Even though JPMorgan (JPM) has agreed to pay various regulators, including the SEC, more than $920M to settle charges over its London Whale trading blunder, the agency is still reportedly carrying out a civil investigation of bank staff who are connected to the fiasco.

While CEO Jamie Dimon isn't expected to be probed, the SEC is looking at employees who may have been responsible for alleged problems with internal controls and corporate governance.

One person who might be about to become famous - or infamous - is Jason Hughes, who was responsible for checking the values of the London Whale trades.
