It’s not all caviar dreams and champagne wishes among the 1%. They play beer pong just like the rest of us.
Sure, when the family of the top executive at America’s biggest bank plays beer pong with friends, they use personalized balls emblazoned with their portraits. But aside from that, they’re just like you and I.
Laura Dimon, whose father is JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, got on to TPM’s radar with a widely-criticized column she wrote for PolicyMic last week that proclaimed Flint, Michigan “America’s most apocalyptic, violent city.” On Facebook, Laura has many photo albums that, along with the aforementioned customized beer pong setup, show her famous father dancing (pictured above), wearing silly costumes, enjoying adult beverages and more.
Photos show there is a dedicated beer pong table and multiple “shot skis” on what appears to be the roof of Dimon’s Park Avenue apartment. Sadly, there are no pictures of Dimon playing beer pong himself or partaking in shots. But the pictures make clear Dimon, who has said he might want to open his own bar one day, was there while all the fun was taking place.
Take a journey inside the fabulous and fun world of a man whose company made a record $21.3 billion profit via Laura’s best Facebook photos below. Some faces have been blurred to protect the identity of partiers who aren’t tycoons.
The customized beer pong balls with what seems to be Laura’s portrait appear to have been part of a birthday celebration based on the date that appeared below the photo. Many of the pictures were uploaded on the anniversary of that date Jun. 16, 2013.
Laura’s beer pong bash took place on a roof where other photos show the Dimons attending multiple parties. The roof deck appears to be located atop the Park Avenue building where Dimon owns a “roof level” apartment.
There are no photos of Dimon playing beer pong, but other pictures uploaded on the same dates that show him with some of the pong players make it clear he was in attendance at the party.
Guests at the party on the Dimon roof seem to have enjoyed “shot skis” in addition to beer pong.
Along with drinking games, the Dimon roof seems to be equipped with some intense neon lighting.
Dimon seems to have opted for wine at the beer pong bash.
Jamie Dimon seems to have rang in 2013 with the help of some oversized glasses. This photo from Laura’s Facebook page was dated Jan. 6.
Last year, Dimon wore a festive hat when he celebrated New Year’s Eve with his daughters. This picture was dated Feb. 15, 2012.
New Year’s Eve isn’t the only holiday Dimon celebrates with costumes. This shot of Dimon and his wife, Judith Kent, in Christmas sweaters was uploaded Feb. 5 and captioned “xmas eve at Sonny’s” by Laura.
Dimon and his wife have also celebrated Christmas by sitting on Santa’s lap. This shot was uploaded by Laura on Jan. 30, 2012.
Eleven days after JPMorgan Chase announced a more than $6 billion loss that would lead to multiple criminal charges for former traders and a “scathing” Senate report, Laura posted this shot of Dimon trying on a spiffy shirt. The other man in the picture appears to be Dimon’s college friend Peter Maglathlin.
Dimon is apparently quite fond of Maglathlin.
Another party that seems to have been held on the Dimon roof featured more neon lights and Dimon dancing up a storm. This picture was dated Jul. 8 of this year.
Dimon also took the stage with a band at that party.
In addition to being an avid dancer, Dimon seems to be a fierce tennis competitor. …
And a fierce tickle fighter.
This picture was uploaded on Aug. 18 of this year and appeared with other photos Laura described as showing something she dubbed “family olympics ‘200-13.'”
Dimon cheered on the athletes at the “family olympics.”
