Steve Jobs, the visionary founder of Apple, sadly passed away on Wednesday October 5 after a long battle with a rare pancreatic cancer.

From the Mac, his involvement with Pixar, the iPhone and everything in between, he single handedly changed the world of technology and smart phones over his decades long career. The 56-year-old had left his position as Apple CEO only this summer, with not many realizing what grave condition he was in.

Many celebrities took to their Twitters to express their feelings over Steve’s passing, and offer their condolences.

Celebs such as Glee’s Harry Shum Jr., CNN’s Anderson Cooper, and actor/tech fiend Wil Wheaton all took to Twitter to express their emotions. Check out the gallery to see who else spoke out and and what they had to say.

Apple released a statement on Tuesday, saying:

“We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today. Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve. His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts.”

Though he’s now gone, the indelible impact he had on the world of technology will live on forever.
