Jobs is a Silicon Valley businessman most famous for his work with the company Apple Inc.

Together with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Jobs helped make the idea of the personal computer popular in the late ’70s. In the early ’80s, still at Apple, Jobs was one of the first to see the commercial potential of using a mouse to use with the GUI. During this period, Apple had hired a number of other people to be president of the company.

In 1985 Apple’s Board of Directors got rid of Jobs from the company. Jobs then started NeXT, a computer platform development company which dealt with higher education and business markets. Apple’s 1997 buyout of NeXT brought Jobs back to the company he co-founded, where he worked as the CEO of Apple.

Jobs has had health problems for the last few years and almost died before he got a new liver. People were worried that if Jobs died, Apple would not be as good of a company anymore.
