Biography

Djam Khoshbin was born in Tehran, Iran in 1935, as the youngest of three children, to Ghodsieh and Yusef Khoshbin, a devout Baha’i family. He grew up in Iran with his sister Pari and brother Manucher, and immigrated to the US in 1956, landing in Michigan at Hillsdale College, one of a handful of foreign students at that time. He then went to University of Arizona to receive his Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering. He then attended the University of Pennsylvania, working towards his PhD, but perhaps of more importance, Philadelphia is where he met Norma, his wife and the love of his life. The two married in 1973, and eventually moved the family, which included Noah and Jennifer, their children, from Pennsylvania to Tennessee and Illinois during his 25-year career at Mobil. Amy joined the family, and soon after that Noah and Jen were off to college. The family moved then to Houston, where Djam was the lead supervising manager at a Mobil plant in Pasadena, Texas. Throughout his long career, he was well-respected not only for his innovative mind and his work ethics, but also for his empathy towards his coworkers. Eventually, the Khoshbin kids moved to NYC and San Antonio, followed by Djam and Norma who retired in San Antonio to be near their family and grandchildren. Throughout his life, Djam dedicated himself to serving the cause of God with the kindness, devotion, and generosity inherent in him from childhood. He led a full, vibrant life. He is dearly loved and greatly missed by all who came in contact with him. Djam is survived by his beloved wife Norma, and their children Noah, Jennifer and Amy.
