Laurene Powell Jobs net worth: Laurene Powell Jobs is an American billionaire who has a net worth of $19 billion. Laurene Powell Jobs is probably best known for being the widow of Apple founder Steve Jobs. But the reality is, the majority of her net worth actually doesn't come from the large stake in Apple she inherited from Steve. The majority of Laurene's fortune comes from the Disney stock she inherited. When Steve sold Pixar to Disney, he received 130 million shares of Disney. Today, Laurene owns 130,181,925 shares of Disney that are worth more than $13.15 billion. The remaining roughly $6 billion is mostly Apple stock but also at least $500 million in cash.

Outside of her association to Jobs, Powell is the co-founder and President of the Board of Directors at the national education nonprofit organization College Track, which works to send underprivileged youth to college. Powell previously co-founded Terravera, a food company that specialized in organic and healthy food products. And before going to business school, she also spent three years at the business firm Goldman Sachs. But it's her philanthropy that she's best known for, in stark contrast to her deceased husband, who was somewhat notoriously uninterested in charitable causes throughout his life. She is a member of the boards of directors of charitable and community organizations such as Teach for America, the Global Fund for Women, TV station KQED (PBS), EdVoice the New America Foundation and the Stanford Schools Corporation. Clearly, Laurene Powell Jobs is someone who isn't content to just sit on her wealth, instead using her blessings to give back to not just her community but various communities all over the planet.
