Jeff Bezos 10 Fast Facts, Bio, Wiki
In 1992, Bezos was working for D. E. Shaw in Manhattan when he met novelist MacKenzie Tuttle, who was a research associate at the firm; the couple married a year later.
In 1994, they moved across the country to Seattle, Washington, where Bezos founded Amazon. Bezos and his now ex-wife MacKenzie are the parents of four children: three sons, and one daughter adopted from China.
Bezos and MacKenzie have not disclosed their religious status. Public records, family history, and biographical details suggest that both were raised under some form of Christianity.
In March 2003, Bezos was a passenger in a helicopter that crashed in West Texas while surveying land to buy for Blue Origin; the other 3 occupants in the helicopter were pilot Charles “Cheater” Bella, Amazon lawyer Elizabeth Korrell, and local rancher Ty Holland.
All survived; Bezos sustained only minor injuries and was discharged from a local hospital the same day.
Bezos portrayed a Starfleet official in the 2016 movie Star Trek Beyond, and joined the cast and crew at a San Diego Comic-Con screening. He had lobbied Paramount for the role apropos of Alexa and his personal/professional interest in speech recognition.
His one line consisted of a response to an alien in distress: “Speak Normally.” In his initial discussion of the project which became Alexa with his technical advisor Greg Hart in 2011, Bezos told him that the goal was to create “the Star Trek computer.”
Bezos’s family office Zefram LLC is named after Zefram Cochrane, a character from Star Trek.
On January 9, 2019, Bezos and MacKenzie announced on Twitter their intent to divorce after a “long period” of separation.
On April 4, 2019, the divorce was finalized, with Bezos keeping 75% of the couple’s Amazon stock and MacKenzie getting the remaining 25% ($35.6 billion) in Amazon stock. However, Bezos would keep all of the couple’s voting rights.
Bezos published an online essay on February 7, 2019, in which he accused American Media, Inc. owner David Pecker of “extortion and blackmail” for threatening to publish intimate photos of Bezos and current girlfriend Lauren Sánchez if he did not stop his investigation into how his text messages and other photos had been leaked to the National Enquirer.
Jeff Bezos is an American business tycoon who is best known for being the founder and CEO of Amazon, a multinational technology company. A net worth of more than $200 billion (as of April 2021) makes him the richest person on the planet.
When Jeff was born, his mother was just 17 years old and was still in high school.
Jeff’s parents, Jacklyn and Ted, separated just after a year of their marriage.
When Jeff was just four years old, Jacklyn got married to Miguel “Mike” Bezos, a Cuban who immigrated to the United States alone at the age of 15. After the marriage, he adopted Jeff legally and took the responsibility to raise him.
After the wedding, the family moved to Houston (Texas) where Jeff spent most of his childhood and developed a close bond with his grandfather.
During his childhood, he developed an interest in computers from his grandfather, Lawrence Preston Gise, who worked as Regional Director at the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission.
From a young age, Jeff started displaying technological proficiencies and scientific interests.
The young Jeff was always inventing something- hovercraft, a solar cooker, a robot, an electric alarm, etc. Once, he invented an electric alarm to keep his siblings out of his room.
He was considered a brilliant student at his school and was his high school’s valedictorian.
His first job was with Fitel, a startup telecom company. He worked there for two years. Later, he worked at ‘Bankers Trust’ and ‘D.E. Shaw,’ an investment management firm on Wall Street.
While working at D.E. Shaw, he fell in love with Mackenzie Sheri Tuttle who was his colleague.
In 1994, he quit his job at D.E. Shaw to start Amazon.com. Jeff rented a house and started working from his garage with his first employee, Shel Kaphan.
He named Amazon.com after the mighty South American river, and the arrow in the logo of Amazon indicates that customers can buy anything from a to z on the site.
In 1999, Jeff Bezos was named “Time Person of the Year.”
He believes in working with a small team and has devised a rule called the “Two Pizza Rule”: if a team cannot be fed with two pizzas, it’s too large.
He is, in fact, a frugal and showed his frugality early on when he founded Amazon.com from his garage, as he turned a wooden door into a table. Although rather than calling it “frugality,” it should be termed as “creativity.”
He is considered a generous donor too, as he donated $2.5 million for a same-sex marriage cause in Washington when one of his employees, Jennifer Cast, asked only $100,000 for donation.
In 2003, he almost encountered a fatal accident; when he had a helicopter accident that gave him minor head lacerations.
In 2013, he made headlines when he bought the Washington Post for $250 million.
In his childhood, Jeff had an immense interest in aerospace, and in 2000, he realized his dream when he started a Space company “Blue Origin, LLC.” The vision of this company is to bring down the cost of Space travel, so everyone can go into Space.
He made a surprise cameo in the 2016 film ‘Star Trek Beyond.’
In 2018, he was listed first on the Forbes list of the World’s Billionaires.
