Steve Jobs’s Health: A Chronology

Steve Jobs has announced that he will take a fresh medical leave from Apple, Inc.  He didn’t offer details. 

Steve Jobs also took medical leave in 2009, when he had a liver transplant. Here’s a helpful chronology of his health problems from the LA Times.

This was his note to employees today:


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.
