Former Apple CEO and co-founder, Steve Jobs has died. Jobs had been battling cancer and recently stepped down as the CEO of Apple, but had remained on the board of directors.

Steve Jobs was 56.

Jobs is survived by his wife of 20 years, Laurene, and four children, including one from a prior relationship.

He always spoke with immense pride about what he and his engineers accomplished at Apple.

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do,” he told the Stanford grads in 2005.
