Steven Paul Jobs (1955 – 2011) was the chairman, chief executive officer (CEO), and co-founder of Apple Inc. Jobs came up with the company's name while he was on a diet of fruits and Vegetables.
Jobs is widely recognized as a pioneer of the personal computer revolution, along with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
He was known to be Pescatarian and some people say he lived also a vegetarian lifestyle.
At his wedding on March 18, 1991, in a Buddhist ceremony at the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite National Park, the vegan wedding cake was in the shape of Yosemite's Half Dome.
In mid-2004, before finally having surgery for a cancerous tumor in his pancreas, he tried (among other things) a vegan diet – a decision he later regretted as his health declined.
