In Giving Pledge’s letter, Jewett said

“ he was grateful for the exceptional privilege it will be to partner in giving away assets with the potential to do so much good when shared”.

He added:

“thats happy coincidence, I am married to one of the most generous and kind people I know, and joining her in a commitment to pass on an enormous financial wealth to serve others.”

On Wednesday, it was noticed that Jewett’s letter now not appearing on the Giving Pledge page and also mentioned “without fanfare, his name was recently edited out of a Medium post-Ms Scott had written last year about their gifts”, as well as Scott’s Amazon page.
