Jeff Bezos Biography

Jeff Bezos was born Jeffrey Preston Jorgensen in 1964 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to Jacklyn (née Gise) and Ted Jorgensen. Jeff Bezos maternal ancestors were settlers who lived in Texas, and over the generations acquired a 25,000-acre ranch near Cotulla. As of March 2015, Jeff Bezos was among the largest landholders in Texas.

Jeff Bezos’s maternal grandfather was Lawrence Preston Gise, was a regional director of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) in Albuquerque. Before joining the AEC, Gise had worked for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the research and development arm of the Department of Defense that was created in 1958 as the first response by the US government to the Russian launching of Sputnik I, the first artificial Earth satellite in 1957.

Intended to be the counterbalance to military thinking in research and development, DARPA was formed, according to its official mission statement, to assure that the US maintains a lead in applying technology for military capabilities and to prevent other technological surprises from her adversaries.

In 1970, DARPA’s engineers created a model for a communications network for the military that could still function even if a nuclear attack demolished conventional lines of communication: ARPAnet, was the foundation of what would eventually become the Internet. Gise retired early to the ranch, where Jeff Bezos spent many summers as a youth, working with him.

In 1986, Jeff Bezos graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Princeton University with Bachelor of Science degrees in electrical engineering and computer science. While at Princeton, he was also elected to Tau Beta Pi. Jeff Bezos served as the president of the Princeton chapter of the Students for the Exploration and Development of Space.
