When Did Dan Jewett And MacKenzie Scott Get Married?

It is unknown for certain when Dan and MacKenzie first became acquainted or when they tied the knot as a pair. Forbes estimates that MacKenzie’s net wealth is $53 billion, which has enabled him to maintain a certain amount of discretion. “Up until now, I’ve been referring to this as discrete transparency. Benjamin Soskis, a senior research associate in the Center on Nonprofits and Philanthropy at the Urban Institute, said to The New York Times that this form of discretion and narrative control is “essentially transparency but fully on the givers’ own terms.” “Although it creates the appearance of transparency, it is entirely up to the choice of the individual.”

 

 

“I have no doubt that tremendous value comes when people act quickly on the impulse to give,” wrote MacKenzie. While she didn’t mention her new husband in her statement, she did speak about the value of everyday heroes who have a huge effect on our lives. “No drive has more positive ripple effects than the desire to be of service. There are lots of resources each of us can pull from our safes to share with others — time, attention, knowledge, patience, creativity, talent, effort, humor, compassion. And sure enough, something greater rises up every time we give: the easy breathing of a friend we sit with when we had other plans, the relief on our child’s face when we share the story of our own mistake, laughter at the well-timed joke we tell to someone who is crying, the excitement of the kids in the school we send books to, the safety of the families who sleep in the shelters we fund. These immediate results are only the beginning. Their value keeps multiplying and spreading in ways we may never know.”

 

Do Dan and MacKenzie’s Ex, Jeff Bezos, Get Along?

It would be embarrassing to have one of the wealthiest men in the globe as your adversary, but Jeff Bezos has stated that he is okay with his ex-wife moving on with her life and finding love again. According to the Washington Post, Jeff Bezos was quoted as saying, “Dan is such a lovely guy, and I’m pleased and excited for the both of them.”
