Boston-born financier Jes Staley, 66, worked for JP Morgan for more than 30 years until his departure in 2013.

During this time, he cultivated a close relationship with the millionaire pedophile Epstein, staying multiple times at his Manhattan townhouse, New Mexico ranch, and U.S. Virgin Islands retreat.

Staley wrote in one email, obtained by Bloomberg, that he was so enamored of the Caribbean island – dubbed ‘Pedo Island’ by locals – that he wanted to install his own private mooring at the dock on retirement.

Staley as far back as 2006 joked to colleagues about Epstein being surrounded by young girls.

Jes Staley is pictured in January 2018 arriving for a meeting at Downing Street in London, while he was CEO of Barclay's Bank. He resigned in 2021 amid questions over his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein

Writing in August 2006 to Mary Erdoes, then a senior executive at JPMorgan’s private bank, Staley described attending a Huggy Bear concert, and said: ‘The age difference between husbands and wives would have fit in well with Jeffrey. What a joke.’

Epstein’s 2008 jailing in Florida on charges of soliciting minors did not end Staley’s admiration.

‘I miss you,’ he wrote in June 2008. ‘The world is a tough place. Hang in there.’

When Staley wanted a pay rise from Jamie Dimon, then CEO of the bank, he turned to Epstein – who at the time was still serving his prison sentence.

‘Tell him [Dimon] a one million dollar increase to 25 million,’ replied Epstein. ‘DO not give in. I’ll try to call you later.’

Staley’s communications have been revealed as part of a law suit filed by victims, accusing JPMorgan of enabling Epstein’s activities by continuing to keep him as a client despite his conviction and prison time, and despite internal warnings from JPMorgan legal advisors.

Staley was among those who urged the bank to retain Epstein as a customer.

Between 2009 and 2015, Staley scheduled 60 meetings at Epstein-owned properties, Bloomberg reported.

It is unclear how many of those meetings were held.
