Steve Jobs to appear on US postage stamp in 2015

Steve Jobs

The Washington Post is reporting that an advisory committee of regular citizens has voted to include the image of Steve Jobs on postage stamps beginning in 2015. It’s not the first time a deceased icon has appeared on stamps in the US. Previous names include Elvis Presley, Bing Crosby, James Dean and many others – you can see the full list here.

The committee consider any suggestions from the public that are “contemporary, timely, relevant, interesting and educational.” Clearly, Steve Jobs is a fitting candidate given his role in transforming so many technology sectors in recent years and decades.
