Jon Huntsman, Sr. (not to be confused with his son, Jon Huntsman, Jr., a famous Republican politician) is a businessman and philanthropist with a net worth of $9 billion. Jon Huntsman, Sr is the richest person in Utah. How was this net worth accumulated? The answer is largely through the success of The Huntsman Corporation, which he founded. In addition to his aforementioned success in business, he is famous for his conservative political beliefs, which place him to the right of much of mainstream America, and even of his Republican son. That didn't stop him from supporting his son's run for president of the United States in 2012, though. Another aspect of Huntsman's career through which he has achieved notability is through his generous charitable donations to causes like homelessness and public health, and has given a reported total of $1.2 billion of his personal fortune away. That sum puts him in rare company: He is said to be one of only 19 of the billionaires in the world to give away more than a billion dollars to charity. He has publicly expressed a desire to give even more of his fortune away, saying he wants to "die broke" by donating all of his fortune to charity by the time he dies.
