Michelle and I are saddened to learn of the passing of Steve Jobs. Steve was among the greatest of American innovators - brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it.
Steve lived the California Dream every day of his life and he changed the world and inspired all of us.
I’m truly saddened to learn of Steve Jobs’ death. Melinda and I extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends, and to everyone Steve has touched through his work.
I am very, very sad to hear the news about Steve. He was a great man with incredible achievements and amazing brilliance. He always seemed to be able to say in very few words what you actually should have been thinking before you thought it. His focus on the user experience above all else has always been an inspiration to me. He was very kind to reach out to me as I became CEO of Google and spend time offering his advice and knowledge even though he was not at all well. My thoughts and Google's are with his family and the whole Apple family.
Steve, thank you for being a mentor and a friend. Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world. I will miss you.
Today is an incredibly sad day for me, and indeed for anyone who considers themselves a technologist or entrepreneur. It is also a sad day for anyone who believes in the value of creativity and the importance of innovation, and for the millions of people who were touched by the creative genius evidenced in the many products and companies created by Steve Jobs throughout his remarkable career. Steve Jobs was the most important technology leader of our era?perhaps even the most important business leader of our era. He was also a unique figure in the world of business and technology, a man who demonstrated?more so than any other?that pure force of will, energy, and creative drive can change the world for the better.
I want to express my deepest condolences at the passing of Steve Jobs, one of the founders of our industry and a true visionary. My heart goes out to his family, everyone at Apple and everyone who has been touched by his work.
Once in a rare while, somebody comes along who doesnt just raise the bar, they create an entirely new standard of measurement.
The world lost a true visionary and great man today. Steve Jobs did more than simply shape our concepts of technology and invention, he helped define our understanding of how great innovation and design can bring people closer together. I, and everyone at Cisco, am deeply saddened by Steve’s loss. Our deepest sympathies go out to his colleagues and family. We’ll miss you, Steve, but your legacy will continue forever.”
My life is much better because of what Steve Jobs envisioned and accomplished. Thank you.
Steve Jobs was the greatest leader our industry has ever known. We are all blessed by his life. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Missing Steve Terribly.
I am deeply sorry to hear of Steve Jobs passing today.
Steve was the greatest leader our industry has ever know.
He led our industry relentlessly for over three decades.
I was fortunate to be given my first job by Apple in May 1984, I was 19.
Steve has since given me incredible personal support, always cared for my problems, and salesforce has directly benefited by a myriad of his ideas.
There would not be a salesforce.com without Steve Jobs.
My thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.
The world lost a true visionary today. Steve’s passion for simplicity and elegance leaves us all a legacy that will endure for generations. Today, my thoughts, and those of everyone at Nokia are with the friends and family that he leaves behind.
