Steve Jobs


Steve Jobs’ birth parents met at the University of Wisconsin, and the young couple quickly beginning a relationship despite the wishes of Steve’s maternal grandfather.  Pregnant and forbidden to marry her Syrian-born boyfriend, Steve’s birthmother Joanne gave her son up for adoption shortly after giving birth. The former Apple CEO was adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs.  In his authorized biography, Steve said, “Paul and Clara are 100% my parents.  And Joanne and Abdulfatah – are only a sperm and an egg bank.  It’s not rude, it’s the truth.”
