This Is Who Won The $543 Million Mega Millions Jackpot In San Jose!

posted by Carolyn McArdle - 

We now know who won that $543 million Mega Millions jackpot on July 24th! It was a pool of office workers at a Wells Fargo Bank in San Jose! 

The group consisted of 10 colleagues who each pitched in $2. They range in ages from 21 to 60 and they decided to take the lump sum which will make them each $18 million (after taxes)! 

You'll remember they bought the ticket at Ernie’s Liquors in San Jose.

The "leader of the pool" said he wanted to go to a small independent store to buy the ticket and that's why he went to Ernie's Liquors. 

All of the workers say they plan to keep on working although over the weekend, there was a photo on social media of that particular Wells Fargo branch in San Jose that implied that the branch was closed for the day with a sign on the door that said "We won the lottery!"

Jack and Carolyn talked about it on the air! Listen here:
