The Astounding Amazon Fortune
Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest person, has been married to writer Mackenzie Bezos since 1993. The couple met while working at an investment firm, got engaged within three months of dating, quit their jobs and relocated to Seattle to establish the global company Amazon. They have since had four children together.
The couple are known for their philanthropic efforts – they donated US$33 million to “Dream.Us” to help support immigrant children and established the Bezos Family Foundation to help underprivileged young people achieve their full potential and contribute meaningfully to society. The couple have a combined net worth of US$92.7 billion and are said to own more plots of land than anyone else in America.
