Just 20 minutes north of downtown Baltimore, there is a small town called Cockeysville, one of Maryland's best places to live.
The city is home to 21,000 people, none of them wealthier than Jim Davis. The city's median household income doesn't exceed $65,420, and the median property value is about $333,000. However, Jim Davis won't know it.
His net worth exceeds $4.6 billion, making him the richest man in Cockeysville and the fourth richest person in Maryland. Though Davis remains notoriously private, he has built a business empire that has continued to have a significant impact across Greater Baltimore for the last 40 years.
