The Life And Awesomeness Of Jeff Bezos

The Life And Awesomeness Of Jeff Bezos

Jeff Bezos, the founder of http://www.Amazon.com, purchased the http://www.Washington Post for $250 Million!  This article examines some highlights of his life, from childhood until now.  For example….

He spent his childhood summers at his grandparents’ home in Texas, castrating cattle and doing other farmwork.

Barely above the weight limit, Jeff joined a youth pee wee football team. “I thought he was going to get creamed out there,” Jeff’s Mom said.  He was made captain in a couple weeks because he’s the only kid who can remember all the plays.

Jeff almost quit that job to found a news-by-fax service startup with Halsey Minor, who would later found http://www.CNET.com

In 2003, Jeff Bezos almost died in a helicopter crash.

Amazon.com has expanded beyond selling books, to selling almost everything, including music, video, and even its own gadget, the Amazon Kindle. By 2009, Amazon was up 5000% since its IPO.
