According to an email circulating from Christopher Harvey, JPMorgan's "Senior Country Officer in Japan," to colleagues.

When I walked into the packed Sky Hall at lunchtime today and heard applause, I briefly thought it might be for me. Turns out it was for the hundred pizzas coming in behind me! Thanks to Jamie and Judy Dimon for the longest-distance pizza delivery in history. And someone definitely violated the two-slice rule.

‎​Colleagues from around the globe are heading here to pitch in. In addition to Jamie, we will be seeing Matt Zames, Kevin Willsey, Paul Compton, Trevor Murphy, and a few others who are now booking their trips. In addition to keeping them very busy in the office and with clients let's make sure to show them our great city.

‎​Finally I met this evening with one of our teammates directly affected by the tsunami. He and his brother continue to supporrt their mother as all three work with local authorities to search for their father and grandfather. We gave him water, food, batteries and a hug. If only we could give hime what he and his family are looking for.

Person Sends Email To Jamie Dimon

We* don't really find it particularly amusing amusing or post-worthy that a Jefferies employee accidentally or misguidedly put Jamie Dimon on an email about a working group list but judging by the number of people who've sent it to us, this is the height of banking humor, so here you go:

His Trophy Case Full, Jamie Dimon Leaves Competitive Dancing To The Rest Of The Family

[caption id="attachment_73269" align="alignright" width="260" caption="People who *can* dance"][/caption] There are a lot of things Jamie Dimon is very, very good at: building a fortress balance sheet, chatting up reporters in elevators, doing sake bombs, and being appreciably better looking than his peers, to name just a few. In other areas, the JPMorgan CEO has left room for improvement. For example, his dancing skills, about which Dimon's own wife and mother are unsparing in their directness at this point. JPMorgan Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon “is a terrible dancer,” his wife, Judy Dimon, said last night at a gala for Ballet Hispanico, of which JPMorgan was the lead sponsor. She then moved her shoulders straight up and down to demonstrate what the 56 year-old leader of the biggest US bank, with $2.27 trillion of assets at year-end, does on the dance floor. Jame Dimon's mom, Themis Dimon, was no more encouraging. Is he a good dancer? "No," she said, shaking her head. Jamie Dimon wasn't present to prove otherwise. “Unfortunately he couldn’t be here tonight because he had another commitment,” said his wife, a Ballet Hispanico board member and the event’s honorary chairman. Too bad. Jamie Dimon missed a good party. His wife, in a slim-fitting coral gown, danced a salsa with New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz, reminiscent of his moves in the end zone after scoring a touchdown. Speaking of people who can hold their own on the dance floor? “We like to dance,” Jamie Dimon's father Theodore Dimon, there with his wife and Jamie's twin brother, told Bloomberg. “We dance the fox trot -- it’s nice and easy.” Scene Last Night: Victor Cruz, Dimon for Ballet Hispanico [Bloomberg]
