Message from Jamie Dimon

Dear Colleagues,

As we await the official results of the presidential, congressional, and other state and local elections, we must have confidence in our electoral and judicial systems, and have the patience and steadfastness to wait for the final decision.

As always, the well-being of our employees is very important to us. Please contact your manager, employee assistance program, or Global Security if you have any concerns.

I believe in America, its future, and the role we can all play in promoting healthy growth and creating an inclusive society. Regardless of the outcome, JPMorgan Chase will continue to work with leaders from both parties to provide critical support to communities and drive actions that will make this country a better country.

Once we have a final outcome, we must work together to address our nation's challenges. Although I have a deep and enduring belief in the United States of America, we have no divine right to success. Let us all do what we can to strengthen our extraordinary union.
