Apple Co-Founder and CEO Steve Jobs died of respiratory arrest October 5, stemming from a pancreatic tumor, according to Bloomberg News.
The Santa Clara County Public Health Department in San Jose, California, issued the document Monday, listing respiratory arrest as the immediate cause of death, with "metastatic pancreas neuroendocrine tumor" as the underlying cause. There was no autopsy performed.
Steve Jobs, the legendary genius who co-founded Apple in the 1970s, was laid to rest on Friday in a private funeral and burial ceremony. The location of his burial is undisclosed at this time.
According to the Wall Street Journal, a source close to Jobs was very secretive about the matter when asked. He would not say where or when the event was taking place, noting that he wanted to respect the privacy of the late entrepreneur Jobs and his family.
Apple visionary Steve Jobs, who died Wednesday at the age of 56, reportedly began saying his goodbyes in February, four months before he made his final public appearance.
According to the NY Times, after years of fighting cancer, Jobs learned in February that his condition was terminal. What first began as a few dozen people wanting to say their goodbyes turned into an endless stream of people -- whose calls were mostly handled by his wife, Laurene.
After weeks of auditions of thousands, 162 acts became just 32. Four categories of contestants; boys, girls, "over 30s," and groups will be mentored by Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, LA Reid and Nicole Scherzinger.
