Co-founder, CEO and chairman of Apple.

Syrian-born biological father, Abdulfattah "John" Jandali and his biological mother was Swiss-American Joanne Carole Schieble.

Steve was adopted at birth by Paul Reinhold Jobs (1922–1993) and Clara Jobs (née Hagopian) (1924–1986), an Armenian American.

Steve said, "Paul and Clara are 100% my parents. And Joanna and Abdulfatah—are only a sperm and an egg bank. It's not rude, it is the truth." Given this statement, I have listed his adoptive parents as his father and mother on this profile. Which means that any of Steven's actual relatives will be unable to use this the Wikitree genealogical database to confirm or disprove a documented genealogical connection to Steven or to compare DNA results to make the same analysis thus rendering the purpose of this site null and void for this profile. This profile will be a brick wall for descendants of Steven Jobs who would like to research their genetic heritage.

I understand you want to honor his wishes and honor his adoptive parents. But, I'd like to see birth parents in links and list his adoptive parents in biography. Using adoptive parents in links makes all of the ancestors shown worthless. You also do not include his genetic sister. I think there is a way you can show both nicely. Thanks.
