MacKenzie Scott, who is the billionaire ex-wife of Amazon co-founder Jeff Bezos has now married a Seattle teacher Dan Jewett. It should be noted that Mackenzie Scott’s new husband is a teacher at a private school where her children are currently pursuing their education.
Scott, whose overall net worth is evaluated at around USD 53 billion parted ways with Jeff Bezos in 2019 after 25 years of marriage.
Mackenzie Scott’s new husband by the name of Dan Jewett (50 years old) teaches science at the Seattle Lakeside School. Meanwhile, Scott is yet to disclose when did she tie the knot with Dan Jewett.
Meanwhile, Amazon boss Jeff Bezos added in a statement via an Amazon spokesman: “Dan is such a great guy, and I am happy and excited for the both of them”.
Scott and Jewett disclosed their marriage publicly on Saturday in a post on the ‘Giving Pledge’, a site where super-rich people solemnly promise to devote their wealth to others.
Meanwhile, Dan Jewett posted on Giving Pledge that he was joining Scott’s ‘commitment to pass on an enormous financial wealth to serve others’.
“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,” Jewett wrote.
“I have been a teacher for the majority of my life, as well as a grateful student of the generosity of those around me. This has meant doing my best to follow their example by passing on resources of all kinds – from time, to energy, to material possessions – when I have had them to give.
And now, 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 an enormous financial wealth to serve others,” he added in a statement.
