Mackenzie Scott New Husband – Mackenzie Scott Dan Jewett
Mackenzie Scott is married to Seattle-based high school science teacher Dan Jewett. Scott’s commitment to giving is what led to the emergence of the news of her marriage to Jewett. Jewett added his name to Scott’s Giving Pledge web page on March 6, 2021. Scott made her commitment to the pledge on May 25, 2019, soon after her divorce from Bezos.
Jewett wrote on the Giving Pledge web page: “It is strange to be writing a letter indicating I plan to give away the majority of my wealth during my lifetime, as I have never sought to gather the kind of wealth required to feel like saying such a thing would have particular meaning. I have been a teacher for the majority of my life, as well as a grateful student of the generosity of those around me. This has meant doing my best to follow their example by passing on resources of all kinds—from time, to energy, to material possessions—when I have had them to give.”
Jewett also referenced his recent marriage and new wife, noting, “And now, 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.” He continued, “As others writing these letters have indicated in some form or another, I am sure that this pledge will benefit me as much as it benefits anyone else served by it. I look forward to the growth and learning I have ahead as a part of this undertaking with MacKenzie.”
