A young analyst at Greenhill & Co. died during after-party celebration with some of his new colleagues, the New York Post’s Kaja Whitehouse reports.  Jack Keith McDuffie Roloson, 23, a native of Arlington, Texas, was hit and killed by an SUV on the Garden State Parkway in New Jersey on Friday, July 27th.

According to the Post, the tragic incident occurred when Roloson and a group of colleagues rented a limo and headed to Atlantic City following a work party thrown by the boutique investment bank on July 26th marking the end of their summer training.

At around 2 a.m. the limo pulled over so Roloson could urinate, according to the report.  He crossed the southbound lanes to the centre median and when he headed back across the Parkway the SUV stuck and killed him, the report said citing New Jersey police.  

Roloson graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in May with a double major in finance and honours molecular biology.  He finished with high honours and Phi Beta Kappa, too.

While in college, he was part of the student government, the Dean’s Scholar Program, a member of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity and the Texas Equity Group. He also spent a summer studying abroad in Madrid. 

According to his Linkedin profile, Roloson had interned at private equity firm TGC Partners, Barclays Capital, JPMorgan and Merrill Lynch, just to name a few of his stints in finance.

Last year, Greenhill & Co. lost two of its managing directors in a private plane crash in New Jersey.
