Jeff Bezos founded the online shopping giant Amazon and built himself a billion-dollar empire. All these, he did by himself.
However, many don’t probably know that the billionaire has a brother, Mark Bezos, who’s a commercial astronaut and was an advertising agent. This celebrity may be the younger brother of the richest man in the world, but he’s also a volunteer firefighter.
This is Mark Bezos, more on his net worth, married life, Wikipedia-bio, and more only in this article.
Mark Bezos Wikipedia
Mark was born in New Mexico in 1970, to Jacklyn (mother) & Ted Jorgensen (father). Jacklyn’s first marriage was to Ted Jorgensen in 1963, and this marriage produced his future billionaire brother Jeff. Jacklyn and Ted separated for reasons unknown in 1965 and married again to Cuban immigrant Mike Bezos.
Then, they had their stepfather, Miguel Mike Bezos the same year he graduated from the New Mexico’s University of Albuquerque. Both Jeff & Mark consider Mike their father as they never got to meet their biological father, Ted.
Mark did not share details on his life. Apart from a few details, his childhood and early years have not been revealed. Mark is the youngest of three siblings, right after his sister Christina, and is six years younger than Jeff. The Bezos family also lived a nomadic lifestyle living in New Mexico, Houston, then Florida.
Back to Mark, he graduated from Texas Christian University in 1992 with an advertising & PR degree. Then, he worked for ad firms across New York City before founding his marketing company in 1999. He also became the director of the Bezos Family Foundation that same year, and then for Robin Hood in 2006.
Mark may not be as wealthy as Jeff, but he certainly is successful and hardworking. Jeff’s baby brother founded a private equity firm in 2019 and, as of 2021, is looking for investors.
Mark Bezos Net Worth
The commercial astronaut’s exact net worth is still a mystery to most. He purchased a $10,000 share in Amazon back in 1996, and that’s $1.3 billion today. Of course, with the condition that he is still in possession of that share.
He lives a lavish lifestyle as he wasn’t only born into a wealthy family, but he earns quite a lot. A testament to his wealth would be his Scarsdale mansion which he purchased for $4 million and remodeled in 2008. But, he put it up for sale twelve years later, in May 2020, for $11 million.
Mark’s net worth is around $40 million. He made it clear that he’s more than just Jeff’s baby brother through his business ventures.
Wife and Kids
The businessman and astronaut married his wife, Lisa Rogers-Bezos, and pictures of the couple are available on the internet.
Bezos met his wife when he moved to New York and has fathered four children with her. It’s unclear how long they dated or when they married, but they seem to have been together a long time.
Lisa’s an ADD/ADHD coach and works for The Bezos Family Foundation alongside her husband.
In order of birth, the couple’s children are: two daughters, Ellie and Mia; and two sons, Owen & Drew.
