After a long battle with pancreatic cancer, Steve Jobs, co-founder and former CEO of a leading tech company Apple, died Wednesday, October 5, 2011.

Apple announced the death of Steve Jobs in statement that: "Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. 

"Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor.

"Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple."

"Steve's brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve," further statement from the company.

In the Apple website, they invite people who would like to give their thoughts, memories and condolences by sending an email to rememberingsteve@apple.com.

CNN says Job’s death was unexpected. He fought cancer for many years, took medical leave by January and forced him to step down his position as the Apple Chief executive on August this year because he can no longer meet his obligations and responsibilities.

Jobs is survived by his wife of 20 years, Laurene, and four children, including one from a prior relationship.

He constantly spoke with immense pride about what he and his engineers accomplished at Apple.

During the 2005 Stanford graduation, Job had quoted these simple and inspiring words to the grads  "Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do," he told the Stanford grads in 2005.
