Steve Jobs takes another health-related break from Apple

Apple CEO Steve Jobs has sent an email to all his employees, explaining that he’s asked for a period of leave in order to deal with health issues.

He’s previously undergone treatment for pancreatic cancer and had a liver transplant in 2009.

His email, which was issued as part of a press statement, reads:

Team,

At my request, the board of directors has granted me a medical leave of absence so I can focus on my health. I will continue as CEO and be involved in major strategic decisions for the company.

I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for all of Apple’s day to day operations. I have great confidence that Tim and the rest of the executive management team will do a terrific job executing the exciting plans we have in place for 2011.

I love Apple so much and hope to be back as soon as I can. In the meantime, my family and I would deeply appreciate respect for our privacy.

Steve
