We are talking about a very ambitious man whose roots are coming from politics, and this was his call too. Jeb Bush was Florida’s governor for nine years and also a candidate for the president of the United States of America. Find out more about his background and interests.
Jeb Bush was born in Midland, Texas, on the 11th of February 1953. He is coming from a very famous family as his father George H.W. Bush and brother George W. Bush were both dominating in politics at their time. They were both presidents of the US at some point. Junior Bush was attracted to public life since he was very young.
He went to Mexico as an English teacher which was part of the internship program in his high school. His choice for studies was the University of Texas, where he graduated and got a diploma in Latin American affairs.
A celebrated politician has decided to leave Texas in the 1980s, and he settled in Florida. His call was as a real estate agent. The first time when he tried to become a governor was in 1994 and he failed. Still, the second try was more successful and he finally became a governor of Florida in 1998.
Well, the known governor of Florida had to give up on this title in 2007 since he was not entitled on the third election in a row. He left a good impression for sure since he was on top of the economy improvement in the state, educational process and sustainability as well.
There were rumors in 2008 that he tried to become part of the US Senate, but somehow that did not work out for him. In 2015 he even spoke in media very openly about him being a candidate for the US presidency.
He had a wish to become the third family member who was in charge of the country “biggest” office. In this challenge, he had too severe candidates on the other side – Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz. This election did not work well for him, so he had to give up.
We highlighted some of his top quotes:
“I’m happy to be helping people that are passionate about empowering parents for student learning.”
“Well, I think lower taxes and less regulation would actually promote growth.”
“If more people were actively engaged in advocating their positions, I think we’d have a better society.”
While on the internship program during high school, this politician met the love of his life – Columba. He married her 46 years ago, and they are together up to date. He never hesitated to mention her during his speeches.
Surprisingly, she was never into politics. As she said several times for media, they do not talk about political issues, laws, and states, but they do talk about their children, pets, and other exciting subjects.
The happy couple has three children – George, Noelle, and John. In 1995, he changed his religion – from Anglicanism to Roman Catholicism.
