A 53-year-old chiropractor and his wife jumped to their deaths from a midtown office building after typing double suicide notes complaining about financial woes.

The NY Daily News reports that the couple jumped from the ninth floor of his office, which had recently been permanently closed.

The couple landed in the street near the sidewalk in front of the 14-story office building at Madison Avenue and East 33 St. around 5:45 a.m., police said.

A note found inside a Ziploc bag in the woman’s pocket read: “Our kids are upstairs, please take care of them.”

The Ziploc bag also contained a letter from the chiropractor along with their ID cards.

The man’s letter read: “WE HAD A WONDERFUL LIFE,” before touching on their spiraling debt.

The note continued: “Patricia and I had everything in life” but “we can not live with” the “financial reality,” sources said.

A double suicide is unusual even for New York City.

“It’s awfully scary and sad,” said Cortney Jekielek, 36, who deejays at 305 Fitness gym down the block. “We had to cancel classes but so what? This is terrible,” she said.

The couple lived in downtown Manhattan.

    This is crazy. How selfish to leave your children without both parents. People are disturbed.

  • Kanyade

    Wow. How terrible. Surely there could’ve been some other (positive) recourse to end their misery of their “financial reality”. I feel for the children. How dreadful.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    People are stressed tf out! Just sad. RIP.

  • deadellamore

    That is terrible and sad! This is a prime example why people need to be more kind and compassionate to each other. Nobody has to go through life alone and think the only solution is death. I feel for their children and their families. I hope they have found peace with the Almighty.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Tsk tsk!!

  • i troll it like i see it

    But they had each other. There had to be another way.

  • thrift.store.jungle

    this is heart wrenching. i suppose they figured they’d be worth more dead ?

  • Noirluv45

    What really angers me about this is that they had children. It was a very selfish act. I understand we all go through stuff, and sometimes life can be extremely overwhelming; however, most of the time, it works itself out.

    Another thing, when they jumped, they could’ve landed on people. Another selfish act. I know I sound callous, but I’m thinking about the children.

  • Branch Davidian

    While everyone is worried about vaccines causing autism, Cement Poisoning is killing people like this couple all the time….

  • Freeriah

    White people can’t live with being broke but black families have been broke and feeding their kids off basically nothing since the beginning of time. As far as I am concerned they were weak fools and their kids are better off without them. Hopefully the kids don’t base their lives off of what they have.

  • Ryan

    So instead of adjusting their lifestyle they chose to kill themselves? Was it that serious going from two Mercedes to one?

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I saw on another site that they wrote that they BOTH had health problems & could not afford the medical expense.

    I was about to post that!! But either way it still feels like there’s more to this story!

  • Mo Mobetta

    I’m sorry but generalizing people’s decision off of race is getting outdated. It wasn’t but a few months back that a black couple killed themselves and their 3 kids over financial woes. And stop ignoring the fact that there is such a thing as lower class white folks. I’m tired of people, black peopl at that generalizing every black person in America’s relatives as being slaves or poor. When there was also Black slave owners and rich black men who never were slaves. There’s actual black people in America who’s ancestors never touched cotton (gasps) or been broke, or poor and yet you’d assume they would relate to you more cause their black is ignorant.

    Umm Im currently spending money I got from my male friend bc this is not my pay week and refuse to go into my savings. i was down to my last $20. Its NEVER that damn bad. Not never. THESE are the suicides I dont feel bad about. Not bc you were somehow physically or mentally violated and never got the help or support you needed. All of this bc you aint paid your taxes since 2003. Fukk you been knew yall aint paid them taxes.

  • Justlooknout

    Truly sorry to here of their untimely death. Your mate can bring you joy or bring you down. It’s so unfortunate they there were no other options. Hopefully the IRS looks at this, people are hurting over taxes. Meanwhile Orange Shit Head….Could care less.

    And all you see when you turn on the tv is what Trump tweeted THERE ARE MORE PRESSING ISSUES!!!

