How Jeff Bezos’ Biological Father Found Out His Son Was the Amazon Billionaire
July 9, 2019
Jeff Bezos changed the way we shop forever when he founded Amazon in 1994. He later became the world’s richest man. In 2014, Inside Edition met his biological father, Ted Jorgensen, a bicycle repairman in Phoenix. He was a teenage circus performer when he married Bezos’ mom and after their marriage broke up, Jorgensen gave up custody of his son. “Big mistake,” he told Inside Edition. He only realized who his son was when a biographer contacted him. Jorgensen passed away in 2015.
