After the news that Jack Dorsey is stepping down as Twitter’s CEO, there’s been a renewed interest in his personal life, like whether he has a wife or girlfriend.
Born on 19th November 1976 in Missouri, US, the tech entrepreneur co-founded Twitter with Evan Williams, Biz Stone and Noah Glass in March 2006, with him as the CEO. Dorsey came up with the idea of Twitter while studying in his last semester at New York University.
Dorsey, who’s also the CEO and founder of finance payments company Square, is a billionaire, who Forbes estimates to be worth $11.9 billion in 2021.
At the start of the pandemic, Dorsey pledged $1 billion towards the efforts to fight the coronavirus. In March 2021, he permanently banned Donald Trump from Twitter after rioters stormed the Capitol building.
As far as we know, Jack Dorsey isn’t married, but he’s dated several influential women over the years. He was most recently linked to Sports Illustrated model Raven Lyn Corneil.
Reports say Dorsey and Corneil were first spotted together at New York Fashion Week in September 2018, but they’ve now gone their separate ways.
The billionaire previously dated business owner and artist Kate Greer on and off for several years.
Before that, Dorsey was linked to British model and actress Lily Cole, who’s known for Snow White and the Huntsman and St Trinian’s. Cole hit the headlines earlier this year for a controversial photo she posted on Instagram in which she was wearing a burqa.
Cole was 25 and Dorsey was 36 at the time that they dated, according to reports.
In March 2021, Dorsey sold his first ever tweet as a non-fungible token (NFT) for more than $2.9 million.
His first tweet was posted on 21st March 2006 and says: “just setting up my twttr.”

Before becoming a tech mogul however, Dorsey was reportedly a qualified masseuse, which explains why he’s in touch with his spiritual side and is known to go on retreats and meditate. Dorsey has also dabbled in fashion design.
