We all know there are a lot of rich people in the Garden State, so which person was New Jersey's richest person in 2019?

Well, according to Forbes, that honor belongs to the the co-founder of Two Sigma Investments, and Millburn resident John Overdeck. It is hedge funds that have brought him his fortune.

He started his career in hedge funds, but also spent a couple of years at Amazon before starting his own firm in 2001 with David Siegel. So how much net worth do you have to have to be the richest person in New Jersey for 2019?

How does this sound? A net worth of $6,100,000,000. That is 6100 million if I'm doing my math right. Six billion one hundred million, right? Somebody correct me if I'm wrong on that.

I don't often deal with numbers that large, unless it's my tracking number on an order I made. Anyway, whatever is the actual correct number on that, it's a lot of money!
