Steve Jobs, Founder and Visionary of Apple, Has Passed Away
This is a sad day. Former CEO and co-founder of Apple, Steve Jobs, has passed away at age 56.
In August, Steve stepped down from his CEO position at Apple. “I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.”
Steve has had a history of health and liver issues.
Confirming the loss, Apple has posted the following message:
Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. 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 build, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.
It is undoubtedly true that Steve Jobs has completely revolutionized a multitude of industries, changing the world in the process. If it was not for Steve Jobs, then we would not have modern technology. He has influenced more than just technology during his 35 years in the industry. His visions and achievements have affected almost every single person in existence today and will continue to do so. Steve’s passing is an extremely sad and significant loss.
Rest in peace, Steve Jobs. Your legacy will carry on forever.
