Steve Jobs taking another medical leave of absence from Apple


Posted by Andru Edwards - Categories: Apple, Corporate News


steve jobs leave of absenceAlmost two years to the day from when Steve Jobs took medical leave from Apple to get a liver transplant, he has announced that he will be taking leave yet again to deal with his health. Just like last time, Steve will remain as CEO of Apple, and will be very involved in the major strategic decisions for the company. Tim Cook will take over day-to-day operations. It's unknown at this time whether the issues are related to Steve's bout with pancreatic cancer back in 2004, or the 2009 liver transplant, but whatever it is, we wish him a speedy and full recovery. We've got the email he drafted to his team after the jump.


 

Team,
 
At my request, the board of directors has granted me a medical leave of absence so I can focus on my health. I will continue as CEO and be involved in major strategic decisions for the company.
 
I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for all of Apple's day to day operations. I have great confidence that Tim and the rest of the executive management team will do a terrific job executing the exciting plans we have in place for 2011.
 
I love Apple so much and hope to be back as soon as I can. In the meantime, my family and I would deeply appreciate respect for our privacy.
 
Steve
