Cook, Apple CEO extended heartfelt admiration. He released a personal memo through Apple’s team lead and staff. “Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor,” his words read. “Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.”
The greatest reaction possibly, offered in written statement, by the American President of the United States, Barack Obama.
