Visionary, Passionate, Focused, Brilliant, Ace marketer, Innovator, Resilient are some of the words used to describe Steve Jobs, who left us at 56. Simply put, he was a sheer genius who founded a company in a silicon valley garage and, after many ups and downs, transformed it into the most valuable tech company in the world. As Bill Gates said – “The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come.” His penchant for excellence and perfection created groundbreaking products and services, which also had an impact on the decisions made by his competitors. Rest In Peace Steve, you will be missed by everyone; friends, family, colleagues, and competitors.
“The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented.” – Barack Obama
“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me … Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.” – Steve Jobs
