Abid Gilani, a senior vice president of Wells Fargo’s hospitality finance group, was among the seven people killed in the crash, a company spokeswoman confirmed Wednesday.

He was a “valued member” of the division, she said.

Gilani worked at Wells Fargo for about a year and had been at Marriott for the previous seven, according to LinkedIn.

The Amtrak train originated in Washington, D.C. and was headed for New York. It derailed and crashed at about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday. At least 200 people were injured.

When it crashed, the train was traveling about 106 mph in an area where the maximum speed limit is 50 mph. All seven cars and the engine derailed.

One of the other victims of the crash was Jim Gaines, a video software specialist for the Associated Press. He worked there since 1998 and was returning home after meetings in Washington, the AP said.

Gaines, 48, is survived by his wife, Jacqueline, and two children, 11-year-old Anushka and 16-year-old Oliver.

Gaines “leaves behind a legacy of professionalism and critical accomplishment, kindness and humor,” wrote AP CEO Gary Pruitt in an email message to staffers.

U.S. Naval Academy midshipman Justin Zemser was also among among those killed in the crash.

And Rachel Jacobs, the CEO of a small tech company in Philadelphia, is missing and may have been on the train, according to her company ApprenNet.

Jacobs has not been heard from since she “left a meeting with the intent to board the train,” said ApprenNet cofounder Karl Okamoto, a friend and colleague.

Jacobs is married with a two-year-old son. She was recently appointed as CEO and commuted from her home in New York City to her job in Philadelphia.
