We know the world’s richest man as Jeff Bezos but that is not his real name. He was born as Jeffrey Preston Jorgensen on January 12, 1964, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He was born to Jackie Gise Jorgensen (Bezos)– a teenager at the time – and Ted Jorgenson, his biological father. Bezos was later adopted by his stepfather Mike Bezos when he married Jackie. Bezos has been quoted saying that he does not have any memory of his biological father, saying that “Mike is my natural father”.
September 2000, Bezos founded Blue Origin, a human spaceflight startup company.Bezos has long expressed an interest in space travel and the development of human life in the solar system. He was the valedictorian when he graduated from high school in 1982. His speech was followed up with a Miami Herald interview in which he expressed an interest to build and develop hotels, amusement parks, and colonies for human beings who were in orbit. The 18-year-old Bezos stated that he wanted to preserve Earth from overuse through resource depletion.
