Tim Cook announced the passing of Steve Jobs a few hours ago. The world has lost a great visionary, creative genius, and the greatest man that changed everyone’s lives. Say what you will about Steve Jobs, but you can’t deny the fact that Steve Jobs has “touched” your life, in more ways than ever. My deepest condolences to his immediate family and friends of Steve Jobs. May you, Steven Paul Jobs, rest in peace.
I have some very sad news to share with all of you. Steve passed away earlier today.
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.
We are planning a celebration of Steve’s extraordinary life for Apple employees that will take place soon. If you would like to share your thoughts, memories and condolences in the interim, you can simply email email@example.com.
No words can adequately express our sadness at Steve’s death or our gratitude for the opportunity to work with him. We will honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he loved so much.
