Top 20 Richest People In America For 2015

T18. John Mars – Net Worth: $23.4 Billion 

John Mars is the first of three people who share the last name of the famous company. Mars, as explained by Forbes, makes products such as Uncle Ben’s rice and also pet products. Odds are that you most know Mars, however, for the candy items that the company has produced over the years. John is one of the three Mars siblings who inherited the brand after their well-known father passed away in 1999. Talk about a nice parting gift from a dad who has a legacy that will live on for generations. None of the three siblings, according to Forbes, are involved with the day-to-day operations of Mars.
