Steve Jobs passed away at 56

Apple has lost its creator – iRIP.

The co-founder and former CEO of Apple passed away after battling pancreatic cancer since 2004.

Steve Jobs died Wednesday at the age of 56, Apple announced on October 5.

“Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being,” the executive committee of the company wrote in a statement. “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.”

In a separate statement, his family said, “Steve died peacefully today surrounded by his family. … In his public life, Steve was known as a visionary; in his private life, he cherished his family. We are thankful to the many people who have shared their wishes and prayers during the last year of Steve’s illness.”

Apple’s site pays tribute to its founder with a black and white photo, accompanied by the text “Steve Jobs, 1955-2011.”

In 2004, Jobs underwent surgery for pancreatic cancer and the tumor was removed. Two years later, his thin figure prompted rumors of a return of the disease. In January 2009, he was forced to take a second medical leave and six months later he underwent a successful liver transplant.

This year, on August 24, Jobs announced that his health forced him to resign as chief executive of Apple in an email to employees that was also made public.

Jobs said he could “no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO,” and the company immediately appointed Tim Cook in his position and made Steve Jobs ​​ Chairman of the Board of Directors.

Considered by many a genius, both in IT and sales, Steve Jobs has created a cult around himself and his brand.
