Tim Cook Reflects on Third Anniversary of Steve Jobs’ Death in Email to Employees


Apple CEO Tim Cook has sent an email to employees asking them to take some time to remember Steve Jobs ahead of the third anniversary of his passing.

Here is the full memo that Cook sent out to his employees:


Sunday will mark the third anniversary of Steve’s passing. I’m sure that many of you will be thinking of him on that day, as I know I will.

I hope you’ll take a moment to appreciate the many ways Steve made our world better. Children learn in new ways thanks to the products he dreamed up. The most creative people on earth use them to compose symphonies and pop songs, and write everything from novels to poetry to text messages. Steve’s life’s work produced the canvas on which artists now create masterpieces.

Steve’s vision extended far beyond the years he was alive, and the values on which he built Apple will always be with us. Many of the ideas and projects we’re working on today got started after he died, but his influence on them — and on all of us — is unmistakeable.

Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for helping carry Steve’s legacy into the future.


Tomorrow marks the three year anniversary of the passing of Steve Jobs. Even though it may be hard to believe that Steve passed away on October 5, 2011, the co-founder and former CEO of Apple has continued to have a major impact on the company.

In an interview with Charlie Rose, Tim Cook took the opportunity to emphasize Jobs’ influence on the company and on the development of new products. Cook said Steve’s office on the fourth floor has remained untouched since his death.

Can you believe that is has already been three years since Jobs passed away? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
