Memphis newspaper executive dies after falling from London House hotel in Loop – Chicago Tribune

To those who knew Eric Janssen, it seemed only natural that he became a passionate explorer of urban landscapes with his camera.

“He found beauty in unlikely places,” said his sister, Cynthia Vukmer.  “Instantly being able to post pictures, I think that really captured his attention and his imagination and his passion.”

Janssen’s family and friends believe that’s what he was doing Monday afternoon when he plunged to his death from a top floor of the London House hotel in the Loop.

He fell from the 20th floor of the hotel at 85 E. Wacker Drive and landed on a 6th-floor roof around 3:30 p.m., authorities said. The medical examiner said he suffered multiple injuries and ruled his death an accident. He was 44.
