You might think that you hate your job, but hopefully, not to the point where you'd terminate your own life. But it happens: a 33-year-old finance executive at J.P. Morgan jumped to his death in Hong Kong earlier this week after he informed his colleague that he was under too much stress. This isn't the first time this has happened to a J.P. Morgan employee, either — it was the third suicide in weeks.

Which begs the question: which jobs are actually the most depressing? There are a variety of factors that go into how sad a job can potentially make an individual: we factored in a combination of salary, stress level, and average mortality and suicide rates.

So keep calm, and preferably, avoid these jobs on.
