Steve Jobs Dies At 56

Steve Jobs, the former CEO of Apple, has passed away. He was 56.

“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,” the company said in a statement on its website.

Steve had resigned from his position back in August. He received a liver transplant for pancreatic cancer in 2009.

Steve is survived by his wife Laurene and his four children.

RIP Steve. You were a brilliant brilliant man.

So sad. He was truly a visionary. He changed the world. How many people can look back on their lives and say that?

RIP Steve, Apple wont be the same without you

Omg so sad. Rest in peace.

Wow, so sad. He will be missed. Sorry for his family. He was a visionary genius.

He was 2 years older then my dad when he passed away due to cancer.. My heart goes out to his family and friends. RIP to a true inspiration!

That is so sad. He did contribute a lot to technology and society and his legacy will ive on. If there’s an afterlife, Mr. Jobs, I hope you’re having a wonderful time there. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Although this was expected since Pancreatic cancer claims 95 percent of those that get it–still a horrible shock. Thank you Steve Jobs for everything!
