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.
