Steve Jobs: One Year Later

To this day, Apple has kept up the Remembering Steve Jobs page on its website, as consumers from around the world posted thoughts, feelings, and sentiment as the world out-poured with emotion.

CEOs step down for health reasons every year, and some of them unfortunately succumb to their illnesses, but Jobs' death caused dignitaries from around the globe, including President Obama, to make comments.

Rival companies such as Google (GOOG) (Larry Page) and Microsoft (MSFT - Get Report) (Bill Gates) put out condolences. Disney (DIS - Get Report) CEO Bob Iger was a close friend and business partner, and said, "His legacy will extend far beyond the products he created or the businesses he built. It will be the millions of people he inspired, the lives he changed, and the culture he defined."

Jobs, who had a scare with pancreatic cancer in 2004, made very candid remarks about death, when speaking at Stanford University in 2005. "Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life."

I've included some thoughts from Twitter reflecting the sentiment surrounding the anniversary, and the profound impact Steve Jobs had on the world.
