Jeff Bezos’ Ex-Wife MacKenzie Scott Marries Seattle Teacher Dan Jewett
MacKenzie Scott is married!
According to The Wall Street Journal, MacKenzie married Seattle school teacher Dan Jewett on Sunday (March 7).
MacKenzie‘s ex-husband Jeff Bezos congratulated the couple in a statment to WSJ.
“Dan is such a great guy, and I am happy and excited for the both of them,” Jeff told the outlet.
Jeff and MacKenzie announced their divorce in January 2019 after 25 years of marriage. She pledged to give half her $37 billion fortune to charity after their split and donated the money to Warren Buffett and Bill and Melinda Gates initiative Giving Pledge.
Dan added his name to the Giving Pledge website on Saturday (March 6) and wrote in a statement on the site, “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.”
“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,” he continued.
“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.”
