Steve Jobs passed away Wednesday at the age of 56.

Widely acknowledged as one of Silicon Valley's greatest innovators, Jobs stepped down from the Apple CEO's role in August, although was continuing as chairman of the company's board.

Jobs had fought pancreatic cancer during the last few years, but remained a visible figurehead at Apple, despite medical leaves of absence.

"Steve's brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives," the statement continued. "The world is immeasurably better because of Steve."

"His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts."
