Steve Jobs: Apple co-founder, tech visionary, business icon. Most of us only know the public side of Steve Jobs, but Lisen Stromberg knows Jobs as the neighbor who returns a wave and hello.
In a touching reflection, Stromberg shares her personal encounters with Jobs in the Palo Alto neighborhood they both call home. From a backyard pool party to sidewalk strolls, the glimpse at Steve Jobs, the man, offers a uniquely poignant perspective.
It was at Halloween not long after when I realized he actually knew my name (yes, my name!). He and his wife put on a darn scary haunted house (to be specific, a haunted garden). He was sitting on the walkway, dressed like Frankenstein. As I walked by with my son, Steve smiled and said, “Hi Lisen.” My son thought I was the coolest mom in town when he realized The Steve Jobs knew me.
Thanks for the coolness points, Steve.
