Tim Cook reflects on second anniversary of Steve Jobs’ death


Apple CEO Tim Cook used the eve of second anniversary of Steve Jobs’ death to write an email to all Apple employees, reflecting on the moment.

Cook told employees that Steve would be “proud of all of you” and everyone should honour Jobs’ memory by “dedicating ourselves to the work he loved so much.” Here’s the full copy of the letter obtained by 9to5mac.


Tomorrow marks the second anniversary of Steve’s death. I hope everyone will reflect on what he meant to all of us and to the world. Steve was an amazing human being and left the world a better place.I think of him often and find enormous strength in memories of his friendship, vision and leadership. He left behind a company that only he could have built and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple. We will continue to honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to the work he loved so much. There is no higher tribute to his memory. I know that he would be proud of all of you.

Best, Tim

In 2012, Apple remembered Steve Jobs with a video tribute and a message from Cook on its homepage.

On Saturday, two years to the day that Steve Jobs passed away, Cook took to Twitter to share thoughts more personal in nature, saying he would be using the day to reflect back on his friendship with Steve and the “dents” Jobs made in the universe.

Tim Cook say.

Second anniversary of Steve’s death. Going on a long hike today and reflecting on his friendship and all the dents he made in the universe.

The remark is an obvious reference to one of Steve Jobs’ iconic quotes, who once said, “We’re here to put a dent in the universe. Otherwise why else even be here?”
