Family

Parents

Bezos, 57, was born to Jacklyn and Ted Jorgensen in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Jacklyn was still a high school student and just 17 years old when she gave birth to Bezos. Ted Bezos was the owner of a city-based bicycle business. After their divorce in 1965, Jacklyn soon after met Miguel “Mike” Bezos and fell in love. When her son was four years old, she and Mike joined Bezos in Houston and begged him to adopt her son.

Mike nodded in agreement and gave Bezos his last name. Mike immigrated to the US from a family of Cuban immigrants and began working as an engineer for Exxon. In 1995, Bezos introduced Mike and Jacklyn to the concept of Amazon. Since the internet was still relatively new at the time, his parents’ $245,573 loan to him was seen as a significant financial risk. As of 2021, Bezos turned $245,573 into $1 trillion.

Siblings

Mark and Christina were the last two children Bezos’s parents had together.

Brother

Sister

Compared to her brothers, Christina Bezos-Poore is more mysterious. Despite contrasting information about her early years that is publicly available, Christina Bezos was reported to have been born in 1969. She met Stephen S. Poore while living in Texas, and they were married in 1995. She now goes by Christina Bezos-Poore and leads a private life.

Children

Despite being one of the wealthiest individuals in the world, Jeff Bezos is just Dad at home. The founder of Amazon and his ex-wife MacKenzie Scott have a total of four children: three sons and a daughter. Bezos works hard to keep his children’s life private despite his worldwide fame.

Only Preston, his oldest son, has a public name. Preston was born in the year 2000, making him about 22 years old. The names and birth years of Bezos and Scott’s three youngest children are among the few information available. Uncertain dates surround the adoption of Bezos and Scott’s daughter from China.

Whole Foods, Audible, IMDb, Goodreads, Alexa, The Washington Post, Blue Origin, Amazon Robotics, Zappos, DPReview, Twitch, Woot.com, Fabric.com, AWS Elemental, and Souq.com generate the remainder.
