Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has passed away today at the age of 56-years-old.
TMZ has the scoop:
Jobs suffered a number of serious health issues over the years. In 2004, he announced he had a rare — but treatable — form of pancreatic cancer … and had a tumor successfully removed from his pancreas later that year.
TMZ posted a picture of Jobs two days after he resigned as Apple’s CEO in August, clearly showing a deterioration in his health.
In 2009, Jobs received a liver transplant after announcing his “health-related issues were more complex than I thought.”
