A Wall Street recruiter died after dropping from a high-rise building on New York City’s Upper East Side.

Local reports say that the 40-year-old mother of two dropped to her death at 12 Henderson Place around 10:30 a.m. on Monday, the New York Post reported. She was later identified as Lindsay Jacoby, who worked at Oppenheimer & Co. She lived at a home located between East 87th and 86th streets.

An NYPD spokesperson told NY’s Patch.com that Jacoby’s death “seems like a suicide.”

The city’s Medical Examiner will now determine the precise cause of death, as the New York Daily News reported.

She worked at JP Morgan and Citigroup as a recruiter and served the chief of her own firm, Jacoby Staffing. She and her husband, Seth, got married in 2005, the New York Times reported.

According to her LinkedIn profile, she joined Oppenheimer in November 2016.

“Lindsay was a wonderful colleague during her brief tenure at Oppenheimer, and she will be greatly missed,” Joan Khoury, who is the chief marketing officer at Oppenheimer, told Bloomberg News. “Our most heartfelt condolences go out to her family during this difficult time.”

In a bizarre twist, a woman jumped to her death from a 14th-floor terrace across the street from where Jacoby jumped. It happened seven months ago.
