MacKenzie Scott marries Seattle teacher after Bezos divorce

Philanthropist MacKenzie Scott, one of the world’s richest people, has re-married after her 2019 divorce from Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.

Seattle teacher Dan Jewett acknowledged his marriage to Scott this weekend on the couple’s webpage for the Giving Pledge, a philanthropic organization which encourages the world’s richest people to dedicate a majority of their wealth to charitable causes.

“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,” Jewett wrote.




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

The Wall Street Journal first reported the marriage on Sunday.

The marriage comes after Scott and Bezos divorced after a 25-year-long marriage. The divorce settlement made her among the richest people on Earth, currently holding a USD $53 billion fortune.



Scott has given away billions of dollars as part of a plan to donate a majority of her fortune. In December, for instance, she donated $4.2 billion to 384 organizations.
