Wall Street recruiter, mother of two, jumps to her death from luxury NYC apartment building

Earlier this year, another wealthy socialite committed suicide right across the street

A Wall Street recruiter is dead after she jumped from the roof of an apartment building on New York City’s Upper East Side.

The New York Post reports that Lindsay Jacoby, 40, leapt to her death on Monday morning at about 10:30 a.m from the fourth-floor roof at 12 Henderson Place, which is between 86th and 87th street in the famously wealthy neighborhood.

Jacoby reportedly owned her own staffing firm serving Wall Street clients and previously worked as a recruiter at Citibank and JP Morgan. She married her husband Seth Jacoby in 2005, and the couple reportedly bought the Upper East Side townhouse in 2014 for $3.6 million.

According to what appears to be Jacoby’s Facebook page, she had two young children. It is not known if she left a suicide note.

Earlier this year, a wealthy philanthropist leapt to her death just across the street from where Jacoby died. Margaret Fagenson, 68, was reportedly struggling with depression.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
