On February 24, 1955, the future of technology arrived with the birth of Steve Jobs.

Born in San Francisco, he was adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs of Mountain View, California. As Jobs grew up, he quickly became savvy in technology.

The majority of people in the United States have a cell phone and even more specifically some sort of iPhone or Apple product material. But what some people may not know, is that Jobs was one of the major influences behind everything Apple.

He began his journey as an American computer entrepreneur and inventor and rose through the ranks until he became the Apple Inc. chairman and chief executive, which gave him his well-known legacy as a technology genius.

Jobs was the CEO of Apple and in 2006, he also became a chief executive of Pixar Animation Studios. Jobs was also a member of the board of directors of The Walt Disney Company after being asked by Disney. Jobs was even credited in Toy Story as an executive producer.

After years as Apple’s CEO, Job’s resigned in the middle of September of 2011, at the age of 56, because he had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. On October 5, 2011, the day the newest iPhone came out, Job’s passed away in the comfort of his family.

“Steve Job’s life will be one that we will remember,” freshman Dominique Mazero said.
