Pioneer of the personal computer revolution and digital guru Steve Jobs was born in San Francisco on February 24, 1955.
Jobs was adopted at birth by Paul Reinhold Jobs and Clara Jobs. His
biological parents, a Syrian-born man and Swiss-American woman, decided
to place him for adoption because his biological mother’s family did not
approve of her daughter’s relationship.
Jobs attended Reed College, in Portland, Oregon, for only six months.
After dropping out, Jobs worked for a short time at Atari, inventors of
the first modern videogame system, then traveled to India, where he
began a life-long devotion to Zen Buddhism. After returning to America,
Jobs met Steve Wozniak, a gifted electrical engineer, and the two
founded the “Apple Computer Company.” The rest, as they say, is history.
In 2005, after having revolutionized the ways in which we interact,
both with technology and one another, Steve Jobs delivered the
Commencement address at Stanford University. He opened up about his
adoption: “It started before I was born. My biological mother was a
young, unwed college graduate student, and she decided to put me up for
adoption. She felt very strongly that I should be adopted by college
graduates, so everything was all set for me to be adopted at birth by a
lawyer and his wife. Except that when I popped out they decided at the
last minute that they really wanted a girl. So my parents, who were on a
waiting list, got a call in the middle of the night asking: ‘We have an
unexpected baby boy; do you want him?’ They said: “Of course.’ My
biological mother later found out that my mother had never graduated
from college and that my father had never graduated from high school.
She refused to sign the final adoption papers. She only relented a few
months later when my parents promised that I would someday go to
college. You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only
connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will
somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your
gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me
down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
