World richest man Jeff Bezos’ ex-wife gets married to school teacher

-

Billionaire philanthropist MacKenzie Scott, one of the world’s richest people, has re-married a science teacher Dan Jewett barely two years after divorcing from Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.

According to Forbes, MacKenzie Scott is the world’s 22nd-richest person worth some $53 billion. Her 2019 divorce from Bezos after 25 years of marriage left her with a 4% stake in Amazon.

On a website titled Giving Pledge which was created by Warren Buffett, Bill Gates and his wife Melinda in 2010, Mackenzie proudly noted that she lives with her husband and four children.

Jewett has been a teacher for decades and most recently taught chemistry at the private Lakeside School in Seattle, which Scott’s children attend.

In a statement on the Giving Pledge page, Jewett, said, “In a stroke of happy coincidence, I am married to one of the most generous and kind people I know—and joining her in a commitment to pass on enormous financial wealth to serve others.

“I look forward to the growth and learning I have ahead as a part of this undertaking with MacKenzie.”

In the letter, Jewett also mentioned about being a teacher mostly and has never “sought to gather the kind of wealth required” for charity pledges.

“It is strange to be writing a letter indicating I plan to give away the majority of my wealth during my lifetime, as I have never sought to gather the kind of wealth required to feel like saying such a thing would have particular meaning,” he further added.

In line with her philanthropic activities, Scott has donated nearly $4.2 billion to 384 organizations to fulfill her goals of financially supporting the groups from the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic.
