Laurene Powell Jobs

This is so far the most touching and heart-felt photo I’ve seen of Steve Jobs. He is with his wife, Laurene Powell Jobs. Here you can see and feel Steve Jobs not being the Apple CEO but as an ordinary person and a husband. What breaks my heart and makes me teary-eyed is that his leaning and facial expression showed that he’s tired, or in pain and/or weak :( But I know he’s glad that his loving wife is there for him.

The pain and the battle has ended, Sir. It’s time for you to rest. 

Steve Jobs and Laurene Powell met in a classroom at Stanford University in 1990, where he was lecturing and she was finishing an MBA. They exchanged phone numbers, but didn’t make plans. Later, in the parking lot, he had a revelation. He was on his way to meet colleagues—even had his key in the car—but, as Jobs told a New York Times reporter, “I thought to myself, if this is my last day on earth, would I rather spend it at a business meeting or with this woman?” He ran across the parking lot and asked her to dinner. They were married a year later, in Yosemite National Park, with a Zen Buddhist monk presiding.

Laurene Powell Jobs is speaking publicly for the first time since her husband Steve Jobs’ death to advocate for immigration reform.

“I started getting more and more active around immigration reform because this was such a waste of lives, such a waste of potential, such a waste for our country not to have the human capital that we developed – geared towards improving our entire society,” said Powell Jobs in an exclusive interview with Rock Center Anchor Brian Williams airing Friday, April 12 at 10pm/9CDT on NBC.
