Sheldon Adelson, the multi-billion dollar casino mogul and Republican Party megadonor, died Monday at the age of 87.
Adelson died of complications related to the treatment of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. This comes from a press release from Las Vegas Sands Casino that Adelson owned.
Adelson, whose net worth was estimated at around $ 33 billion by Forbes, was one of the most watched donors to support President Donald Trump’s 2020 re-election efforts.
Former President George W. Bush, to whom Adelson had previously donated, called the late entrepreneur “an American patriot, a generous charitable benefactor and a strong supporter of Israel” in a statement.
“Sheldon has been a generous benefactor for charitable causes, particularly medical research and Jewish heritage education. He will be missed by many – no more than his beloved family,” Bush said.
