Two Young Bank of America Workers Die Suddenly Within Weeks of Each Other

• By Cullen Linebarger

The most recent death was 25-year-old Adnan Deumic, who worked in the United Kingdom for Bank of America. Fox Business reported he died from "cardiac arrest" while playing soccer Thursday night, merely two weeks after a 35-year-old investment banker for the company passed away unexpectedly, reportedly due to a blood clot.

A Bank of America spokesperson confirmed Adnan Deumic's death to Fox Business.

"The death of our teammate is a tragedy, and we are shocked by the sudden loss of a popular, young colleague," the spokesperson said. "We are committed to providing our full support to Adnan's family, his friends, and to our many employees grieving his loss."

Deumic, originally from Sweden, was quite active in sports, including ice hockey. Before working for Bank of America, he interned at JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Nordic investment bank ABG Sundal Collier.

Earlier this month, Wall Street was alarmed after learning about the death of 35-year-old Bank of America associate Leo Lukenas III, a former Green Beret and a member of the bank's Financial Institutions Group. He left behind a wife and two young children.

Lukenas was reportedly working about 100 hours a week for several weeks on a $2 billion merger that was completed last month.
