She is not only the richest person in the state of Virginia, but also one of the wealthiest people in the world. According to Bloomberg Billionaire Index, Jacqueline Mars is the 22nd richest person, with a net worth exceeding $49.1 billion.

Given her surname, you can probably tell that she is the heiress to the candy company Mars Inc., the world's largest candy maker that is behind big names like Snickers, M&M's, Milky Way, Orbit, and many others. According to Forbes, she is also the owner of a horse farm that trained many horses ridden by Olympic medalists, and she serves on the board of the National Archives, too.
