Jim Clark net worth: Jim Clark is a Texas-born billionaire businessman who has a net worth of $1.2 billion dollars. A computer scientist and entrepreneur, Jim Clark holds a PhD in Computer Science and is a noted developer of three-dimensional imaging technology. He has founded several companies including, Silicon Graphics Inc., and Netscape Communications Corporation. Born James H. Clark on March 23, 1944, in Plainview, Texas, US, he made a name for himself as the founder of several Silicon Valley technology companies. Having endured a difficult childhood, young Clark dropped out of high school and spent four years in the Navy. But even though he didn't have a high school diploma, Clark managed to earn enough credits to enroll at the University of New Orleans. There, he completed his masters and bachelors degree in Physics and then he finished his PhD in Computer Science from the University of Utah. In 1981, Clark along with several other Sanford graduates started Silicon Graphics Inc. (SGI). The company has soon become the world leader in production of Hollywood movie visual effects and 3-D imaging. Despite SGI's success, he left the company in 1994. At the same time, he and Marc Andreessen set up Netscape, which was instrumental in the launch of the Internet IPO boom on Wall Street during the mid to late 1990s. Among other things, Netscape developed the Secure Sockets Layer Protocol (SSL) for securing online communication, as well as JavaScript, the most widely used language for client-side scripting of web pages. However, Clark would move on once again, this time with the sell of the company to America Online in 1999 and the start of another venture called Healtheon, which today operates under the name WebMD. All in all, Jim Clark became billionaire thanks to his timely investment strategy that favors a big stake in Apple as well as early bets on leading social media companies like Facebook and Twitter. Jim Clark is now retired and lives with his fourth wife Kristy Hinze, an Australian model, and their young daughter. Also, he has two children from previous marriages.
