For Jobs’s Biological Father, the Reunion Never Came
Periodically in the past year, Abdulfattah “John” Jandali would shoot off an email to Steve Jobs, the son he never met. They were simple notes: “Happy Birthday” or “I hope your health is improving.”
It’s unclear if Mr. Jobs ever wrote back. A person close to Mr. Jobs’s family said, no, he didn’t, while Mr. Jandali said he did receive two short replies.
The last one arrived six weeks before Mr. Jobs’s death, Mr. Jandali said, and said simply, “Thank you.”
