Former co-CEO of Deutsche Bank and Indian-born Anshu Jain passed away after a nearly five-year struggle with cancer.
Anshu Jain, 59, who passed away early on Saturday after a protracted, serious illness, was mourned by Deutsche Bank, the company said in a statement on Saturday. In 2017, Mr. Jain received a diagnosis of duodenal cancer.
A message from Anshu Jain's family read, "We are profoundly heartbroken that our beloved husband, son, and father, Anshu Jain, passed away overnight," according to a Fortune article.
A mass of atypical, quickly proliferating cells called duodenal cancer can be found in the initial part of the small intestine.
According to the family, Mr. Jain lasted four years longer than expected after receiving his original diagnosis "through a mix of thorough personal research, tactical skill, great caregivers, and sheer force of will."
Because relatively few patients reach these anniversaries, there are few credible statistics available for life expectancy for stomach cancer in the third, fourth, and fifth years. Anshu maintained his lifelong resolve to "not be a statistic" to the very end, according to the family, who was quoted in the Fortune article.