    The couple, who had two children ages 19 and 20, lived in downtown Manhattan.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    woman left note that said, “Our kids are upstairs, please take care of them”

    Um Becky and John-John GROWN asses will BE okay. I thought the story was tambout some SMALL kids. they will get jobs and go on to be FINE. From this statement on taking care of some big ass kids…Im sure they are entitled ass brats.

    This is a rough bunch in here. Mental illness is real and seems to be contagious. Unfortunately everybody can’t handle the pressures of life.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Facts! That doesn’t fit the ‘exceptional’ American narrative! It’s treated like Uncle Peete on Soul Food LOL. Just lock they asses up in a room, out of sight out of mind.

    In Louisiana alone funding has been completely reduced (due to Jindal, he’s one of THEM though, he’ll go down in history as a yt man LOL ). People with mental issues literally have limited to no programs (assisted living, even hospitals). It’s a shame!

    That’s white people for you.

  • Look@m3

    STOP looking like that LMAO

  • Look@m3

    Yeah it was clearly more than financial and medical issues. There was some mental issues there too. I wish my husband would try and convince me to jump with him and leave my tink tink! F dat nigga bye! After I try to convince you not to do it. We would just move into the projects and have “Good Times” !

  • Please Stop The Madness

    So both were mentally ill? what are the ODDS? They were still frequenting their local bar the story says. having a good time. Out laughing. I think they were ashamed to admit to their family and friends they no longer had it like that and couldnt bear embarrassment. I know real mentally ill folks. that truly cannot help it and thus are NOT embarrassed. They havent paid taxes since 2003. They been mentally ill since 2003? Or broke since 2003 and were tired of being broke.

  • LibraGirlonly

    White People aren’t cut from the same cloth as we are. We are built strong and they aren’t. Smh at these two selfish people that left children behind because they were to cowardly to face their issues.

  • puppylove

    The black folk whos families have been here since before 1800 are mostly (like 95%) descendants of slaves.

    People kill themselves for many reasons, but, those who are privileged tend to kill themselves over lack of funds more than those who are generationally poor.

    Those two facts put together says that more white people kill themselves over money.

  • Ro

    Yep!

  • Anunnaki

    This saddens me cause these people dont even know that their debts are already paid. And our head leaders knows this yet they hide it. Or confuse the hell out of you so u cant understand it.

  • Look@m3

    Just yesterday a 37 year old man with mental issues may have did something with his grandmother which police are still looking for Millie. I pray they find Millie. Apparantly he was a mental case and had something to do with the disappearance of his grandmother. Man people are really toughing it out out here with out mental help!

  • LibraGirlonly

    They were cowards.

    He was a chiropractor. I know my lifelong derm traded medical services to her podatrist when she had to have her toenail removed. The podatrist needed some moles removed. Medical professionals and legal too do it ALL THE TIME.

  • Look@m3

    Right if it ever get to that point, Ill just go bankrupt and start all over! Just think they not the only ones dealing with issues like this

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Had anyone talked to them about getting a second job? Maybe working a graveyard shift as a security officer? Driving a taxi? Babysitting? Mowing lawns? Fast food on weekends?

  • LibraGirlonly

    Correction black People have been feeding their children off basically nothing since the white man came in power. We had plenty before they came on the scene.

  • Coy little wink

    Haven’t paid taxes…that’s tons of folks ?

    That story laid it out. This is not the great depression when you jump out a damn window over your finances. Its help out there. Do you know how many IRS NOTICES these folks most likely got before shit started getting garnished/seized? It doesnt happen overnight.

  • Please Stop The Madness

    “He owed roughly $213,000 to the feds and nearly $42,000 to the state in unpaid taxes that dated all the way back to 2003.”

  • Look@m3

    Look like no one got a chance too…must have been a secret until their death. Sad. If someone recognized them as being potentially suicidal then they would have been admitted immeedddiiiaately!

