The actor is internationally recognized, but his brother, Douglas (real name Jack Mitchell Pitt), is a notable figure in business and humanitarianism. Doug began his career in 1991 by founding a technology company. After selling part of the company, he later bought it back, and today it operates as the Pitt Technology Group.

He also owns the Pitt Development Group, a company specializing in medical office properties across various U.S. cities. In terms of philanthropy, he has served on the boards of several charities, including Make-A-Wish and the Red Cross. In 2008, he founded Care to Learn, a foundation dedicated to addressing the food, hygiene, and health needs of low-income students to help them perform better in school.

Doug even participated in several projects in Africa and was named a Goodwill Ambassador in the Republic of Tanzania for his efforts.

It’s important to remember that success isn’t a competition, especially among siblings. Although it’s natural to feel a twinge of envy when a sibling achieves great things, allowing jealousy to consume you can strain your relationship and impede your own progress.
