Today marks the 12th anniversary of Apple’s co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs passing away at the age of 56, following a cancer diagnosis.
Apple shared the following message on its website when Jobs passed away:
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 have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.
Apple still has a “Remembering Steve” page on its website with condolences shared by customers around the world following his death in 2011.
“There is not a day that goes by that we don’t think about him,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook, during the first media event at Steve Jobs Theater in September 2017.
The Steve Jobs Archive website contains a collection of quotes, videos, and emails from Jobs, and offers fellowships to young creators to follow in Jobs’ footsteps.Tag: Steve Jobs
