Apple CEO Tim Cook marks the third anniversary of Steve Jobs' death with email message to Apple employees
Sunday marks the third anniversary of the passing of Steve Jobs. Apple's co-founder was taken from us way too early, at the age of 56. Regardless of whether you liked him or hated him, the truth is that he touched everyone's lives for the better. Think about the all of the times that you saw a Pixar movie and smiled because your kids did. Steve Jobs of course, was one of the co-founders of Pixar.

Even if you currently rock an Android handset, you can thank Steve Jobs for the enjoyment that you get from the device everyday. After all, Android was not originally designed to support touchscreens until the Apple iPhone launched. And of course, the Apple iPad started a whole new category.

No, Steve Jobs was not perfect. He had faults, just like all of us have. But he did have drive and he did have vision. He and Steve Wozniak started a company in a garage, and it became the most valuable company in the world. That is quite a feat.

In advance of Sunday's anniversary, current Apple CEO Tim Cook sent out a message to Apple employees, which we have posted below. Perhaps the true value of a person is how much he is missed when he or she is gone. You don't have to be an Apple fan to acknowledge that there has been something missing on this planet since October 5th, 2011.
