On Oct. 5, 2011, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs died after battling pancreatic cancer.

Seven years later, on the anniversary of his death, current Apple CEO Tim Cook paid homage to Jobs by posting a tribute to him on Twitter.

It's hard to image what Apple would be if it were not for Steve Jobs, but in the seven years since his passing Apple has made tremendous steps. Just recently Apple became a trillion-dollar company, and it ranks among the most valuable companies in the world.
