Subject: I am who I am because of you.

I don’t really know what to say. I never met him, I never knew him. I was and am such a huge fan, I always watched the keynotes and was so inspired that all I wanted to do was to was to work with the technology that Steve inspired. I became a Certified Apple Technician, and went on to get all of Apples Server Certifications. I was hired by a non profit, they use all Apple technology from the computers to servers and everything in between.
I love my job because I love the technology that I work with and I am truly happy with my life and its all because of Apple and so much of Apple was Steve Jobs. He made it possible for me to be happy and enjoy my life and my job. I am so passionate about this technology. The biggest goal of my life was to eventually meet Steve Jobs or even just be in the same room as him.
I got the go ahead to be at the last WWDC but was not able to acquire tickets. It feels like a big blow to know that I will never meet or see in person the man who has made my life what it is today. I feel a big void in my heart and I truly miss him. I guess I am writing this because I wanted someone to know how much he has touched my life even if it was touched indirectly. It has changed me and made me who I am today.
