Steve Jobs Death Certificate Reveals Cause of Death to be Respiratory Arrest Due to Metastatic Pancreatic Tumor
Steve Jobs death certificate has revealed the official cause of death to be respiratory arrest, with “metastatic pancreas neuroendocrine tumor” as the underlying cause. The certificate, as mentioned by Bloomberg, also notes that the death occurred five years after the onset of the tumor, which suggests that Jobs had a recurrence of cancer sometime in 2006.
Mr Jobs was initially diagnosed with a rare form of pancreatic cancer in 2003, which was followed in 2004 by a surgery to remove the tumor. Initially thought to be a successful surgery, in 2009, Steve Jobs then underwent a liver transplant for unspecified reasons. Jobs took his final medical leave in January of 2011, before resigning as CEO of Apple in August, and passing away at about 3:00pm on October 5, 2011.
The death certificate listed his occupation as “entrepreneur”, and also notes that Steve Jobs died in his Palo Alto, California home. He was buried at an unspecified non-denominational cemetary in California’s Santa Clara county on October 7 at a private funeral.
