The winner of the last Powerball jackpot became $2.04 billion richer and that winner wasn't the only one who took home a financial windfall.

Joe Chahayed, the owner of Joe's Service Center in Altadena, California, where the winning Powerball ticket was sold, became a millionaire on Tuesday.

The California Lottery officials went to his gas station to present Chahayed with his "retailer selling bonus," which every store owner receives for selling a winning jackpot ticket.

"I have 11 grandchildren and I have to share with them. I encourage you to buy a ticket from this station. We guarantee you one day you're going to be winners too," Chahayed said when receiving the check.

Chahayed is also the father-in-law of former Bengals defensive tackle Domata Peko.

"Congratulations Baba Chahayed!!! Alexa play A Mili by [Lil Wayne]" Peko wrote on Twitter.

No winner has come forward yet for the jackpot ticket. According to the California Lottery's Winner's handbook, winners of Powerball in the state have one year to claim their prize.

"Somebody is holding on to a very important piece of paper this morning worth $2.04 billion, that's two billion forty million dollars," said Carolyn Becker, California Lottery spokesperson.

"That person needs to keep it safe. We will not know who they are until they come forward, but we have a second record to talk about today and that's California lottery raised more money than ever thanks to one growing jackpot for California public schools," Becker added.

Chahayed explained that his shop is in a poor neighborhood and he hopes someone won who really needed it. He also said he is glad California public schools will benefit.
