JEFF Bezos’ ex-wife MacKenzie Scott announced on March 7, 2021 that she remarried Dan Jewett.

Who is MacKenzie Scott’s husband Dan Jewett?
MacKenzie Scott, 50, remarried Seattle science teacher Dan Jewett.
Jewett teaches at the private Lakeside School in Washington state, reportedly the school that Scott’s children attend.
He announced he was married to Scott on the website for the Giving Pledge, which is a movement created by Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett to encourage billionaire philanthropy.
Jewett wrote: “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.”
Adding: “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.”
What is MacKenzie Scott’s net worth?
Scott has a net worth of more than $60 billion, but has given away money to a number of causes including climate change, racial inequality and public health.
So far, she has donated over $1.7 billion of her wealth since her split from Bezos.
