Jon Brower Minnoch Net Worth

Jon Brower Minnoch was bornon September 29, 1941 in Bainbridge Island, Washington, USA, United States, is Heaviest Man. Jon Brower Minnoch was an American man, who at his peak weight, was said to be the heaviest human ever recorded, weighing about 1,400 lbs (635 kilograms; 100 stone). However, this figure was a just a close estimation because his tremendous size, lack of mobility, and declining health prevented the use of a scale. The Washington man Minnoch suffered from a condition named generalized edema, which is believed to have contributed considerably to his bulk. The condition causes abnormal accumulation of fluid in the body tissues which results in excessive weight gain and certain serious medical issues. He was hospitalized and treated at the University of Washington Medical Center for some time. After his condition became worse and ultimately incurable, the medical professionals stopped treating him and Minnoch died 23 months later, at age 41. At the time of death, the heavy man weighed about 800 lbs (or 363 kg). Coming to his personal life, Minnoch was married to Jeannette who weighed around 110-lb. This made the record for the greatest difference in weight between a married couple. He was also the father of two children.

Biography/Timeline

1978

Minnoch's weight continued to increase steadily until his hospitalization in March 1978 at age 36 due to cardiac and respiratory failure. That same year, he broke a record for the greatest difference in weight between a married couple when he married his 110-lb (50 kg) wife Jeannette and later fathered two children. Minnoch was diagnosed with massive generalized edema, a condition in which the body accumulates excess extracellular fluid. Upon his hospital admission, it was estimated by endocrinologist Dr. Robert Schwartz that over 900 lbs (408 kg) of his overall body mass was retained fluid.

1983

He was discharged from the hospital after 16 months on a strict diet of 1,200 kcal (5,000 kJ) per day. He weighed 476 lb (216 kg; 34.0 st), having lost approximately 924 lb (419 kg; 66.0 st), the largest human weight loss ever documented. However, he was readmitted to the hospital just over a year later in October 1981, after his weight increased to 952 lb (432 kg; 68.0 st). With his underlying condition of edema being incurable and difficult to treat, the decision was made to discontinue treatment, and he died 23 months later on September 10, 1983, aged 41. At the time of his death, he weighed 798 lb (362 kg; 57.0 st) with a Body Mass Index of 105.3.
