The task of overseeing the disposition of Paul Allen’s estate, likely the largest in Washington state history, will fall to his sister, Jody Allen.
Paul Allen, who co-founded Microsoft and used the wealth generated by his stake in the computing giant to fund a range of business, cultural and philanthropic projects, died Oct. 15 of complications from non-Hodgkin lymphoma at age 65. Allen wasn’t married and had no children.
“I have been given the responsibility to steward Paul’s wealth in service of his vision for the future,” Jody Allen said Wednesday in a statement released by a public-relations firm representing Vulcan, the holding company for the Allens’ range of projects. “I will do all that I can to ensure that Paul’s vision is realized, not just for years, but for generations.”
