APPLE has announced that Steve Jobs, at age 56 has died. In 2004, a cancerous tumor in Jobs’ pancreas was successfully removed. After his operation he continued to struggle with his health and revelaed that his disease was more complicated than he thought. In 2009, he received a successful liver transplant but it would only buy him so much time. After years of failing health, the former Apple CEO left his position on August 24th, 2011. As he left, Jobs stated.
“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.”
Apple has released the following statement:
“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.”
