About Steve Jobs

In Memory of Steve Jobs

The late Steve Jobs may have been known for his signature black turtleneck, but it is for his green diet that he probably will be most fondly remembered by peoplewho care about animals. The Apple cofounder, who died yesterday, was a vegetarian and a longtime health advocate who reportedly once handed out containers of carrot juice at Halloween.

We remember Jobs for so many innovative ideas, including Apple's iPhoto facial recognition software, which recognizes the faces of cats in addition to those of humans, reflecting the importance of companion animals in our homes and hearts. PETA also recently recognized Jobs for what he didn't do: He refused to sell a gruesome app on Apple's app store called iSealClub—which involved, as the name suggests, bashing cartoon seals over the head with clubs.

Let's also not forget that Jobs' Pixar film studio created heartwarming and thought-provoking movies about unlikely animal heroes, such as A Bug's Life and Finding Nemo, and he ended Disney's 10-year agreement with McDonald's to promote its films with movie-themed toys in Happy Meals after the entertainment giant merged with Pixar. As the vegetarian sharks in Finding Nemo said, "Fish are friends, not food." Finding Nemo's fish-friendly theme earned Pixar an award from PETA, as did Jobs' other accomplishments that helped change animals' lives for the better. And if his movies or his lifestyle inspired even one person to become a vegetarian, he no doubt saved hundreds of animals' lives, and for that we thank him.

I have never heard of Steve Jobs, but he made amazing movies such as "A Bug's Life" and "Finding Nemo." He is an vegetarian and a friend to animals. He will be missed, but he will always be remembered.

The loss of you as an outstanding human being as well as that of an extraordinary mind will be an imense loss to mankind. Your steadfast resolution being a vegetarian brought great awareness of the plight of animal suffering and the global impact of eating animals has to our planet. You always stood for the best and did not let "the media" or others sway your vision, beliefs and goals. You will be greatly missed. Thank you for all you did your our world.

Steve Jobs, you are truly missed. Your vision and genius gave so much to the world. Sometimes we feel that we cannot do without him. Many years from now, he will still be regarded as the Edison or Einstein of his generation and his compassionate views on animals will be seen as perhaps one of his greatest achievement. We miss you Steve, Come back soon!

Steve Jobs made a positive impact on our society and on the lives of animals. His legacy is one of which he and his family can be proud. What kind of world could we have if more leaders would embrace his values? It hurts when the good die young. Thanks to Steve, and to his family for the sacrifices they undoubtedly made, in order to share him with us.

Your too-short life packed so many innovations and humane actions that it's almost as if you lived double your chronological years. Thanks for not eating animals and promoting vegetarianism too.