  • Please Stop The Madness

    Sounds like it might have been above them. And since they found money to go to their local waterhole where they were described in one story as being “regulars”; to the point they were hanging out with the manager personally…they didnt have time to work a second job

  • Ms. Cree

    VERY SELFISH!!! How could you leave your children because of financially hard times? Minorities all over the world have had to learn to survive without a pot to piss in. This is very frustrating and heartbreaking.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Probably worried about not having a seat at the Rich mans table anymore. You know their snobby so called friends would never speak to them again them being newly poor.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Sounds like white people problems. May God protect there kids

  • Please Stop The Madness

    I dont agree with you often but this is exactly what this sounds like. Now if it is or isnt, we dont know. But that story and the other ones out there of this incident make it sound like this too. Where there is smoke…

  • Ro

    Yep that’s right! sure we all have issues and we all deal with things this life throws at us, but to kill yourself over it is just crazy…white folks are certainly not built like us.

  • Ro

    I’m sure they have some LIFE insurance money waiting for them. They’ll be fine. White folks keep life insurance.

  • MJ

    That’s what I was thinking..it’s hard to believe the mom
    was on board with leaving her kids like that. He may have put the note in her pocket and pushed her then jumped..

  • CutdBS

    Nope, the truth is, it’s just a lot of black people (ie BLACK MEN) walking around broke, destitute and can’t feed their kids but are still happy. Strangest thing…. no other group of men in this country are like that.

  • Smith Jane

  • ?Royalty?

    But by suicide the kids can’t even get the insurance payout. SMH. They left their kids with their debt.

  • BRuhman_Vista

    “white people problems”? People of all races commit suicide for financial, family, and a whole host of other issues. Heck, my next door neighbor recently buried her grand baby (early 20s with a baby daughter) after committing suicide. I assure you, her grand baby was VERY black. Slanting this terrible tragedy in a racial direction seems most unfortunate.

    Was that in the suicide note? Damned troll. Y’all politicize every. Damned. Thing. ?

  • stav

    I only feel for the kids, and those that loved them! You care that much about social standing and what others may think because your tax bracket may decrease? Guess what ,you accrued those taxes, and you lived high off the hog and loved a certain lifestyle , but you weren’t responsible enough to pay what’s owed? These seemed to be people that were living a façade ! You lived in Manhattan (one of the most expensive cities in the world), you were professionals, you made great money, but now the world is suppose to mourn your selfish , self imposed death cause you couldn’t handle or didn’t want to pay your taxes on time? Please, I’m not heartless, but I feel no empathy/sympathy for the deceased here.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Wow lived a great life and gave up when shyt got tough..hope yall enjoyed life cause suicide doesnt offer the eternal life or pearly gates option ??..left ur kids to struggle and be broke tho…sooo messed up

    those who have not reached legal adulthood and cannot provide financially for themselves are orphans. Like how children 18 and under collect a check when their parent dies from social sec. These kids are 19 and 20 years old. Sad they lost their parents but its jobs out here for them

  • my view

    you gonna be waiting

  • lulu’smommy

    Suicide is murder. It is self-murder.
    Matthew 5:21 “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’

    Suicide is not enduring until the end (When God calls you home)
    Matthew 24:13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved.

    People don’t go to Hell because they committed suicide. It is not the unforgivable sin. People go to Hell for not trusting in Jesus Christ alone for salvation. Would a Christian live a life of selfishness? Because suicide is a Selfish act
    2 Corinthians 5:17-19 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
    Suicide is extremely dishonoring the Lord. It is taking your life with one act of selfish rebellion. No one wants to die like that. No one wants to die with the last memories of them being they killed themselves. Depression does not last. Our trials do not last. God doesn’t tell you to make a way. He says He will make a way! He Doesn’t say trust in the flesh. He says trust in Him! Ecclesiastes 7:17 Do not be overwicked, and do not be a fool– why die before your time? Thanks for waiting

  • my view

    And it still doesn’t say they’re going to hell. Matthew was talking about the old law you know the one GOD got rid of because of Grace..

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Who said they were 19 and 20? That’s not what I read.

  • soujourn_erets

    Maybe they’ll benefit from a life insurance policy

  • lulu’smommy

    (1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NIV) [19] Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; [20] you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body. We are not our own. It is up to God when we die not us. It is hard to argue that a person who kills himself is honoring God with his body.

  • soujourn_erets

    We are not to kill.

