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.

    Carcinoid Neuroendocrine tumors. Totally not a well-known cancer. I have it and it is no fun. The JOBS FOUNDATION is greatly remiss NOT funding research for this ZEBRA disease.

    “I was actually a fruitarian at that point in time. I ate only fruit. Now I’m a garbage can like everyone else. And we were about three months late in filing a fictitious business name, so I threatened to call the company Apple Computer unless someone suggested a more interesting name by five o’clock that day, hoping to simulate creativity. And it stuck. And that’s why we’re called Apple”.

    In the end, however, even Steve Jobs could not overturn the laws of biochemistry. When you poison the human body, the result is the deterioration and eventual shut down of the body.

    He got pancreatic at an early age. His body was very healthy to fight the cancer. However, pancreatic has a low survival rate.

    In addition, it will be a different thing if someone gets it in his 60’s or later.

    RIP Steve Jobs. :(

    Pancreatic cancer often has a 3-5 month survival rate, so all things considered it is pretty amazing he survived from 2003 until now. Still, he passed much too young.
