Before last night’s big 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy relief, a bunch of JPMorgan employees got to have dinner with New York Knicks centre Tyson Chandler and the bank’s CEO Jamie Dimon. While bank employees were meeting the pro basketball player, one seemed more star stuck by the CEO and asked Dimon for his autograph, DealBook’s Michael J. de La Merced reports.
