Tim Cook Remembers Steve Jobs on Twitter: ‘There is no Reason Not to Follow Your Heart’

Steve Jobs, Apple’s late co-founder and chief executive, would have turned 62 today. Perhaps best known to the general public for his penchant for carefully choreographed product presentations and unique leadership style, Steve passed away on October 5, 2011—the day after the iPhone 4s unveiling—of respiratory arrest related to a rare form of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor he was diagnosed with in 2003.

 Tim Cook, CEO of Apple has recently tweeted a tweet to remember Steve Jobs saying that his words and ideals will “always inspire us.” He then added:
“There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

Jobs was born on February 24, 1955 in San Francisco, California and adopted at birth. His biological father was Abdulfattah “John” Jandali, born in 1931 into a Muslim household, who grew up in Homs, Syria.

Earlier this week, Apple honored Steve in a press release announcing its upcoming 175-acre ring-shaped office building, officially named Apple Park and envisioned by Jobs, will be opening doors to employees in April.

“Steve would have turned 62 this Friday, February 24. To honor his memory and his enduring influence on Apple and the world, the theater at Apple Park will be named the Steve Jobs Theater,” wrote Apple.

“Steve’s vision for Apple stretched far beyond his time with us. He intended Apple Park to be the home of innovation for generations to come,” Tim Cook is quoted as saying in the press release announcing Apple Park.

Steve Jobs passed away on October 5, 2011, following a lengthy battle with cancer. He was born on February 24, 1955.

Rest in peace,Steve..
