If you’re reading this post in disbelief, you are sadly not mistaken. Apple Co-founder Steve jobs has passed away at age 56. As a pioneer and visionary for the company, Jobs’ creative genius left a dynamic impact on the world of technology. Jobs recently stepped down from the position of CEO at Apple and named Tim Cook as his successor.
Cook remembered Jobs in a company statement to the Apple Team
The new CEO, explained, “Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built and this spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.”
Jobs had been battling cancer for years. He is survived by his wife and 4 children. Jobs died peacefully today surrounded by his family.
As an avid user of Apple products for many of my creative endeavors–music production, beat making, creative writing, this is truly saddening news. Lets keep his family and friends in our prayers during their time of bereavement.
