Miguel's better half was married twice

Comparing the life of today and the past of Jeff was completely different. 

Nobody could think that the richest man in the current scenario was raised by a single mom. 

Yes, Jacklyn (Mother) was first married to Ted Jorgensen (Jeff's father) and gave birth to their son while the lady was just in her teenage period. 

Unfortunately, things didn't work out for them, and they departed when Jeff was only 17 months old.

After Several years, Miguel and Jacklyn tied the knot in 1968, when Jeff was four years old.

What had Miguel's wife faced during her pregnancy as a teenager?

Well, Miguel's wife first got pregnant with her ex-spouse at an early age. 

The former couple began their relationship when they were attending their education in high school. 

Being pregnant at such a younger age, the lady had to suffer from obstacles. 

Moreover, the high school she was in tried to kick her out but being a strong girl, and after some agreement, she somehow managed to stay back. 

Even after completing her school, the lady could not participate in extracurricular activities; neither could she have a conversation with other students, also could not be on stage to receive her diploma.

Jeff's biological father didn't recognize his child

Yes, you heard it true. But most of you might raise queries of how it could a father not recognized his son? 

Well, clarifying the situation, the lady (mother) settled with her new spouse, asking permission from her ex, adopting their son with her new husband, and Miguel's surname. 

After all the agreement, Ted lost contact with the whole family. 

The man even didn't know where and how his son was, living or dead? 

Until 2012, Ted was unaware that his biological son was the founder and CEO of a multinational company because he forgot the last name "Bezos," which was adopted from his stepfather Miguel and was shocked when he got to know about his son.

Where did Miguel and Jacklyn meet before the wedding?

Jacklyn, even after happening so much into her life, didn't stop from pursuing the education. 

She managed to take night classes where she, for the first time, met her husband, Miguel.

Miguel flew to the U.S.A as a refugee who didn't know English verbally. 

Then, he was transferred to Wilmington, Delaware, to attend high school. 

Later he was able to speak English fluently as he was surrounded by Catholics there. 

By his dedication and hard work, he achieved the scholarship to be a student at the University of Albuquerque

At that time, he met Jacklyn; the love of his life, and later wedded with her.

Miguel, also known as Mike, comes from a family with a business background. 

His father was a businessman who owned a lumber mill. He used to sell the different sizes of timber cut in the mill for construction. 

Although Mike’s father did not have any formal business knowledge, he had a great business mind.

His mother used to run her store where she sold baby clothes and fabrics. 

Mike has two siblings, a brother, and a sister. 

He still remembers the happy memories from his childhood when his house used to be always full with his cousins. 

Jeff Bezos Say on Sleep

According to Jeff, good sleep helps him think better. 

In an interview, Jeff gave an example of a senior executive to explain the importance of sleep. 

He says that the senior executive is paid for making a small number of high-quality decisions rather than thousands of decisions a day. 

If he sleeps less than normal hours and gets more productive hours to make more decisions, then that won’t be of any worth because the quality of those decisions might not be good due to tiredness. 

Net worth

Since Miguel's income is difficult to track, his son, Jeff Bezos, has an estimated net worth of $193 billion.
