Techy Savvies are but in mourn at this very moment as the person behind one of the most successful inventions in the world of technology now rests in peace. Steve Jobs, Apple Inc’s co-founder who has been struggling against pancreatic cancer finally gave up the fight against it and has let go of the world.
Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me.… Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful—that’s what matters to me. -Steve Jobs
Jobs spent his entire life creating wonderful things for everyone to enjoy. Apple wouldn’t be Apple if not because of him and losing him would really make a big difference. “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 this spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple,” said the company in a statement.
In the past few months, Jobs seemed to have known that his life couldn’t hold on that long. He filed an indefinite leave last January and gave up his role as CEO last August 24 of this year because he knew that he isn’t capable of the job anymore. A man who truly knows his limits and because of what he did, there has been a smooth transition of office in the company that he truly loves.
His family released a statement saying, “Steve died peacefully surrounded by his family. We are grateful for the support and kindness of those who share our feelings for Steve. “We know many of you will mourn with us, and we ask that you respect our privacy during our time of grief”
To Steve Jobs, Your great work would always be remembered. Thank you for everything.
