Oliver Daemen is a Dutch teenager who came to the spotlight after news about him joining Jeff Bezos’ spaceflight surfaced in the media. He is Blue Origin’s first paying customer and replaces the anonymous auction winner. On July 20, he’ll be making history as the youngest person to travel in space.
Originally from the Netherlands, Oliver Daemen was born in the year 2003. The 18-year-old teenager is Dutch by nationality and belongs to the Caucasian ethnicity. He graduated high school in 2020. He will attend the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands to study physics and innovation management.
Net Worth, Salary, and Income
As of now, Daemen hasn’t ventured into any profession yet. He just finished high school last year and will attend college this fall. But he did spend his gap year working on getting his pilots license, and his trip to space is the culmination of a lifelong interest.

As the son of a multimillionaire, Daemen lives a luxurious lifestyle. His father has a massive net worth of between $500 million and $1.2 billion.
