Steve Jobs was one of the most innovative entrepreneurs to ever live. As the co-founder and CEO of Apple, he had a major impact on so many people’s everyday lives. Apple was a major influence in the home computer movement, and the company revolutionized the smartphone with the iPhone in 2007. In the years since Steve’s passing at 56 after a battle with cancer, the company has continued to grow and release products that are used by so many people worldwide.
Throughout his life, was only married once to Laurene Powell, 58, who he wed in 1991, and had three kids with. The couple were together for 20 years until Steve’s death in 2011. Prior to marrying Laurene, he was in a long-term relationship with Chrisann Brennan in the 70s, and the pair had his first daughter together in 1978.

Steve and Chrisann were together from 1972 to 1977, but the pair’s daughter Lisa Brennan-Jobs, 44, was born in 1978. Despite being her dad’s first child, the pair had a bit of a strained relationship. She admitted that when she was a child the Apple founder had denied that she was his child, until he was sued for child support payments when she was a child, as she wrote in a 2018 essay for Vanity Fair. Despite the rocky start, Steve did name one of his first PCs the “Lisa Computer.” In the same piece, she admitted that she visited him many times while he was sick, and they’d gotten closer as she’d gotten older.
While her dad was a pioneer of the tech world, Lisa has become a writer. Her memoir Small Fry, detailing her relationship with her father, as well as what her life was like growing up, was released in 2018. She’s also written pieces for The L.A. Times, Vogue and more, according to her website. Aside from her writing, Lisa also has an interest in baking and cooking, showing off her culinary creations on her Instagram.
After Steve and Laurene got married in March 1991, they had their first son Reed, 30, in September 1991. Like his dad, Reed is clearly very smart, having graduated from Stanford University in 2014, and getting a master’s degree the following year, according to his LinkedIn. He’s currently working as the managing director for the Emerson Collective, which was founded by his mom.
The Emerson Collective is a company dedicated to philanthropic efforts, focusing on immigration, the environment, and education primarily. The organization is also very notably involved in cancer research. Laurene explained their efforts in a June 2014 letter. “If we’ve helped someone transcend the limits of circumstance and chart a new course for themselves and their families, we know we’re fulfilling our mission,” she wrote.
Erin Siena Jobs
After Reed was born in 1991, his little sister Erin Siena, 26, arrived in August 1995. Of all of Steve’s kids, Erin has been the most private. She’s not active on social media, and very little information is readily, but her younger sister Eve did share a childhood photo of Erin on her Instagram to celebrate her birthday in 2021. The photo showed the two girls on the side of a yacht. “To my lifelong best friend — happy birthday!! I love you I love you I love you,” Eve wrote in the caption.
Steve and Laurene’s youngest daughter Eve, 24, was born in July 1998. Out of all of Steve and Laurene’s kids, Eve has been the most public, being a model and horseback rider. She’s such a skilled equestrian, that she’s even been named Hall of Fame “Rider Of The Month” in March 2017 by the Show Jumping Hall Of Fame. She’s taken to her Instagram to show off her equestrian skills, but her main focus seems to be modeling.
Eve revealed that she signed with DNA Models in March 2022, and she regularly posts beautiful photos of her work to her social media. Eve has walked the runway at a number of fashion events, and she even made her Met Gala debut in May 2022. “Thank you so much to the incredible team behind this look,” she wrote on her Instagram after the memorable occasion.
