Steve Jobs was adopted.

 

Steve Jobs was adopted.



Steve Jobs was born on February 24, 1955, to Abdulfattah Jandali and Joanne Schieble.

Jandali came from a Muslim background and Schieble from a Catholic background, and they weren’t married when Schieble fell pregnant.

Both at the University of Wisconsin at the time, Schieble fled to California to have the birth.

Schieble put Jobs up for adoption after deciding that she should not keep the baby.

However, years later, they had a daughter that they kept.

  In the early light of October 5, 2011, at his home in Palo Alto, California, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs quietly studied the faces of the loved ones surrounding his bed. He was fading in and out of consciousness. Closest to him was his wife of twenty years, Laurene. She was monitoring the pace and frequency of his breathing. He seemed to be climbing, as if ascending a steep mountain trail. Their three children, Reed, Erin and Eve, wrung the perimeter of the room keeping vigil. Steve’s sisters, Patty Jobs and Mona Simpson, were also present.

The intensely private entrepreneurial tech giant who had once declared his goal “to change the world” was at the end of a long and painful illness. Originally diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2004, Jobs had suffered and bravely managed a myriad of health-related complications over the course of seven years. He took three official leaves of absence, including one for a liver transplant in 2009, before resigning as CEO in August of 2011. Investors and admirers tracked and followed his every move. Paparazzi camped outside his home and in the bushes of medical office parking lots, hoping to catch a snapshot of the ailing Silicon Valley titan.
