Issa tops The Hill's 50 Wealthiest: Page 5 of 51


The retiring Rockefeller's family fortune is legendary.

As the great-grandson of oil tycoon John D. Rockefeller, the majority of the West Virginia Democrat's riches come from three different bank accounts worth a total of at least $80 million.

His wife, Sharon Percy Rockefeller, sits on the board of directors for PepsiCo Inc. and owns more than $1 million of stock in the soda manufacturer. The Rockefellers also have two properties worth at least $1.5 million together: a New York City condo attributed to Sharon and a Charleston, W.Va., residence.

Rockefeller's wealth increased slightly from 2011 after a mortgage held by his spouse on the condo fell by a half-million dollars.
