Steve Jobs posthumously received the “Medal of Freedom”, America’s highest civilian distinction. This honor is bestowed annually upon those “who have made an exemplary contribution to the welfare, values, or security of the United States, to world peace, or to other significant societal, public, or private endeavors.”
The statement of US President Joe Biden includes: “Steve Jobs was the co-founder, chief executive, and chair of Apple […]. His vision, imagination and creativity led to inventions that have, and continue to, change the way the world communicates, as well as transforming the computer, music, film and wireless industries.”
