slides: Oregon Ranks in the Top 10 States With the Richest People

Thursday, October 16, 2014

 

Nike founder Phil Knight

Oregon ranks number 9 in the top 10 states with the richest people, according to a list of the wealthiest person in each state by CNN Money

Nike founder Phil Knight's $19 billion worth makes Oregon home to a person wealthier than the wealthiest people in 41 other states.

Washington tops the list as it is home to Bill Gates worth $81.5 billion. And the state with the least wealthy person? Wyoming, home to owner of the NHL team New York Islanders and their AHL affiliate Bridgeport Sound Tigers, Jonathan Ledecky worth $340 million (practically living in poverty, huh?) 

Although some of the list makers got a boost from family fortune, 35 out of the 50 people are self-made entrepreneurs, according to Wealth-X. 

Only six women made the list, including Wal-Mart heiress Christy Walton of Arkansas, Abigail Johnson Fidelity Investments CEO of Massachusetts, and Cox Enterprises heiress Anne Cox Chambers of Georgia.
