There is NO doubt that his legacy will live on.

Yesterday, we were deeply saddened to report that Apple's former CEO/mastermind Steve Jobs lost the battle to pancreatic cancer at 56 years old.

Now, LOTS of people have opened up about Steve's passing, and we're pleased to see all the love and support.

Here's what President Barack Obama had to say about it:

"Michelle and I are saddened to learn of the passing of Steve Jobs. Steve was among the greatest of American innovators - brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it."

"By building one of the planet's most successful companies from his garage, he exemplified the spirit of American ingenuity. By making computers personal and putting the internet in our pockets, he made the information revolution not only accessible, but intuitive and fun. And by turning his talents to storytelling, he has brought joy to millions of children and grownups alike. Steve was fond of saying that he lived every day like it was his last. Because he did, he transformed our lives, redefined entire industries, and achieved one of the rarest feats in human history: he changed the way each of us sees the world."

"The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Steve's success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented. Michelle and I send our thoughts and prayers to Steve's wife Laurene, his family, and all those who loved him."

And here's what Bill Gates wrote about it on his website:

"I'm truly saddened to learn of Steve Jobs' death. Melinda and I extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends, and to everyone Steve has touched through his work. Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives."

"The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come. "

"For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it's been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely."

And here's a statement from Mark Zuckerberg:

"Steve, thank you for being a mentor and a friend. Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world. I will miss you."
