Jon Meade Huntsman Sr.
How'd he get so rich? Before founding what would become the multibillion-dollar chemical conglomerate Huntsman in 1982, Wharton grad Huntsman worked in the Nixon White House and later for Dow Chemical. In 2000 he stepped down as CEO but remains executive chairman. A devout Mormon, he is a major benefactor in the Salt Lake City area as well as to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and many other charities. In 2007 he earned the No. 2 spot on the Chronicle of Philanthropy's list of the nation's top 50 givers, as a result of giving away $750 million in contributions and donations.
