She attended several schools in Hamburg (1953–1966), worked as a woman editor, and is married with 2 children.[1]

Since 1981, Schnieber-Jastram is member of the German Christian Democratic Union (CDU). From 1986 to 1994 she was member of the Hamburg Parliament, from 1994 to 2001 member of the Bundestag, including serving as a parliamentary executive of the CDU faction (2000–2001) and in this position member of the council of elders. From October 2001 to May 2008, she was State Minister for Social and Family Affairs of Hamburg.[1] She was succeeded by Dietrich Wersich. In her position as Senator, she was Second Mayor of Hamburg, from March 2004—after the election of 2004—until May 2008.[2]

In 2009 Schnieber-Jastram was elected to the European Parliament.[3] After her election, Schnieber-Jastram was criticised, among others by the newspaper Der Spiegel, to collect a pension for her job as Hamburg Senator (€5,500) and receiving monthly €7,665 for her election as MEP.[4] The Hamburg Government stated to change its law, to prevent double income.[5]
