I don't know if I am the only one but I have been searching the net for any information on this beleagued AIGFP Executive VP by the name of Jake DeSantis who penned that woeful resignation letter to Edward Liddy and published it in the New York Times. Surprisingly the only references to a man who supposedly holds such a lofty title is of the op-ed and one single solitary recently posted linkedin profile. Is something fishy going on? Follow me over the fold and help me get some closure on this issue.

Update: From the comments section there is a story line from a small paper about Jake/Jason DeSantis.
I researched some of the info and it seems to check out. His wife is Erika not Erica which its how its spelled in the story but otherwise they do seem to live in Wilton CT and they seem to give to several different charities. Some Scientology stuff but thats not a big deal I don't suppose. There still isn't much actually corraborating the story except people on the periphery meaning Jake/Jason didn't comment for the article but it does seem that he does exist. And he does work for AIGFP. At least that part of the mystery is solved but I am going to do just a little more digging. Thanks to everyone for helping with the search.
For the better part of the last four hours I have been doing all manner of internet searches for this Jake DeSantis guy who wrote the GBCW screed in the New York Times today and his position with AIG. It all started because I did a quick Google search and thought I found him when I found this guy named Anthony J. DeSantis who is a VP at AIG but with the wrong division. After I posted a link to Anthony's information over at Swampland it was pointed out to me that it wasn't the right guy. Well I have now looked all over the net includinng here, here and here and there is no sign of an Executive VP at AIGFP by the name of Jake DeSantis. Now I am going to allow for the fact that he could indeed exist but I can tell you one thing other than a recently posted LinkedIn profile and the NYTimes op-ed he doesn't actually exist in tandem with AIG on the intertubes. I wonder if anybody else has tried to contact the guy or at least verify that he exists?
If he DOESN'T exist then the New York Times will have lost ALL credibility. That much is for sure!
So I am enlisting your help. Can we at least find out if this guy really works for AIGFP and really worked for $1 (which I thought only Liddy elected to do) and really quit because he was "targeted" and is really giving over $700,000 to charity?
