In his acceptance speech, Foulkes said Jobs “hated awards, especially awards about him” and teared up because of a tribute video featuring photos of Jobs and video of his last appearance before the Cupertino City Council.

Foulkes also made mention of the project to build a new campus for Apple in Cupertino that Jobs had designed.

Steve designed this campus as a product. You’ll be very excited as it comes to fruition. It’s something that is an engineering marvel that will rival any building on the planet and something that Steve, up till the end made sure was going to be a lasting legacy for Cupertino of Apple

The Chamber’s annual STAR (Service Teamwork Achievement Recognition) Award is an annual event to recognize those who perform outstanding community service or show exceptional leadership.

The President’s award is at the discretion of the Chamber’s current president, who is now John Zirelli, general manager of Recology.
