Tim Cook: "We've lost an amazing human being"

Ben Parfitt
Tim Cook:

The man who succeeded Steve Jobs as the CEO of Apple, Tim Cook, has heaped praise on his former boss in an internal memo to employees.

“I have some very sad news to share with all of you. Steve passed away earlier today,” the note, published by Cnet, reads.

“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.

“We are planning a celebration of Steve's extraordinary life for Apple employees that will take place soon. If you would like to share your thoughts, memories and condolences in the interim, you can simply email rememberingsteve@apple.com.

“No words can adequately express our sadness at Steve's death or our gratitude for the opportunity to work with him. We will honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he loved so much.”

Apple’s website currently displays a large picture of the Jobs, and when clicked through offers the following message:

“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.”
