The late Dr. Jack Kevorkian, often popularly referred to as "Dr. Death," had an estimated net worth of approximately $100,000. While this might not seem like a very impressive net worth for a celebrity, Kevorkian wasn't a typical celebrity. Instead of making his fortune through sports or entertainment, Kevorkian first achieved notability through his controversial advocacy for assisted suicide. His career in this field began in the 1980s, writing a series of articles about the ethics of euthanasia for a medical journal. He then began to put his ideas into practice, advertising his services as a "death counselor." This got him into trouble with the law, being first charged with murder in 1989 for providing help to a woman with Alzheimer's who wished to commit suicide. He did this using his patented "Thanatron" (death machine), but the charges were eventually dropped. Kevorkian was still a lightning rod for controversy, and he was eventually charged with second-degree murder for providing a lethal injection to one of his patients. He served a more than 8 year prison term before being released for good behavior. In 2011, he passed away from kidney problems and pneumonia associated with Hepatitis C. He was 83 years of age.
Jacob "Jack" Kevorkian ( /k?'v?rki?n/; May 26, 1928 - June 3, 2011), commonly known as "Dr. Death", was an American pathologist, euthanasia activist, painter, author, composer and instrumentalist. He is best known for publicly championing a terminal patient's right to die via physician-assisted suicide; he claimed to have assisted at least 130 patients to that end. He famously said, "dying is not a crime".
Beginning in 1999, Kevorkian served eight years of a 10-to-25-year prison sentence for second-degree murder. He was released on parole on June 1, 2007, on condition he would not offer suicide advice to any other person.
As an oil painter and a jazz musician, Kevorkian marketed limited quantities of his visual and musical artwork to the public.
Kevorkian was born in Pontiac, Michigan to Armenian immigrants. His father Levon was born in the village of Passen, near Erzurum, and his mother Satenig was born in the village of Govdun, near Sivas. His father moved from Turkey in 1912 and made his way to Pontiac, where he found work at an automobile foundry. Satenig fled the Armenian Genocide of 1915, finding refuge with relatives in Paris, and eventually reuniting with her brother in Pontiac. Levon and Satenig met through the Armenian community in their city, where they married and began their family. The couple had a daughter, Margaret, in 1926, followed by son Jacob - who later earned the nickname "Jack" from an American teacher who misread the birth certificate -- and, lastly, the third child, a daughter, Flora. Kevorkian, who taught himself German and Japanese, graduated from Pontiac Central High School with honors in 1945, at the age of 17. In 1952, he graduated from the University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor. Kevorkian never married. He completed residency training in anatomical and clinical pathology and briefly conducted research on blood transfusion, but was unable to function effectively as a hospital pathologist. Kevorkian left the active p
