Apple’s Co-Founder, Former CEO Steve Jobs Dies

Apple's Tribute to Steve Jobs on Apple.com

A day after the news of the iPhone 4S release date, the former CEO of Apple Steve Jobs has passed away at the age of 56.

Steve announced in 2004 that he had a rare form pancreatic cancer. He even had a tumor successfully removed from his pancreas later that year.

In 2009, Steve received a liver transplant after announcing his “health-related issues were more complex than I thought.”

A statement on Apple’s website reads:

Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being,” the company said in a statement. “Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.

A statement from Apple’s Board of Directors reads:

We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today. Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve. His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts.

Steve is survived by his wife and four children.

Thank you Mr. Jobs for opening our eyes and improving technology!
