Ms. Scott, one of the world’s wealthiest women, has married Dan Jewett, a science teacher at a Seattle private school, according to the person.
Ms. Scott has devoted much of her time recently to philanthropic efforts benefiting women-led charities, food banks and Black colleges, among other institutions. Since her divorce, Ms. Scott has given away more than $4 billion of her fortune, according to a post she wrote on Medium in December.
Her ex-husband was quoted saying “Dan is such a great guy, and I am happy and excited for the both of them,” said Mr. Bezos
Mr. Jewett is a teacher at Lakeside School, according to the school’s website.
“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,” Mr. Jewett said in his Giving Pledge letter.
The divorce settlement made her among the richest people on Earth, currently holding a $53 billion fortune according to Forbes after receiving a quarter of Bezos’ Amazon shares.
They were married for 25 years and have four children together.
