The person above is not any countries President nor any Prime Minister or any Government employee. He is the luckiest person in the world who has a son whom he never met after his birth. Lets first introduce this person.
Above is the picture of Abdulfattah John Jandali who is 80 years old . Other than this he is the biological father of Steve Jobs the well known icon in computer industry. This might seem shocking that Father is not willing to call his son after a long time.
The Syrian immigrant says he is overcome with guilt for his treatment of Jobs and only learned recently that the child he gave up for adoption was the famous CEO.
“This might sound strange, though, but I am not prepared, even if either of us was on our deathbeds, to pick up the phone to call him,” Jandali said.
“Steve will have to do that, as the Syrian pride in me does not want him ever to think I am after his fortune,” he said.
“Now I just live in hope that, before it is too late, he will reach out to me, because even to have just one coffee with him just once would make me a very happy man,” he said.
Jandali says although he was in love with his now ex-wife Joanne, her father was a tyrant and would not allow her to marry him since he was from Syria. Joanne then upped and moved to San Francisco to give birth to Jobs without her family or Jandali knowing.
“She did not want to bring shame onto the family and thought this was the best for everyone.”
To summarize the story Steve Jobs recently resigned from Apple as a CEO and came into the board of Apple. Now the biological Father of Steve Jobs is afraid to talk to his son because he thinks that both of them won’t talk each other. He also says that he has send Steve many emails and he never replied to one of them.
The history goes like this.
When Steve was born he was left out to some orphanage by his real parents for adoption with a condition that, who ever adopts him, he/she will send him to college. When Steve was adopted, so he didn’t had any money given from his biological Father to carry on with his studies. Steve was adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs and they sent him school and paid for his studies.
When he completed his school, he went to Reeds College from where he was dropped out after a semester with his partners. After some hard work done by Steve and his partners they found out Apple the most innovative and today’s leading company in Computers, Music, Cell Phones and Tablets. After some time Steve also found another company called Pixar which is used to make animations.
After some years of hard work Steve got ill and went on the medical leave. At the first time the reason was unknown. When he went second time on leave so the news broke out that Steve is suffering cancer and he is still fighting from cancer till now.
Now Steve Jobs is 56 and his health is poor than his biological Father. His Father says that he is not after Steve Jobs fortune or money, he only wants to meet the son whom he left as orphan. Abdulfattah is afraid that his son might not talk to him because he might be thinking that his dad is after his fortune and wants to go after his fame and the Apple share he got.
Abdulfattah is willing to meet his son because he is retired and he is fighting from cancer since past 6 years. Steve Jobs has also resigned and came into board, so now he got some free time to spend with family. His biological father is willing to meet him before it is too late and to discuss about this matter.
The another best thing is that his Father has bought the creation of his Son in order to support him.His biological father owns a MAC,iPhone, and iPad.
“I honestly look at these things and cannot believe Steve created them,”
Well our wishes are with Son and Father that they both meet one day and resolve the issues they got. Till then you can see more pictures found by people at 9to5mac of Steve Jobs Biological Father.
