Photos of a young Steve Jobs

Apple History, News

Pictured below is a young Steve Jobs at age 14, standing front row and center.  The photo was taken in 1969 and is of the Electronics Club at Homestead High School in Cupertino, California.  And as luck would have it, it’s the same high school fellow Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak graduated from one year earlier.  The two influential figures, though, wouldn’t eventually meet until 1970 when Woz was 19 and Jobs was 15.

Commenting on meeting Jobs for the first time, Woz noted in his autobiography, iWoz:

Typically, it was really hard for me to explain to people the kind of design stuff I worked on, but Steve got it right away. And I liked him. He was kind of skinny and wiry and full of energy…  Steve and I got close right away, even though he was still in high school… We talked electronics, we talked about music we liked, and we traded stories about pranks we’d pulled.

Pictured below is Steve Jobs’ senior high school portrait.  Approximately 7 years later, Jobs would already be a multi-millionaire.

And going back a short while earlier, below is another yearbook photo of Jobs.

And going even further back into the vault, here’s a photo of Steve Jobs at age 10.

    At 14, taking the lead.

    That Tucker Carlson bowtie says, “To live like a Republican, vote Democrat”. 😉

    That’s pretty damned impressive to be a millionaire at such a young age, and not even interested in playing sports. Yet Bill Gates did even better. Maybe it ain’t so bad to be a nerd if you can’t be an arrogant jock. Now, both can have all the cheerleaders they want.

    At age 10 Steve Jobs looks older than his highschool photo.
