Steve Jobs To Take A Break Till June

by Juan on January 15th, 2009

In what can only be taken as a surprising turn of events, Steve Jobs, Apple’s beloved CEO is taking a leave of absence until June to focus on his health. Quoting from an email that he sent out to Apple employees, Steve said:

I am sure all of you saw my letter last week sharing something very personal with the Apple community. Unfortunately, the curiosity over my personal health continues to be a distraction not only for me and my family, but everyone else at Apple as well. In addition, during the past week I have learned that my health-related issues are more complex than I originally thought.

Tim Cook, Apple’s COO will be taking the helm until Steve’s return. If he ever does return. There have been speculations that Apple might not see it’s captain.

This bit of news sent Apple stocks tumbling. As of this writing, Apple shares are down 4.7% and is trading at the $81 area.

My prayers go out to Steve and his family. I sincerely hope that this is not a recurrence of the big C. Having several people close to me suffer from cancer, I know it’s a terrible, terrible thing.

Whatever it is, my sincerest well wishes for a speedy recovery. See you in June Steve!
