Jamie Dimon had a pretty decent year: The JPMorgan CEO, who steered his bank through Wall Street's meltdown and saw it emerge as arguably the healthiest US bank, took home $20.8 million last year. That's up roughly 1500% over his $1.3 million compensation package the year before, notes Reuters.

The breakdown: $1 million salary, $5 million bonus, almost $8 million in stock awards, $6.2 million in option awards, and about $600,000 in perks.
