Steve Jobs. Remembered one year on by Apple

Steve Jobs 1955-2011


A year ago the world lost a famous busi­ness vision­ary and the dri­ving force behind Apple. Steve Jobs, CEO and co-founder of Apple, died of pan­cre­atic can­cer at the age of 56 on Octo­ber 5, 2011.


Tim Cook, the cur­rent CEO of Apple, gave this state­ment to mark the anniversary:


Steve’s pass­ing one year ago today was a sad and dif­fi­cult time for all of us. I hope that today every­one will reflect on his extra­or­di­nary life and the many ways he made the world a bet­ter place.

One of the great­est gifts Steve gave to the world is Apple. No com­pany has ever inspired such cre­ativ­ity or set such high stan­dards for itself. Our val­ues orig­i­nated from Steve and his spirit will for­ever be the foun­da­tion of Apple. We share the great priv­i­lege and respon­si­bil­ity of car­ry­ing his future legacy into the future.

I’m incred­i­bly proud of the work we are doing, deliv­er­ing prod­ucts that our cus­tomers love and dream­ing up new ones that will delight them down the road. It’s a won­der­ful trib­ute to Steve’s mem­ory and every­thing he stood for.


Apple posted this short trib­ute video, to hon­our Steve Jobs, on their website:
