The buzzing device in your pocket has likely alerted you to the fact that Apple co-founder and former CEO, Steve Jobs has passed away. The man responsible for changing the way the world communicates, innovates, and entertains succumbed to pancreatic cancer at the age of 56.
Having previously served as the chief executive of Pixar Animation Studios, Jobs helped to radically redefine what an animated film can be. Breathtaking visuals weren’t enough. There needed to be heart as well. This ethic lead to the creation of several memorable characters and unforgettable films. Films that have impacted children and adults alike.
Jobs will be sorely missed but will live on as a symbol of invention and ingenuity. Our condolences to those who loved him and those he loved. This is sadder than the first ten minutes of Up.
