Young son made the tragic decision to take his own life.

Jeffrey Corzine, the youngest son of Jon Corzine, the former co-chairman of Goldman Sachs and governor of New Jersey, killed himself in Mexico after a struggle with depression, representatives of the family and the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City said Thursday.

Bloomberg reports that Steven Goldberg, the family spokesman, said Jeffrey Corzine had been under treatment for the illness, without saying where he died. Melissa Martinez, an embassy spokeswoman responding to questions about Corzine, said a U.S. citizen died in Mexico on March 11th and referred reporters to Goldberg.

'Jeffrey Corzine had been suffering from severe depression for several years and recently had been receiving treatment for what is a very painful and debilitating physical and mental ailment', Goldberg said in a statement late yesterday. 'On Tuesday morning, he succumbed to his disease and made the tragic decision to take his own life'.
