Tim Cook issues memoriam for Jobs

Apple CEO Tim Cook in the aftermath of the death of Steve Jobs issued a company-wide letter in eulogy. The executive had nothing but praise for Jobs, who brought him into the company roughly 13 years ago. A special memorial would take place in the near future and would take condolences from Apple staff.

Team,

I have some very sad news to share with all of you. Steve passed away earlier today.

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.

Tim
