Tomorrow marks the third anniversary of Steve Job’s death. In a note obtained by iClarified, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook has sent employees an email on the occasion to honor Jobs, and remember him.
Steve Jobs passed away on October 5th, 2011, at the age of 56 after a long fight with the pancreatic cancer. Since then, he’s been remembered every year, and tributes have been paid to the visionary.
People have remembered Steve Jobs in a number of ways since his passing. Books and biographies have been written on the life of the ex-CEO, and even a movie to show about his life at Apple.
Here’s the complete email:
Sunday will mark the third anniversary of Steve’s passing. I’m sure that many of you will be thinking of him on that day, as I know I will.
I hope you’ll take a moment to appreciate the many ways Steve made our world better. Children learn in new ways thanks to the products he dreamed up. The most creative people on earth use them to compose symphonies and pop songs, and write everything from novels to poetry to text messages. Steve’s life’s work produced the canvas on which artists now create masterpieces.
Steve’s vision extended far beyond the years he was alive, and the values on which he built Apple will always be with us. Many of the ideas and projects we’re working on today got started after he died, but his influence on them — and on all of us — is unmistakeable.
Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for helping carry Steve’s legacy into the future.
