It’s crazy to think that it’s now been two full years to the day since Apple founder and former CEO Steve Jobs passed away, following a lengthy battle with pancreatic cancer.
On the eve of the anniversary, current CEO Tim Cook fired out an email to Apple staff, urging them to reflect on what Steve Jobs meant, and suggesting that the best way to honour his memory is to continue his hard work.
One year ago, Apple posted a public tribute on its official site, though there doesn’t appear to be anything similar this year – certainly not at the time of writing.
In the meantime, 9to5mac has intercepted the aforementioned email from Tim Cook. Behold:
“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.”
