Early life and Education
Laurene Powell was born on November 6, 1963, in West Milford, New Jersey. Powell graduated with a B.A. in political science and a B.S. in economics from the University of Pennsylvania School of Arts and Sciences in 1985. Powell graduated from Stanford Graduate School of Business with a Master of Business Administration degree in 1991.
The co-founder and board president of the national education nonprofit Organization College Track, which helps send impoverished students to college, Powell Jobs is associated with Steve Jobs. Still, she is also the co-founder and board president of College Track. Before joining Apple, Powell Jobs co-founded Terravera, an organic and healthful food firm. She also spent three years at Goldman Sachs and Merrill Lynch Asset Management before attending business school.
At Directions of Achieva, Powell Jobs served on the board of directors. In October of last year, Powell Jobs bought an interest in Monumental Sports and Entertainment, which owns the NBA’s Washington Wizards, the NHL’s Washington Capitals, and the Capital One Arena. The organization also owns the Capital One Arena. Having a 20 percent stake, she is now the second-largest stakeholder behind chairman Ted Leonsis.
In addition, Laurene inherited Steve’s entire Apple and Disney holdings. SEC filings show that she sold approximately half of her Disney interest in 2017 for $7 billion. She now owns about 4% of Disney’s outstanding stock. Now that she’s below the 5 percent threshold, Disney doesn’t have to publish her transactions publicly anymore. If she still owns the remaining 74 million shares, they are worth $13 billion as of this writing. The financial dividends she receives from Disney amount to approximately $120 million per year (officially, $60 million semi-annually).
Laurene received 5.5 million Apple shares when Steve died. A 7-1 stock split in 2014 increased that stake to 38.5 million. Stock split 4-1 in August 2020, resulting in 154 million shares of the company’s stock in circulation. About 154 million shares are valued at about $20 billion at the time of this writing. Around $160 million is paid out in dividends annually from these shares (technically, $40 million every quarter). Laurene has amassed well over $1 billion in dividends over the years.
Founded in 2004, the Emerson Collective is an organization that helps social entrepreneurs and groups working in Education, immigration reform, social justice, media, and journalism through partnerships, investments, or grants. Powell Jobs controls The Atlantic and Axios through this collective. During the 2016 presidential race, Powell Jobs donated $2 million to Hillary Clinton’s campaign and raised an additional $4 million.
An acronym, a political organization, founded by her in 2017, raised ethical problems about Powell Jobs’ development of Courier Newsroom. Powell Jobs donated to some Democratic candidates in the 2020 U.S. presidential elections. Powell Jobs donated nearly $600,000 to the Biden-Harris campaign when Joe Biden became the Democratic presidential nominee.
Unlike her late husband, who was notoriously uninterested in charity endeavors, she is best recognized for her philanthropy. The Stanford Schools Corporation, Teach for America, the Global Fund for Women, KQED (PBS), EdVoice, the New America Foundation, and the Stanford Schools Corporation have her boards of directors.
The East Palo Alto nonprofit College Track was created in 1997 by Powell Jobs and Carlos Watson to improve graduation rates, college enrollment, and college graduation rates among “underserved” kids. Ninety percent of College Track graduates go on to four-year colleges.
The Emerson Collective has provided funding for the project’s development. Powell Jobs heads XC’s board of directors. Additionally, Powell Jobs is a founder member of the Climate Leadership Council.
Laurene Powell’s Husband
When Laurence was a new MBA student at Stanford Business School in 1989, Steve Jobs gave a “View from the Top” presentation at Stanford Business School in October. As the lecturer began, she snuck up on him and started discussing him in the front of the room.
A year and a half later, they went out to supper together. A Zen Buddhist monk, Kobun Chino Otogawa, officiated their wedding on March 18, 1991, at the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite National Park. Reed, their son, was born in September 1991, and Erin and Eve, their girls, were born in 1995 and 1998, respectively. Laurie has a daughter with Steve from a previous relationship, Lisa Brennan-Jobs (b. 1978).
