Billionaire Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has become one of the wealthiest and most recognizable figures in the tech world.

Nowadays, the 58-year-old is focused on his other endeavors, including his space exploration company Blue Origin that recently flew actor William Shatner to the edge of space as well as The Washington Post, which he bought in 2013.
