JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon said Tuesday that approximately 55 percent of Bear employees will be out of a job once JPMorgan Chase completes its acquisition in the coming weeks, Reuters reports.

About 6,000 Bear guys and gals (out of a total of 14,000) got jobs inside JPMorgan, while Dimon found positions for another 1,500 outside the company, says BusinessWeek. Dimon's handwritten letters have probably helped for that second bunch.
