Abdulfattah Jandali

Abdulfattah Jandali (born c. 1932) is a doctorate and a political science professor. He is a Syrian, settled in the United States.

Jandali and Joanne Carole Schieble are the biological parents of Steve Jobs, CEO and co-founder of Apple Inc.. They were graduate students at the University of Wisconsin in Madison in 1955, when they were both 23. They traveled to San Francisco, California to give birth, and they soon put up Jobs for adoption. Jandali and Carole are also the parents of the novelist Mona Simpson.

Hi Ashlyn, 
u were right somehow as Abdul Fataah is a traditional Arabic names. Usually, this name is used among Muslims. I have met Jobes' biological dad... All the ways, uncle Abdul Fatah is at his 80s and in good physiological and mental health...

To poster # 5, 
 
Abdulfattah Jandali was a Syrian Christian (Syriac) who came to the United States on a student visa. He is the biological father of Steve Jobs, which would make him half Syrian Christian or Arab Christian American. However, according to Wikipedia, Steve Jobs is a practicing Buddhist convert. Therefore, it would be more appropriate to consider Steve's religious views as Buddhist. 
 
Hope that helped resolve your query !

This is what genes fallen on good pastures can do. It is no miracle. Jandal is an Arabic root meaning a good size rock. "Jandalÿ" means a strong man; it also means someone whose ancestry goes back to "dwmat åljandal" which is the name of a rocky battlefield in Arabia and was mentioned in Arabic pre-islamic poetry.

I came across this article about his father who seems to truly love his children and wish he could have been more involved in their lives, especially after the mother took Mona away after the divorce - it seems Steve was given up for adoption as the mother's father was against the relationship, probably due to the race of the father. As such the father lost his family eventually and it left a bitterness

Calling biological parents of an adopted child "real parents" or even just "parents" is very offensive. The "real parents" are the parents who raised a child.

@ Hana Shaloub: 
 
He's not Abdulfattah was a Muslim, Jandali family is a well-know MUSLIM FAMILY FROM HIMS 'Syria' if you're Christian that don't mean that he's Christian! And I'm Christian by the way... 
 
Thanks

Sorry for the mistake in my previous comment 'He's not Abdaullfatah....' 
 
I wanted to say 'He's not Christian, Abdulfattah Jandali was a Muslim, and Bdaulfattah is a Muslim name,Jandali family is a well-know MUSLIM FAMILY FROM HIMS Syria' I know some Jandali friends, they're from Hims like the Attasi family and Droubi family, and all are Muslims... So he's not Syriac! This's irrational...

Guys, I am from Syria and I will have a good guess that Steve Jobs was the fruit of an UNWANTED casual relationship birth to Abdulfattah and his collegue at Uni Carole. 
He is probably if aware of his roots is now cursing his father, looking at Steve personality and speeches he is full of rage and maybe complexes ? 
Anyway, the point is STOP pleading someone who never even mentioned his father's homeland even as a curse ! 
Hope I have not offended anyone

Why this obsession with the man's religion? 
Surely in the 21st century mankind is beyond this need to believe in some religious mythology? 
 
And by the way Buddhism is not a religion.

Connaeetre ses propres oerignis est l'un des fondements qui construit l'identite9 personnelle. Cet aspect de notre identite9, qui est fae7onne9 par une histoire singulie8re, par tout un he9ritage culturel et par des valeurs transmises entre les ge9ne9rations, constitue un lien, un ciment, entre les hommes et les femmes qui les partagent. De8s lors, voir uniquement un motif de fierte9 ou d'orgueil e0 la de9couverte de tel ou tel autre personnage marquant de notre civilisation (sentiment naturel que tout chauviniste revendique), est tre8s re9ducteur, il s'agit d'avantage d'une queate personnelle (le plus souvent) et parfois collective (pour les peuples en diaspora notamment), qui n'a d'autre objet que celui de l'identification identitaire , en clair, le besoin naturel de s'identifier aux personnes qui portent une identite9 proche ou semblable e0 celle qu'on appartient.En deux mots, savoir que M. Steve Jobs a pu recevoir une e9ducation teinte9e de culture et des valeurs morales arme9niennes, n'est pas seulement un motif de fierte9, au dele0, c'est un formidable incitateur identitaire pour tous ceux qui sont en queate de la leur, et les arme9niens issus de la diaspora savent e0 quel point ce travail est long et difficile, surtout pour les dernie8res ge9ne9rations.Tout ce qui peut participer e0 concre9tiser cette recherche identitaire personnelle, est e9minemment important, qu'il s'agisse d'une personne, d'un e9ve9nement, d'une de9couverte, d'une entreprise, d'une re9ussite, etc.C'est lorsque nous savons qui nous sommes que nous pouvons eatre celui ou celle que nous voulons !Fredo
