Disney will be honoring Steve Jobs at the 2013 D23 Expo -- awarding Jobs with the 2013 Disney Legends Award.

The Disney Legends Awards program is a 26-year tradition of The Walt Disney Company. The three-day D23 Expo provides an opportunity for the public to be a part of the memorable presentations.

Steve Jobs changed the world of consumer electronics as the founder of Apple, and was known throughout the world for his visionary attitude and penchant for innovation. He was an early investor and chief executive of Pixar, and became the Walt Disney Company’s largest shareholder overnight when it acquired Pixar Animation Studios in 2006. That same year, he joined the Disney board of directors, and remained a valuable sounding board and advisor to the company until his passing in 2011.

In addition to Jobs, seven other recipients will be recognized including Tony Baxter, Collin Campbell, Dick Clark, Billy Crystal, John Goodman, Glen Keane, and Ed Wynn.

“The Disney Legend Award is our highest and most coveted honor," Disney Chair and CEO Bob Iger said. “It’s reserved for the extraordinary visionaries and artists behind the Disney magic, the men and women who push the limits of innovation and creativity to ensure Disney remains truly special."