    BUt, let me help. Hell comes from the Hebrew word Sheol. Sheol means the grave. We all will go to the grave.

  • SweetTEE

    A lot of policies will still pay out if the policy is at least 2 years old

  • soujourn_erets

    Hell derives from the Hebrew word Sheol. Sheol means the grave. We all go to the grave.

    The lake of fire is different.

  • lulu’smommy

    (Matthew 16:24 NIV) Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.” To be a follower of Christ, you must deny yourself. Now it is pretty hard to claim a person has denied himself when he commits suicide.

  • soujourn_erets

  • Freeriah

    Okay no ones talking about slavery! I stated what it is. Please don’t put your stupid opinion on my comments because it’s not warranted. Like I said blacks are use to the struggle and we live through it and accept it. But whites see there selves about to go broke and they kill them selves.

  • VM

    Dam, the fantasy to live so lavishly that you can’t live in this reality without it. The ego can drive us to do some outrageous things. My heart aches for the children because it seems like they chose wealth over everything else. It’s difficult to understand a person can’t cope with having little money, it gives you an opportunity to refine your skills on checks and balancing. I tell you what though you learn the importance of managing your money, it cuts down on you being so lose with your coins. I send prayers up for the family especially the children because this teaches them when things get overwhelming commit suicide. So so so sad.

  • Freeriah

    Well I’m not talking about them. I’m talking about women dating back in the day until now that feed there kids off of little $ and as long as the kids are happy then they are happy. If you have a bone to pick with black men don’t do it on my comments.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Are there even life insurances that cover suicide?

  • Kayke

    People can’t even downgrade their car without a conniption…. It sound so easy but for these kind of folks it’s not the city or house….it’s the echelon, stature, friends, family…. They can’t possible be seen as midclass …. the very people they’ve always talked down on.

  • VM

    And that burden shouldn’t be on those babies to carry.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Oh really? I honestly didn’t know there were such policies that would cover suicide. Interesting to know this. Not that I’d ever attempt to take my own life.. I’m riding this thang till the wheels fall off!

  • hottlanta

    The black slave owner and the wealthy black men were still slaves because they knew the minute white folks felt that they stepped outta line they will be back in the field with the quickness. They would be always look back over their shoulders more than the slaves in the fields. Therefore they were slaves. You still got cops stopping black folks on camera right now asking black folks for their identification, code word freedom papers. if they don’t have them they go to jail. Trayvon Martin was stalked like an animal and died because he looked as if he didn’t belong. Didn’t have his freedom papers and you wanna believe that myth and lie that black slave holders and wealthy black folks had the same rights as white men during slavery time. ROTFLMAO. Even Clarence Thomas got his “uppity Negro”/high class lynching wake up call.

  • Karen Brady

    Amen.. it can be a struggle sometimes and even overwheleming but you roll with the tide, hang on tight and everything works out. It’a all good, part of life for most of us. And when there’s kids, that changes everything!!!. We brought them here so we must stick around for their butts :-).

  • hottlanta

    This breaks my heart. But I am glad that the whole family wasn’t taken out. Now we hear about one family member killing the whole family like the lady in Georgia that murdered her husband and 4 kids. I have been through some challenging financial times myself and it does get quite rough. You can’t/don’t talk about it because you get tired of talking about all the time. Then you do everything to change it and it seems as if it stays the same. People tell you to pray, then you get tired of praying. What pissed me off is ho can people like Dump get outta paying taxes for years and someone po like me they be all up in my financial azz from day one. They don’t wait 30 days.

    We have learned to be without for ages… and we’re just fine. Nothing in this world and I mean nothing is too hard to take your life!

  • Tlowe89

    Exactly how do you plan a suicide with your spouse. Crazy loves crazy. Very sad, tragic, and selfish

  • Scromes1212

    It comes from living beyond your means. People just have to cut back and understand need and want. In my humble opinion

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Yeah, you right, but love for your children should have.

  • Rayne

    I been owing stuff since bout 17. I ain’t gon kill my fawking self. And I oftentimes tell them that right before I hang up on them. Except for the rent ppl car note ppl and student loan folks. Cause student loan ppl will garnish my check and I ain’t bout that there. Noooo lawd.

