CUPERTINO, California - Apple® is sad to announce the death of Apple Board member Jerome B. (Jerry) York. York, the chairman, president and CEO of Harwinton Capital, joined Apples Board of Directors in 1997. He was the former CFO of IBM and Chrysler, and former vice chairman of Tracinda. He is widely acknowledged for his contributions at Chrysler and IBM during their turnarounds.

"Jerry joined Apples Board in 1997 when most doubted the companys future. He has been a pillar of financial and business expertise and insight on our Board for over a dozen years,” said Steve Jobs, Apples CEO. "Its been a privilege to know and work with Jerry, and Im going to miss him a lot.”

Jerry York was born in Memphis, Tennessee in 1938. He graduated from the United States Military Academy, and received an MS from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and an MBA from the University of Michigan. Trained as an engineer, York worked his way up through Chrysler to become CFO.
