Jeff Bezos' Billionaire Ex-Wife MacKenzie Scott Just Got Remarried
Scott was left will billions after divorcing Bezos, the richest person in the world. Since then, Scott has committed her life to philanthropy and given away billions. Her new husband, Seattle teacher Dan Jewett confirmed the marriage over the weekend.
"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."
Scott's Amazon biography was also updated to say she "lives in Seattle with her four children and her husband, Dan." Bezos and Scott were married for 25 years before a story broke that Bezos had an affair. Scott filed for divorce not long after and received 1/4 of Bezos' Amazon shares. She is currently worth about $53 billion.
Scott stated that her philanthropic ideology has not changed. "My approach to philanthropy will continue to be thoughtful. It will take time and effort and care. But I won't wait. And I will keep at it until the safe is empty," she said.
Her new husband Dan shared a similar mission.
"I have been a teacher for the majority of my life, as well as a grateful student of the generosity of those around me," he said. "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."
