Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was posthumously inducted into the Bay Area Business Hall of Fame last week.

Apple Senior Vice President Eddy Cue tweeted a video tribute to Jobs and his speech accepting the award in his former leader's honor. Cue said in his tweet that the acceptance was "an honor, a privilege."

"Steve Jobs is no longer with us, but his influence as the co-founder and visionary force behind one of the world's most iconic companies and brands places him among the greatest business leaders and most brilliant thinkers of all time," Bay Area Council President and CEO Jim Wunderman said last week.

In his speech, Cue commemorated his former boss, saying that "even in my darkest days, he was there for me." Cue credited Jobs with helping him and his wife get through her cancer diagnosis, saying that "in many ways, she's here tonight because of him, so thank you, Steve."

Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison also was inducted to the hall of fame last week.
