Bobby Jindal Net Worth $5 Million
Jindal was born to a family of great educational achievement; his parents left India for the United States and assure Bobby’s citizenship. He attended Baton Rouge High School and was busy with various things such as tennis tournaments, computer newsletters, and retail candy businesses. Despite this, Jindal still managed to matriculate at the top of his class. He graduated from Brown University in 1992 at the age of 20 with a degree in biology and public policy. Around this time he applied in both Harvard Medical School and Yale Law School and was accepted by both schools, but instead went to New College, Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar. There he completed a master’s degree in political science in 1994, then could have studied for a doctorate but declined and instead went on to work for the consulting firm, McKinley & Company.
Later on, Bobby became an intern for the office of Rep. Jim McCrery where he worked on health care policy. McCrery introduced Jindal to Governor Murphy Foster who then appointed him as the Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals. Under his leadership, he helped the state to develop one of the best medical care programs in the country, and he also helped Louisiana’s medical programs rise out of bankruptcy. Bobby then became the executive director of the National Bipartisan Commission on the Future of Medicare. In 1998, he was awarded the Samuel S. Beard Award and the following year, became the youngest president of the University of Louisiana system. His net worth was well established.
In 2001, Bobby was assigned by President George W. Bush as the Assistant Secretary of Health and Human Services for Planning and Evaluation. He worked in that position for two years, until he resigned in 2003 and went on to campaign for the Governorship of Louisiana. He lost by a 2 percent margin though he gained national prominence thanks to it. In 2004, he decided to run for the House of Representatives for Louisiana’s 1st congressional district, and won by a large margin. He was re-elected in 2006 with an even larger margin. Bobby had become the second Indian American to become elected to Congress and was later made the vice-chairman of the House Subcommittee on the Prevention of Nuclear and Biological Attacks.
In 2007, he again campaigned for the position of governor, and this time won, and instituted many improvements in the state which earned him re-election in 2011. All these political positions have helped raise his net worth.
In 2016, Jindal announced his candidacy for president but later suspended his candidacy. He eventually ended his run stating in an interview that it was not his time.
For his personal life, it is known that Bobby was raised in a Hindu family but he was later converted to the Catholic Church. His nickname is derived from the character Bobby Brady from “The Brady Bunch”. He has been married to Supriya Jolly since 1997, and they have three children, one of whom was born with a congenital heart defect which led to surgery. Since then, they have become advocates for children with such defects.
