Jeff Bezos is the founder of the world-famous Amazon, which is said to be one of the largest and most successful online marketplaces in the world. There’s been a lot of talks recently about who the richest person in the world is, and Jeff Bezos’s net worth has been fluctuating a lot recently. However, Jeff has now de-throned Bill Gates and has become the richest man in the world. Jeff Bezos is now at the top on the list of the richest with an estimated net worth of $135.5 billion.

Jeff Bezos was born on the 12th January 1964, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. His grandfather was a regional director of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission there, and he retired early to the ranch. Jeff spent many summers there as a youth, working with him. Bezos often displayed scientific interests and technological proficiency; he once rigged an electric alarm to keep his younger siblings out of his room.
Jeff attended Miami Palmetto High School, where he took part in the Student Science Training Program at the University of Florida, receiving a Silver Knight Award.
Jeff graduated in 1986 from Princeton University and went to work on Wall Street in the field of computer science. After that, he then built a network for international trade for a company known as Fitel.
Later, he worked at Bankers Trust, and he also worked on Internet-enabled business opportunities at the hedge fund company D. E. Shaw & Co. In 1994, he founded Amazon.com, which started out as an online used bookstore. The inventory quickly grew, as did the popularity of the site; and in 1998, Jeff made the Forbes 400 list. As of June 2018, Jeff Bezos’ net worth is roughly $135.5 billion.
