American author and benefactor MacKenzie Scott live in the United States. A 4% share in Amazon, the firm founded by her ex-husband Jeff Bezos, has given her a net worth of US$27 billion as of the end of 2022. Thus, Scott is the 35th richest person in the entire globe and the third richest woman in the United States. Scott was included in Time’s list of the 100 Most Influential People of 2020 and Forbes’ list of the World’s Most Powerful Women in 2021.
According to family law attorney David Glass, “there won’t be any trials” because of the separation agreements between MacKenzie Scott and Dan Jewett, as reported by PEOPLE.
Mackenzie Scott Early Life
MacKenzie Scott Tuttle was born to Holiday Robin (née Cuming), a housewife, and Jason Baker Tuttle, a financial planner, on April 7, 1970, in San Francisco, California. She is the middle of three siblings; her brothers are the oldest and youngest. G. Scott Cuming, an executive and general counsel for El Paso Natural Gas, was the inspiration for her middle name. At age six, she created her first book, The Book Worm, which sadly perished in a flood.
She completed her education at the prestigious Hotchkiss School in Lakeville, Connecticut, and received her diploma in 1988. Toni Morrison, the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, was Tuttle’s professor when she attended Princeton University and praised her as “one of the best students I’ve ever had in my creative writing seminars.” Tuttle graduated with a bachelor’s degree in English in 1992.
Mackenzie Scott Divorce
A divorce from MacKenzie Scott’s second marriage has been finalized and she is once again a single woman. TMZ has received legal documents showing that Mackenzie and Dan Jewett’s divorce was just formalized in Washington state, making Mackenzie the ex-wife of billionaire Jeff Bezos.
As we previously reported, MacKenzie filed for divorce in September, a little over a year after she and her husband tied the knot, bringing an end to her second marriage. As you may recall, in March of 2021, MacKenzie and Dan, a chemistry teacher at the private school her children attend in Washington, D.C., announced their nuptials. No offspring came from their union.

MacKenzie was married to Jeff from 1993 until their divorce in 2019; after the first marriage ended, she received roughly $37 billion, of which she donated half to charity. The documents state that MacKenzie and Dan have signed a separation agreement that will govern the distribution of any shared property. The court does not have that agreement on file.
Tuttle assisted Morrison with research for Jazz, published in 1992 after she finished college. She met Jeff Bezos while working as an administrator for the New York-based hedge fund D. E. Shaw.
Mackenzie Scott Career
Scott and Bezos got married in 1993, and then in 1994 they left D. E. Shaw, relocated to Seattle, and founded Amazon. Scott was an early Amazon employee who contributed to the company’s naming, business model, accounting, and order fulfillment. In addition, she secured the first freight contract for the business. After 1996, Scott decided to spend less time on the company in order to devote more time to her family and writing.
Scott published her first novel, The Testing of Luther Albright, in 2005; it went on to win an American Book Award the following year. She said that she spent the previous decade helping Bezos establish Amazon, having three children, and writing the book. Her old professor Toni Morrison called it “a rarity: a smart novel that hurts and fills the heart” in her review. In 2013, she released Traps, her second novel. NPD BookScan reports that her books did not do particularly well.
