Johnelle Hunt Net Worth: Johnelle Hunt is an American businesswoman who has a net worth of $2.1 billion. Born in 1939, Hunt made her fortune as a co-founder of J.B. Hunt Transport Services (JHBT), America's trucking giant. A drop-out of the University of Arkansas, she started the trucking business with her late husband Johnnie Bryan Hunt, Sr. in 1969. Through the years, JHBT grew into one of the largest trucking companies in the country with more than 12,000 trucks and trailers that provide transportation services to numerous customers in Canada, U.S. and Mexico. One year after the death of her husband in 2006, Hunt resigned from the company, but she still remains its major shareholder holding 17%. Moreover, in 2012, she was appointed as the Woman of the Year by the Women's Foundation of Arkansas for her contributions to the community.
Johnnie Bryan Hunt, Sr. (February 28, 1927 ??? December 7, 2006), better known as J. B. Hunt, was an American entrepreneur who founded J.B. Hunt Transport Services, the largest publicly owned trucking company in the USA. His company is based in Lowell, Arkansas.


Hunt was born in Heber Springs, Arkansas. Growing up during the great depression put a large strain on him.
His first job was working for his uncle in his sawmill so that the family could survive. After a brief time in the US Army, Hunt spent the 1950s as a lumber salesman, auctioneer, and truck driver before starting a rice hulls business with his wife Johnelle in 1961. Unfortunately his first attempt at the trucking business was not a success. He lost roughly $19,000. He returned to the trucking industry in 1969, with five tractors and seven trailers.
Hunt was known throughout his life for his generosity, and was famous for carrying around a money clip containing $100 bills, which he would hand out to people he felt could use the money.
Hunt began to remove himself from the company when he stepped down as president in 1982, but was still a main fixture within the company and remained chairman of the board until 1995. On December 31, 2004, Hunt retired from the company that he founded over 37 years earlier, but remained its largest shareholder.
Hunt died on December 7, 2006 after sustaining a head injury during a fall in ice on December 2, 2006. He had been in critical condition for several days at a hospital in Springdale, Arkansas.
In 2005, Springdale Public Schools opened a new elementary school named after J.B. Hunt. The Hunt family donated the land for the school, valued at over $500,000. This K-5 elementary school is located on Silent Grove Road in Springdale, Arkansas. Hunt was a frequent visitor to the school after it opened. The kids loved when J.B. came to school wearing his big cowboy hat and took time to read them a story or two.[citation needed]
