"Steve was among the greatest
of American innovators -- braveenough to think differently, bold enough to believe he couldchange the world, and talented enough to do it,"
"Steve and I first met
nearly 30 years ago, and have beencolleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more thanhalf our lives. The world rarely sees someone who has had theprofound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt formany generations to come. For those of us lucky enough to get towork with him, its been an insanely great honor."
“We’ve lost a unique tech
pioneer and auteur who knew how to makeamazingly great products. Steve fought a long battle against toughodds in a very brave way. He kept doing amazing things in the face ofall that adversity. As someone who has had his own medical challenges,I couldn’t help but be encouraged by how he persevered.”
"Steve’s legacy will extend far
beyond the products he created or the businesses he built. It will be the millions of people he inspired, the lives he changed, and the culture he defined. Steve was such an original, with a thoroughly creative, imaginative mind that defined an era. Despite all he accomplished, it feels like he was just getting started."Bob Iger, Disney
“Steve was one of a
kind. For many of us working intechnology and entertainment, Steve was a new kind of herothat lead with big, bold moves and would not settle for lessthan perfection. He is the best role model for a leader thataspires to be great.” John Riccitiello, EA
