Just how rich is Palmetto High’s Jeff Bezos?


Who says a public education isn’t good enough? Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Miami’s Palmetto High School Class of ‘82, ranks No. 2 on Forbes’ newly released Richest in Tech list, with an estimate worth of $66.2 billion.

Topping the list was — as usual — Microsoft founder Bill Gates, at $78 billion. Rounding out the list is No. 3, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerburg, with $54 billion; No. 4 and Oracle’s Larry Ellison, $51.7 billion. Google co-founders Larry Page ($39 billion) and Sergey Brin (38.2 billion) rank 5 and 6 respectively.

The top 15 are worth a combined $982 billion.
