Chris Hughes Net Worth: Chris Hughes is an American entrepreneur who has a net worth of $850 million. Chris Hughes is most famous for co-founding Facebook with Harvard roommates Mark Zuckerberg, Dustin Moskovitz, and Eduardo Saverin. Hughes has since spearheaded Barack Obama's online campaign, was named the Entrepreneur in Residence at General Catalyst Partners, and is part of the 17-member UN commission devoted to improving AIDS/HIV prevention programming around the world called "UNAIDS". He also started his own non-profit called Jumo. Chris Hughes was born on November 26, 1983 in Hickory, North Carolina where he was raised as an evangelical Lutheran. He graduated from Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts. During his freshman year at Harvard, Hughes met and was recruited by Mark Zuckerberg who was still working in the early stages of Facebook at that time. For the next two years, Hughes was unofficially responsible for beta testing and product suggestions. It was Hughes's idea to open Facebook to other schools, which eventually led to opening Facebook to the outside world. As a result, Hughes became the de-facto Facebook spokesperson. In 2004, Hughes, Zuckerberg and Moskovitz traveled to Palo Alto during their summer break. After the summer break, while Zuckerberg and Moskovitz decided to remain in Palo Alto, Hughes decided to return to Harvard to continue his studies. In 2006, he graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University with a Bachelor of Arts in history and literature. He then relocated to Palo Alto to rejoin Facebook. In 2007, he left Facebook to become the director of the Obama campaign. In March 2012, he purchased a majority stake in "The New Republic" Magazine. He is now the publisher and editor-in-chief of the magazine.
