Bezos graduated from Princeton University in 1986 after being born in Albuquerque, raised in Houston, and living in Miami. He has degrees in computer science and electrical engineering. From 1986 to the beginning of 1994, he worked on Wall Street in a range of related disciplines. In the latter part of 1994, Bezos created Amazon while driving from New York to Seattle.

Since starting as an online bookstore, the business has grown to offer a wide range of other e-commerce goods and services, including streaming audio and video, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence. Through its Amazon Web Services division, it is currently the largest provider of virtual assistants and cloud infrastructure services as well as the largest online sales firm, Internet company, and corporation by revenue.

Bezos and his ex-wife MacKenzie have four children — three sons and one daughter.  Bezos and MacKenzie have not made their affiliation with any religion public. Public records, family history, and biographical information all point to both of them having been brought up in a Christian environment.

After a “long period” of separation, Bezos and MacKenzie declared their intention to get divorced on Twitter on January 9, 2019. On April 4, 2019, the divorce was declared legally binding, with Bezos receiving the remaining 25% ($35.6 billion) of the couple’s Amazon stock and MacKenzie receiving the remaining 25%.
