Behind The Curtains
Erin was born on August 19, 1995, in California, US, to Steve Jobs and his wife Laurene Powell as their first daughter and the second child together. Her mother, Laurene, is an American businesswoman, executive and the founder of ‘Emerson Collective’ and co-founder and president of the ‘Board of College Track’ that readies unprivileged high school students for college. Erin’s elder brother, Reed, was born in September 1991, while her younger sister, Eve, was born in May 1998.
Her father got into a controversy when he denied paternity of Lisa Brennan-Jobs. Lisa was born to Chrisann Brennan with whom Steve Jobs had an on-off relationship for several years. Jobs denied paternity of Lisa for several years leading to a legal case. This controversy led to a DNA paternity test, which established him as Lisa's father. Jobs later reconciled and acknowledged Lisa as his daughter. As per Lisa’s wish, he legally changed her birth certificate, altering her name to Lisa Brennan-Jobs from Lisa Brennan.
Erin lost her father on October 5, 2011, due to respiratory failure which was medically related to relapse of a pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor, diagnosed and treated way back in 2003. Following Jobs death, Erin’s mother inherited the ‘Steven P. Jobs Trust.’ Forbes 2016 list ranked Erin’s family at 44th position among the billionaires across the globe. It also mentioned Erin’s mother, Laurene, as the wealthiest woman in the technology industry. However, with all the riches and opulence at their disposal, the Jobs children including Erin lead a modest life.
Erin is a very quiet person, some sort of an introvert, and prefers to maintain a private life. She had an emotionally distant relationship with her father, who also led a private life. She had no inkling of how to get close to the genius. Nevertheless, she picked up her father’s skills in architecture and design.