  • Jen_no_juice

    Sad situation. But folks need to stop focusing on materialistic things. Now the kids have no parents to care for them

  • starbright9449

    Lmaooooooo

  • KLo

    so sad. they only cared about themselves, their ordeal and not the kids suffering

    Wait a minute! They were married but they have different last names? And their children are 19 and 20 years old, still children, but they aren’t the babies I was expecting.

  • Ni Ni

    True!

  • dontgetblocked

    White people would rather kill themselves than live with the reality black people have lived with for centuries.

  • http://www.Samanthagwrites.com Samantha G.

    Hmph that’s crazy. I feel there’s more to this story. They must’ve owed someone money and that someone was out for their heads. Probably threatened the lives of their kids. But let me not get carried away with my imagination. The emotional terror they left behind for their kids, family and the people who saw them actually hit that street smh. That was very selfish of them, I’m sorry.

  • Tena

    Wow what a painful way to kill yourself. How selfish of them to do this to their kids. I guess filing for bankruptcy wasn’t an option.

  • Athena Panagakos

    Cause it’s not in there. Sampson killed himself with God’s permission. Are people actually thinking he went to hell? People always listen to the “pastor” instead of reading their Bible. Jesus will cover all sin.

  • Solstice

    Say that!! ??

  • Waya Hedia

    Or, he may simply put the note in her pocket and pulled her off. hmmm

  • Waya Hedia

    whaaaat?

  • the guest

    I don’t think this couple was destitute and I don’t think they knew what poor really was. They killed themselves because they feared what poor would be like. People like this couple think moving out of the city and living in a modest three bedroom apartment is the end of the world. Not living the high society NYC $8,000 a month rent life was NOT worth leaving their kids without parents.

  • the guest

    Beautifully said.

  • NicoleZee

    You should see my credit report and my credit score. Suicide for being broke??? Hell naw! They write off certain debts after so many years anyway. Who the hell pays a bill they owed 5 or 10 years ago??? Ridiculous. And we all have student loans, but if you are unemployed or have low income, you can request forbearance and deferments. Or, just file for bankruptcy.

    And furthermore, how the hell can they live in downtown Manhattan complaining about finances??? The cost of living in NY is still high, so I’m not understanding. If you can’t afford where you live, most people just move somewhere cheaper or move in with relatives or friends, or hell even a damn shelter until their situation improves. This story doesn’t make sense.

  • NicoleZee

    A suicide pact. I thought that was more common with teenagers and very young adults.

  • NicoleZee

    Exactly. How the hell you go complain about money but you live in NY, which is overpriced as hell anyway??? I’m not understanding. Ain’t no way I’m paying high ass rent to live in a jail cell sized apartment in a filthy city full of rodents bigger than my damn toddler! FOH!

  • NicoleZee

    I thought ALL of NY was overpriced, which is why many have moved south or further north. My first apartment when I moved up north to MI in the early 2000s was $475 monthly and it was in a nice area, no vermin, no crime. You cannot get that price now anywhere or you’ll be in a very bad area and situation! But to pay what some New Yorkers pay for a small apartment, plus the crime and rodents???? Naw, not worth it. If you’re going to pay that damn much for a place, it should be worth it, clean surroundings, big enough space, and who the hell wants to live among vermin, the f*ck???? You can end up sick. Rodents carry disease.

  • NicoleZee

    There are homeless people that have been on the streets for 10 years and they haven’t killed themselves. I don’t know how they’ve endured their situation, but they have. And every homeless person is NOT mentally ill like some people think, I guess some people like this couple just aren’t strong enough to survive in the world. Very sad.

  • NicoleZee

    I curse out bill collectors, tell them they have the wrong number, tell them the person they’re looking for doesn’t live here, and they STILL call back!!! I couldn’t have that job.

  • hotntot95

    Lol..they don’t care they just keep rotating shifts and calling the same people..I don’t lose sleep anymore..I work and live well, bills get paid when I get paid..

