24. Laurene Powell Jobs & family
Steve Jobs’ widow is buying a stake in the company that owns the NBA’S Washington Wizards and the NHL’S Washington Capitals. The deal, announced in October, is pending approval. Her Emerson Collective announced in July that it is purchasing a majority stake in The Atlantic magazine. She met Jobs as a graduate student at Stanford’s business school when he came to campus to give a lecture she attended and then asked her out in the parking lot.
