Per a Reuters report, JPMorgan released a statement that said, "At today’s deposition, our CEO repeatedly confirmed that he never met with him, never emailed him, does not recall ever discussing his accounts internally, and was not involved in any decisions about his account."
"Millions and millions of emails and other documents that have been produced in this case" showed that Dimon did not have "any role in decisions about Epstein’s accounts."
JPMorgan Chase, the largest US bank, is being sued by the US Virgin Islands along with several women who have said they were victims of Epstein, and are seeking damages.
JPMorgan Chase started banking in 1998 with Epstein, who in 2008 was convicted for procuring child prostitution in Florida.
Top lieutenant to Chief Executive Jamie Dimon, Mary Erdoes, visited Epstein's NYC townhouse in 2011 and 2013. Erdoes previously claimed that her only memory of the child predator was the day she fired him as a client.
Dimon came on board the JPMorgan Chase team in 2004 and assumed the CEO role in 2005. He is not a defendant in the lawsuit but was ordered by a judge to leave up to four days for possible deposition.
According to the lawsuit, the bank is alleged to have known that Epstein was a child sex predator as early as 2006 and ignored the warnings.
In their statement, the bank said, "In hindsight, any association with (Epstein) was a mistake and we regret it, but these suits are misdirected as we did not help him commit his heinous crimes."
Former JPMorgan Chief Executive Jes Staley has been named as allegedly being complicit in Epstein's sex trafficking according to a separate lawsuit by an anonymous woman.
The bank is also suing Staley and has alleged he hid what he knew about Epstein.
Epstein died in 2019 under dubious circumstances that were reported as a suicide. Just before that, he had been arrested on additional sex crime charges related to abusing minors.
Epstein's private plane, also called the "Lolita Express," was used to transport political and media figures such as Bill Gates, Prince Andrew, and Bill Clinton to the island he owned, located in the US Virgin Islands.
