As my dear friend put it, “Steve Jobs was the Thomas Edison of our generation.” This rings very true and I am sad to confirm that Steve Jobs has died.
The man behind Apple and iEVERYTHING lost his battle with pancreatic cancer. Jobs was diagnosed in 2004 and continued to crank out gadgets and technological advancements despite his condition. He stepped down as CEO earlier this year. The National Enquirer took that and ran with a story that Jobs only had 6 weeks to live. Despite the report, he continued to inspire and work until the very end. Click HERE to see his fantastic commencement speech at Stanford.
Apple confirmed the news Steve Job’s death and assured everyone that the company will continue with his spirit in mind…
“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.”
He will be greatly missed. Condolences to his loved ones.
