Abdulfattah John Jandali, Abdulfattah John Jandali never met the son he gave up for adoption approximately 50 years ago, but he knew a man called Steve Jobs was a great innovator. Back in 1955, Syrian-born Jandali, now a casino executive in Reno, Nev., fathered a baby boy with Joanne Carole Schieble. They were a young unwed couple in San Francisco, Calif., so they gave the baby up for adoption to Paul and Clara Jobs of Mountain View, Calif.

The baby grew up to be known worldwide as Steve Jobs, a co-founder of Apple Inc.

But Jandali, who was also a political science professor, never met his son. Jobs died on Wednesday at the age of 56.

In fact, the New York Post reported that Jandali didn’t know until just a few years ago that his son was the Apple CEO. Jandali e-mailed Jobs a few times, but couldn’t muster up the nerve to call, according reports, as he didn’t want Jobs to think he was after his riches.
