On October 5th, we heard the sad news that Steve Jobs passed away at the age of 56—only weeks after he resigned as Apple CEO. Apple fans around the world have mourned his death, and Jobs’ family issued a statement saying he “… died peacefully…surrounded by his family.” Within the same statement they expressed thanks for people’s support and kindness.
Now, Apple-co founder Steve Wozniak was interviewed by the Associated Press, were he shared his thoughts on Steve Jobs and the mark he left on the world through his vision and charisma.
During the interview, Wozniak discussed several stories of their childhood and recounted the moments when the two built the company in 1976 in Jobs’ parent’s garage. Wozniak took the time to recount the last moment when he saw Jobs about three months earlier, right after he recently emerged from a medical leave to unveil the company’s latest iOS mobile software and its iCloud content syncing service. Wozniak said Steve Jobs looked quite ill and sounded weak at the time. He said, “We’ve lost something we won’t get back” and “The way I see it, though, the way people love products he put so much into creating means he brought a lot of life to the world.” He also stated that Jobs was always a good husband and father and a great businessman who had an eye for details.
On Apple’s website, the company encourages those who wish to share their thoughts, memories, and condolences to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
