Jessica Fashano Commits Suicide

A 27-year old Citi banker, Jessica Fashano, commited suicide on Saturday by jumping off the roof of a Manhattan building, according to NYT.
NY detectives are investigating the death of a 27-year-old woman, who worked as an analyst for Citigroup, who died yesterday after jumping from a 40-story Upper West Side apartment building.
Authorities say around 8:15 a.m. Saturday, Jessica Fashano sneaked into the Trump Place tower on Riverside Blvd and jumped from the roof.
Residents in the luxury building called 911 after Fashano landed on the third-floor roof of an interior enclosed courtyard.
She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Authorities say the Georgetown University grad, who lived on West 53rd Street, did not leave a suicide note.
A resident said she was returning from walking her dog and rode up with Ms. Fashano in the elevator. Dressed for the cold in Ugg boots and a winter jacket, Ms. Fashano asked the woman how to get to the roof — which has views of the Hudson River and New Jersey, where Ms. Fashano grew up. The resident, who declined to be identified, said Ms. Fashano seemed alert and aware.
At 8:13 a.m., the police found her body in an internal courtyard, where she was pronounced dead. The police said they did not suspect foul play.
