    Laurene Powell Jobs talked about her famous husband saying "We miss him every day."

    Laurene Powell Jobs has gone public to talk about the 2011 death of her husband, Apple cofounder Steve Jobs, for the first time.

    "We miss him every day," she said, noting that she and her family knew him as a husband and father, not as a iconoclastic and idiosyncratic creator and capitalist.

    Powell Jobs, who has since become a philanthropist with a special focus on educational opportunities, gave an interview to NBC that will air Friday night at 10 p.m. on Rock Center with Brian Williams.

    She gave the interview to promote her film "The Dream Is Now," which airs Sunday at 4 p.m. on MSNBC. She and filmmaker Davis Guggenheim are promoting the DREAM Act that's currently being debated in Congress.

    The DREAM Act would allow illegal immigrants brought to the country as children to achieve citizenship for graduating high school or serving in the military, the newspaper noted.

    Steve Jobs died in 2011 from pancreatic cancer.
