Apple co-founder and driving force Steve Jobs passed away on October 5th 2011, and nearly three years on to the day the current CEO, Tim Cook, has remembered the man who made much of Apple's success possible. Jobs named Cook as his successor before his untimely death at the age of 56 and Cook has issued an email in remembrance of the man credited as the driving force behind Apple's "i" revolution.

The memo was sent to all Apple employees and pays tribute to Jobs, praises his legacy, and thanks the employees of the company for continuing his vision.


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.


Last year Cook remembered the second anniversay of Jobs' death with the following email:

Tomorrow marks the second anniversary of Steve's death. I hope everyone will reflect on what he meant to all of us and to the world. Steve was an amazing human being and left the world a better place. I think of him often and find enormous strength in memories of his friendship, vision and leadership. He left behind a company that only he could have built and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple. We will continue to honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to the work he loved so much. There is no higher tribute to his memory. I know that he would be proud of all of you.
