Steve Jobs Cause Of Death
October 31, 2011 by staff
Jobs died Thursday, 56. Apple did not disclose the cause of his death, but Jobs had been in poor health for years.
He battled pancreatic cancer in 2004 and had a liver transplant in 2009 after taking a leave of absence for unspecified health problems.
It took another license in January – the third since his health problems began – and resigned in August, giving the executive work hand-picked his successor, Tim Cook.
The death certificate, issued by the Santa Clara County Public Health Department, said Jobs had a metastatic pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor in the last five years. It listed the immediate cause of death as respiratory failure.
He died at his home in Palo Alto. No autopsy was performed and was buried on Saturday. Details of the certificate previously reported by Bloomberg News.
The certificate listed the occupation of Jobs as a high-tech entrepreneur. Jobs started Apple in his parents’ Silicon Valley, with garage friend Steve Wozniak in 1976. Both men left Apple in 1985, Jobs after a confrontation with then-CEO John Sculley.
Jobs returned in 1997 as interim CEO after Apple, then in a desperate financial situation, bought NeXT, a computer company he started. That was the beginning of the remarkable transformation of Apple, which continues today with the popularity of products like the iPhone, iPod and iPad.
Apple employees will hold a memorial service to celebrate the life of Jobs on Thursday of next week at the company’s campus in Cupertino, Calif., said an email sent by Cook. An Apple spokesman said the company would not be holding any public service.
