Jobs co-founded Apple in 1976 with his friend Steve Wozniak and soon after released the world’s first personal computer Apple II.

Steve was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2004 and underwent a liver transplant. In recent years, his health continued to fail and in August this year he stepped down as CEO of Apple.

At the time he said in a statement. “I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know,” Jobs wrote in his letter of resignation. “Unfortunately, that day has come.”

Apple.com has the statement “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.”
