Margaret R.A. Paradis, 68
Margaret R. A. Paradis, of Oak Ridge, NJ, a member of Chase’s Legal Department in the 1990s, died the morning of February 19, 2020 with her dog Jeeves by her side. She was 68.
Born and raised in Englewood, NJ, as the oldest of four children, Paradis graduated from Vassar College and St. John’s Law School and received her LLM in International Law from NYU.
Paradis practiced corporate law in Washington DC and New York City. After leaving Chase in 1996, she served as Managing Director, CCO Global Asset Management at Deutsche Bank/Bankers Trust, and Senior Associate General Counsel at UBS PaineWebber Inc. She then went to the law firm side, as Of Counsel at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, a Partner at Baker & McKenzie LLP, and attorney at Morris, Manning & Martin, LLP, before becoming sick in 2013.
She beat the odds by surviving Stage 4 Ovarian Cancer for six and a half years. In 2017, she created S.O.C Monkey Foundation with her daughter, Olivia, to bridge gaps between knowledge of and involvement with ovarian cancer across social, medical and political communities.
She is survived by her daughter and three siblings.
