Steve Jobs officially resigned from the helm of Apple Inc. He co-founded the company from a garage, and went on to reign as CEO for fourteen years. Jobs accomplishments will always be seen in light of his own individual breakthroughs as a true technology pioneer, but his work keeping the Apple organization at the very forefront of dynamic research and development can never be minimized. His competitive genius and product presentation savvy will forever place him in the highest echelons of iconic American business giants like Andrew Carnegie, Richard Sears and William Randolph Hearst.

Jobs strength and tenacity shines in his survival of pancreatic cancer, another storm like many others he weathered like a true champion. He still suffers from an undisclosed medical condition, so please keep he and his loved ones in your thoughts and prayers.
