Jeffrey Preston Jorgensen, known better as Jeff Bezos, was born on January 12, 1964 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He is the only child of Jacklyn (née Gise) and Ted Jorgensen. His roots lead us back to Texas, where his ancestors used to live, and during the years, they have gained a 25,000-acre of land near Cotulla. Thanks to this, from March 2015, Jeff Bezos became one of the largest landholders in Texas.
His love for mechanics was born very early; on one occasion, he dismantled his crib with a screwdriver. When he was a toddler, he was spending a lot of time at the US Atomic Energy Commission in Albuquerque, where his grandfather had been a regional director.
