A Wall Street recruiter leaped to her death Monday morning from her luxury Upper East Side home, sources told The Post.
Lindsay Jacoby, 40, a mother of two, jumped at around 10:30 a.m. from the fourth-floor roof of 12 Henderson Place, a historic brick home located on an enclave between East 86th and 87th streets, the sources said.
It’s unclear whether she left a note.
A man who said Lindsay was his daughter screamed in “agony” after finding out she had jumped, according to passersby.
“It was really harrowing. He screamed and screamed. We thought he was having a heart attack. He came out of the building and said to call 911. But he was clutching his heart,” said Jeffrey B.
“It wasn’t until the police showed up that we realized it was a suicide.”
It’s a nice neighborhood, “but there are demons everywhere,” another passerby added.
The woman and her husband Seth Jacoby purchased the one-family home in 2014 for $3.6 million, taking out a $2.5 million mortgage, according to public records.
The couple has two young children.
She previously worked in internal recruiting positions at Oppenheimer and Co., JPMorgan and Citigroup, and served as the CEO and president at her own firm, Jacoby Staffing.
She graduated cum laude from Union College in Schenectady and studied for a year in Osaka, Japan, according to her LinkedIn page.
Henderson Place was closed off Monday pending an investigation.
Two women showed up crying hysterically at the corner of Henderson and East 86th Street on Monday afternoon.
“Why would she do this?” one pal wailed.
Lindsay and Seth Jacoby were married in 2005, according to a New York Times announcement.
The jet-setting mom frequently posted on Facebook about her travels and how proud she was of her son and daughter.
“This is Istanbul!!! Loving this city, the people and spending quality time with my family!!” she wrote in 2015 along with photos of the family’s trip to Turkey.
Lindsay’s suicide comes seven months after Margaret Fagenson jumped to her death from a 14th-floor terrace at 535 East 86th St., across the street from 12 Henderson.
Fagenson, 68, who was married to wealthy investment-banking CEO Robert Fagenson, suffered from depression.
A neighbor reported seeing Lindsay taken from the house in an ambulance two weeks ago.
“I think there was something going on with them,” he said. “It seems like there was something amiss.”
