Steve Jobs

1. Steve Jobs

The Apple cofounder was born in San Francisco in 1955 to Joanne Simpson and Abdulfattah John Jandali, an unwed couple who put Jobs up for adoption as an infant. He was adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs, a machinist and accountant respectively, and grew up in Los Altos, California. As an adult, Jobs tracked his family history, discovering that his parents later wed and had a daughter, Mona Simpson, who Jobs now has a “close relationship” with, according to The Apple Museum.
