Who is Abdulfattah Jandali?

Abdulfattah Jandali is a Syrian immigrant from the 1950s who settled in the United States. He is well recognized for being the biological father of Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple. Steve Jobs met his biological father on a handful of occasions while the latter was working as a manager at a restaurant in Sacramento, but Jobs was unaware that Jandali was his biological father. When Jobs was informed of his biological father, he had no desire to meet him. Jandali went on to have a great career in his own right, albeit not being as successful as his biological son. Jandali maintained a restaurant after working as an assistant professor at ‘Michigan University’ and ‘Nevada University,’ before becoming the Vice Chairman of the ‘Boomtown Casino Hotel’ in Nevada.

Early Life and Bio

Abdulfattah Jandali was born in Homs, Syria, on March 15, 1931. His mother was a stay-at-home mom and his father was a self-made millionaire. Jandali attended the ‘American University of Beirut’ after graduating from high school. He became an activist while in university and was even imprisoned for three days. In the mid-1950s, he relocated to New York from Beirut. He moved in with one of his relatives, Najm Eddin al-Rifai, the Syrian ambassador to the United States. He studied at ‘Columbia University’ before moving on to ‘Wisconsin University,’ where he earned a Ph.D. in Economics and Political Science.

While attending ‘Wisconsin University,’ he began dating Joanne Carol Schieble, a German-Swiss Catholic. Schieble’s parents, on the other hand, were unhappy with the relationship, and her father threatened to cease sending her to university if she continued to see Jandali. Despite her parents’ opposition, she continued her relationship with Jandali and became pregnant with his kid after spending the summer of 1954 with him in Syria. Schieble flew alone to San Francisco, where she gave birth to a newborn boy, fearful of her parents. She returned to her hometown after giving him up for adoption. Her son, who was later adopted by a San Francisco couple, would go on to become one of the co-founders of ‘Apple Inc.’


Abdulfattah Jandali had financial difficulties after completing his schooling in the United States, forcing him to return to Syria. He returned to his hometown with the hopes of landing a diplomatic position. After failing to find work as a diplomat, he became the director of an oil refinery in Homs. In 1962, he returned to the US and began working as an assistant professor at ‘Michigan University.’ After that, he worked as an assistant professor at ‘Nevada University’ before deciding to open his own restaurant. He subsequently went on to own a restaurant and became the Vice Chairman of Nevada’s ‘Boomtown Casino Hotel.’
