Childhood & Early Life

Lisa Brennan-Jobs was born with the name Lisa Nicole Brennan on May 17, 1978 in Portland, Oregon. Her father, Steve Jobs, and mother, Chrisann Brennan met in high school and had an on-off link up for the next five years. In 1977, after Steve Jobs co-founded Apple, he moved into a house with Chrisann and one of his friends and co-worker, Daniel Kottke. Soon Chrisann became pregnant but Jobs denied that he was the father. In 1978, Chrisann gave birth to their daughter on All One Farm Commune in the absence of Steve Jobs. Three days after the child’s delivery, he showed up and the couple decided to name their child ‘Lisa’. However, Jobs still denied paternity and this made Chrisann end their relationship. She decided to raise Lisa all by herself by cleaning houses. She also took the case to court and Steve Jobs was made to pay $385 per month to Chrisann as a part of a legal settlement. After he became a millionaire, he increased the pay to $500 per month. Years later, Steve Jobs attempted to reconcile with his daughter. He apologized to Chrisann several times and when Lisa was nine years old, the father–daughter duo reconciled. It was after this reconciliation that Lisa decided to change her name from Lisa Nicole Brennan to Lisa Brennan-Jobs. Coming to Lisa’s education, she attended the Nueva School while living with her mother. Later on, after moving in with her father, she studied at Palo Alto High School. In 1996, she joined the Harvard University for graduation. She also studied overseas at King’s College London for one year.
