Apple founder Steve Jobs died the evening of October 5 at 56. He was like the Thomas Edison of the 21st century, creating electronic gadgets used by everyone around the world.
Jobs had been in the throngs of battling pancreatic cancer, and after undergoing numerous cancer treatments, passed away with his family and loved ones nearby.
He left behind Apple corporation, a family, and millions of loyal customers. All eyes now rest on Apple’s stock price, which has remained resilient in the news of his illness and recent death.
Jobs appointed current Apple CEO Tim Cook to lead the company, and stockholders look to him now for leadership.
