Which means, if you're keeping score at home, Dimon is now in the lead for top banking chief bonus for '09.
Unfortunately, Jamie will not get to enjoy his No. 1 ranking for long; Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd I Ain't Shooting Blankfein's '09 bonus, which is days away from being announced, is nearly a lock to best Dimon's.
In other news, David Kiely, the Aussie banker caught with his hand in the cookie jar (aka checking out jpegs of a nude Victoria's Secret model on his computer while his mate spoke about bonds and rates and other boring work stuff in a live Australian television interview), will get to keep his job at Macquarie Bank, thanks in part to a "Save Dave" campaign, which the model who Dave was checking out (Miranda Kerr, actor Orlando Bloom's fiance) wholeheartedly supported.
JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Blood Dimon will take home an all-stock (no cash) bonus worth $17 million for his time and effort on behalf of the bank's shareholders in 2009.
