Steve Jobs remembered by Tim Cook on fourth anniversary of Jobs’ death

Steve Jobs succumbed to cancer and died of respiratory arrest on this day four years ago. To commemorate the fourth anniversary of his tragic passing, current CEO Tim Cook, whom Jobs suggested as his successor to the Board of Directors, issued a company-wide email to employees.

Cook sent an internal email to Apple employees on the fourth anniversary of Jobs’ death, highlighting what he believes made Jobs such a powerful leader and human being. Cook wrote, “On that day, the world lost a visionary. We at Apple lost a leader, a mentor, and many of us lost a dear friend.” He would go on to add that he sees Jobs’ legacy every single day he goes to work, thanks to the team that “embodies his spirit of innovation.”
“What is his legacy? I see it all around us: An incredible team that embodies his spirit of innovation and creativity. The greatest products on earth, beloved by customers and empowering hundreds of millions of people around the world. Soaring achievements in technology and architecture. Experiences of surprise and delight. A company that only he could have built. A company with an intense determination to change the world for the better.”
Cook also tweeted about remembering Jobs, saying that he, and everyone at Apple, honors him by “continuing the work he loved so much.”

Recently, Cook joined Stephen Colbert for the Late Show, and part of the discussion came to Steve Jobs, and what Cook called “opportunistic” movies based on the co-founder of Apple. Soon after that, the writer of the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, starring Michael Fassbender and directed by Danny Boyle, Aaron Sorkin called out Cook for the comments, and even made some of his own about Apple’s business practices.

Steve Jobs has been receiving rave reviews ever since it first debuted at film festivals, with many noting how powerful the performances are, how sharp the writing is, and even the depiction of Jobs himself. It’s set to launch in limited release on Friday, October 9, but then rollout to a wider launch later in the month.
“Team,
Today marks four years since Steve passed away. On that day, the world lost a visionary. We at Apple lost a leader, a mentor, and many of us lost a dear friend.
Steve was a brilliant person, and his priorities were very simple. He loved his family above all, he loved Apple, and he loved the people with whom he worked so closely and achieved so much.
Each year since his passing, I have reminded everyone in the Apple community that we share the privilege and responsibility of continuing the work Steve loved so much.
What is his legacy? I see it all around us: An incredible team that embodies his spirit of innovation and creativity. The greatest products on earth, beloved by customers and empowering hundreds of millions of people around the world. Soaring achievements in technology and architecture. Experiences of surprise and delight. A company that only he could have built. A company with an intense determination to change the world for the better.
And, of course, the joy he brought his loved ones.
He told me several times in his final years that he hoped to live long enough to see some of the milestones in his children’s lives. I was in his office over the summer with Laurene and their youngest daughter. Messages and drawings from his kids to their father are still there on Steve’s whiteboard.
If you never knew Steve, you probably work with someone who did or who was here when he led Apple. Please stop one of us today and ask what he was really like. Several of us have posted our personal remembrances on AppleWeb, and I encourage you to read them.
Thank you for honoring Steve by continuing the work he started, and for remembering both who he was and what he stood for.
Tim”
