Angel Guallpa-Mayancela, Essex County New Jersey, $89 million
I have got to say, I am not really one to believe in Angels but Angel Guallpa-Mayancelahas won the Mega Millions jackpot, purchasing his ticket at Lisa’s Angel Corporation. A co-incidence or something more spiritual at play here, this lottery fanatic is not quite sure what to believe, and that’s the truth of the matter.
So let me tell you a bit about Angel. He is a hardworking family man who promised his wife that one day she would be married to a millionaire. But he figured that would come through slogging it away at painting other people’s houses. Little did he know that his fortune would be made by being a Mega Millions winner.
So, a little bit about the man behind the money. Angel was 32 at the time of winning the money, with a young kid to take care of. He lives in Orange NJ and never thought he would win big. But he did. He was the only winner of the jackpot, and took home $65.7 million, after all the taxes. What I would do to have to pay that much tax myself!
Anyway, now that he has won the Mega Millions jackpot, I am sure Angel is feeling a little bit more confident about his and his family’s future. I am not quite sure what he did with all his new found dough but here’s guessing that getting up early to paint other people’s back porch isn’t part of his daily routine any more.
