What multi-organ animal has been on earth the longest?

This creature has roamed the seas for at least 500 million years, and possibly 700 million years or more. Yet, it’s lifespan is usually only a few months! If you guessed the jellyfish, you’re correct. This specimen I found while walking a eastern Florida beach the other day.
