Bezos’ Ex-wife Marries Teacher, MacKenzie Scott
MacKenzie Scott, the ex-wife to Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder, has remarried — about two years after her high-profile divorce from the industrialist.
Scott and Bezos had parted ways in 2019 after agreeing to a record-setting sum of $35 billion as the settlement.
The philanthropist, 50, has now married Dan Jewett, a science teacher at the prestigious Seattle school attended by her children, in an event that held on Sunday.
Both parties acknowledged their new-found union in a letter addressed to the public via a page on their website.
“I have been a teacher for the majority of my life, as well as a grateful student of the generosity of those around me,” the letter, which was fronted by Jewett, read in part.
“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.
“I have seen many ways that MacKenzie has seen her efforts enhanced when she acts on the belief that those with common values but different perspectives, strengths, and experiences are essential to effecting positive change.
“We are united in that understanding and in our excitement for all we have to learn from people working in service of others. I look forward to the growth and learning I have ahead as a part of this undertaking with MacKenzie.”
Scott was married to Bezos for 25 years.
