve always thought BL’s editorial judgement/fairness/etc is beyond reproach. 

          • Guest says:

            Junior dodged a real bullet though and should definitely send Bess lunch, flowers and a man-servant to clean up after her and deliver DB fleeces.

          • Guest says:

            Much better, even, than a lot of the “serious” news publications that repost her primary work after she breaks a story. 

        • Guest says:

          agreed. if this is “picking on,” cry me a river. (and obviously, yes, the kid did all this himself.)

  53. Guy in Lycra Bunny Suit says:

    Bess, while I’d never out this kid, the idea of you hunting me down is titilating to say the least.  I’m at Minetta’s.  Come and get me.  Let’s set it off, baby girl.

  54. Steven Black says:

    There is no question in my mind that:

    1) This person is gonezo and will made an example of in future code of conduct training


    2) The individuals who stood behind him/her aren’t feeling too good about this

  55. Jamie says:

    I know the person’s name (just made one of the interns give it to me, the name that is), I’ll send it out when I get home from the office

  56. Packer says:

    Yeah, I got the email too. Back office NOOBS.

    • Guest says:

      you got the email that every single person at jpm received directly or was forwarded? wow. big time.

  57. DrBombay says:

    This qualifies as news?

  58. guest says:

    This probably wasn’t even written by an intern.  Probably a first year VP who has lost touch with reality and wants to be buddies with the new kiddies.

    I think point of knocking DB is that a private issue within JPM is easier for bosses of this poor bastard to overlook than one that is now the subject of an article and more than 100 comments; DB do the kid a favor and delete this entire article/comments.

    • GuestGuest says:

      you’re an idiot- he was most certainly dealt with the second the email went out, before the post went up.

    • I <3 BL says:

      not one person liked this FTW!

    • Guest says:

      I appreciate your empathy for the kid, but sorry- at a massive public company like JPM, the second this kid used his corporate email to send out an invite for his fellow interns to get smashed and encouraged people to use fake ID’s, he was done for it. the email went viral within the firm (prior to making it to DB; I work at JPM and got it) and there was no way they were not going to make an example of him. He was going to get the ax with or without the DB story.

    • CT says:

      There was no way in HELL the corporate drones in HR were going to overlook this. The kid was toast the second it went out. DB’s post had zero effect either way.