    “But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven, he is guilty of an eternal sin.” (Mark 3:29)

    The very reason why Satan wanted Christ to jump from a cliff….to go against the Holy Spirit that was/is within him.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Samson did not commit suicide, his life had a purpose and he was fulfilling Gods will. What these people did was suffer death for their own carnal reasons, nothing to do with God.

  • Athena Panagakos

    Yes, his life had a purpose and then he killed himself. If he hadn’t have been sleeping with a prostitute, maybe he would have lived longer.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Exactly, many policies cover suicide if covered for x amount of year (work in insurance).

  • Oya Shango

    This is not unusual when the economy is collapsing. Expect more of this. During the stock market crash of 1933, white folks were jumping to their deaths left and right. The kids are lucky that they were not thrown to their deaths by them. . . . Just brace yourselves. There is more to come.

  • Vonn

    Those fools wrote “we lived a good life.” Guess they couldn’t fathom living a “poor” lifestyle & just left their kids to figure it out.

  • Vonn

    When keeping up with the Joneses goes wrong. Very sad for their children.

  • KEKE

    No coping skills.

  • Jessy

    It’s almost worst to do it with kids that age-just starting out. Minors would, at least, be taken care of by the state. So sad.

  • JJSPLAYHOUSE

    THANK YOU

  • scentsychick30

    This is sad ? it was very selfish to end it all for financial issues. Downgrade switch From the Lexus to a Camry. Then file bk and start over.

  • hopeless?

    Stop living beyond your means people. Be happy with what you got. We’re blessed to be alive.

  • Freeriah

    Right

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Now that’s what you would call graveyard love

  • Fred G sanford

    Talk about selfish, if you’re in financial trouble so what move, but instead you take the cowerdly way out and now you kids have to deal wit this bullshyt

  • Crazy tee

    Exactly, I see people living beyond their means all the time…Black folk will be like “back ta da hood, let me see if Juanita is still working at the local shelter to see if we can get a spot” but we are not going to take our lives…RIP

  • ClaireHuxtable

    That’s more likely.
    I’m not jumping just coz you wanna…

  • ClaireHuxtable

    The new WH Communication’s Chief Scarymuchi.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    They were shamed by having to drive a Ford.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Money comes and goes. They couldn’t have handled any real challenge like cancer or the d3ath of a child.
    They probably didn’t teach their children any real values either.

    Sad story all the way around.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I’ve driven a h00pty before. At the time, I was glad to get it. It was either that or walk. At least they could walk in NYC.

  • Mojo2

    A$$ holes and cowards.

  • Mojo2

    My girlfriend’s mother committed suicide (poor health/medical issues) that child was definitely affected for life, so sad.

  • Mojo2

    There’s got to be more to this, otherwise these 2 are cowardly morons.

  • Lisa daniels

    Exactly

    Trump and Delta have done it multiple times, these bishes was just lazy or laundering money.

  • belizeanborn

    Cowards, living beyond their means and now they have left their children to deal with the grief of abandonment of both their parents. #Selfishness

    It is the blessing of the Lord that makes rich, And He adds no sorrow to it.
    Proverbs 10:22: If it didn’t come from God….I was just explaining to my daughter that I would wear the same pair of shoes, clothes everyday, if that’s the sacrifice I have to make to have a piece of mind…..I’m not trying to impress no one with my living standards besides GOD. In everything I am content…..I’m telling you, If you have JESUS, you not jumping off no roof….

  • Vegas1989

    I can’t see why they could have filed a chapter 7,11 or 13. Things can be negotiated. I wouldn’t have jump…You go right ahead….But we have to be held accountable for our bills…We signed up for it we make that payment until you pay it off…

  • Maxima

    It is one thing to owe money, and another thing to owe it to the wrong people.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    it’s futile reasoning with folks like you. Stick to Greek mythology.

  • Athena Panagakos

    Oh what a semi cleaver retort from an afro-centric asshole who thinks all black people are kings and queens and no other races matter. It’s your kind that makes the normal black people look foolish. Get over your dumbass self. #blockedbitch???

    Hehe- silly rabbit, you revealed yourself!
