Gustavo Arnal was an executive vice president and the chief financial officer of Bed Bath and Beyond.

He was identified as the man who plunged from the 18th floor of a New York City skyscraper on Friday, according to a report.

Arnal, 52, jumped from a tower in Manhattan’s Tribeca section known as the "Jenga Building,".

Bed Bath and Beyond confirmed in a news release on Sunday that Arnal died on Friday.

"I wish to extend our sincerest condolences to Gustavo's family," Harriet Edelman, Independent Chair of the Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. Board of Directors said in a written statement.

"Gustavo will be remembered by all he worked with for his leadership, talent and stewardship of our Company."

"I am proud to have been his colleague, and he will be truly missed by all of us at Bed Bath & Beyond and everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him," Edelman continued.

"Our focus is on supporting his family and his team and our thoughts are with them during this sad and difficult time. Please join us in respecting the family's privacy."

The incident happened two days after Bed Bath and Beyond announced it will cut about 20% of its workforce across corporate and supply chain and close 150 lower-producing stores as part of a broader turnaround plan.

Shares at the time tumbled more than 20% on the news.
