Apple co-founder Steve Jobs passed away at age 56, after a long battle with cancer.

The mastermind behind the iPhone, the iPod and the iMac had been suffering from pancreatic cancer for several years.

The man who took Apple Computers from a start-up company in his parents’ garage to a multi-billion dollar lifestyle tech brand (with some bumps along the way) will be remembered for his contributions to the global culture, connecting people through technology, and most of all, inspiring.

“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.
