Ross Perot, the U.S. billionaire who ran two independent presidential campaigns in the 1990s, died on Tuesday at the age of 89. "Ross Perot, the ground-breaking businessman and loving husband, brother, father and grandfather, passed away early Tuesday at his home in Dallas, surrounded by his devoted family," the Perot family said in a statement. Perot, who was diagnosed with leukemia earlier this year, is survived by his wife, Margot, his five children and 16 grandchildren. "In business and in life, Ross was a man of integrity and action. A true American patriot and a man of rare vision, principle and deep compassion, he touched the lives of countless people through his unwavering support of the military and veterans and through his charitable endeavors," James Fuller, a representative for the Perot family, said in a statement. Perot pioneered the computer data industry by founding his own company Electronic Data Systems in 1962. However, he is more popular for running in the 1992 campaign, which was won by Democrat Bill Clinton. Perot later ran for President again in 1996. Perot's fortune was estimated at $4.1 billion by Forbes magazine in April 2019.
