Steve Jobs Takes Second Medical Leave
Monday, January 17, 2011
Posted by: Brian

Apple issued a media advisory this morning stating that Steve Jobs is in the process of taking his second medical leave from the company. According to the company, Steve sent out the following email to all Apple employees describing the situation:

At my request, the board of directors has granted me a medical leave of absence so I can focus on my health. I will continue as CEO and be involved in major strategic decisions for the company.

I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for all of Appleā€™s day-to-day operations. I have great confidence that Tim and the rest of the executive management team will do a terrific job executing the exciting plans we have in place for 2011.

I love Apple so much and hope to be back as soon as I can. In the meantime, my family and I would deeply appreciate respect for our privacy.

Steve


On behalf of the 123Macmini community, I would like to wish Steve a speedy recovery and best wishes to him and his family.

It's a good thing he only gets a $1/yr. salary. This guy sure books off sick a lot. Wink I'm joking of course Smile

I'm glad Steve is setting his health as a priority over running the business. It's quite apparent that he rushed back to his position before a full recovery.

Hopefully he takes enough time off, to fully recover this time. There hasn't been any news of further complications, has there?

I hope Steve makes a swift recovery. It's a good sign that he remains the CEO, which hopefully means that he just needs some rest time.

He has/had pancreatic cancer?


http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE70G4DC20110117


he had a liver transplant and it is failing? both?

he is sick and while lots of money has helped him stay alive he will be gone in 2011?


I hope that whatever is wrong he gets better.

Even though I am annoyed at his 2010 macmini remake he has done a lot of good things for people computers and apple.

I never read about his kids, I know he has a daughter, Lisa? has he been married just once?
wish him the best. You know he loves his work and will miss being there big time.

He remains CEO, all he is doing is handing over daily operations to Cook.

NRecob, according to that article Apple's stock has plummeted, but a simple check shows that is just BS. The rest is conjecture. Conjecture and BS are the sign of quality journalism.

I wish him the best for his recovery.

Yeah, Lisa was in that movie the pirates of silicon valley. I think he has some other kids from another marriage though.
