On Monday morning, Satya Nadella alongside his spouse Anu announced that their son, Zain Nadella, had died, says Bloomberg. Zain Nadella, aged 26, suffered cerebral palsy from birth. Zain’s death was also said to have been communicated to the company’s executives through email. It encouraged executives to keep the family in their sympathies while allowing them to mourn discreetly.
Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s CEO since 2014, acknowledged the values he learned from parenting and raising his son as the driving force for the company’s efforts to improve its products for persons with disabilities.
For the first time, the Nadella family and the Seattle Children’s Hospital, where Zain was treated, have established a joint endowed chair in pediatric neurosciences, according to a Bloomberg post. Zain, who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and suffered from asphyxiation while in the womb, weighed just 3 pounds when he was delivered.
“Zain will be remembered for his eclectic taste in music, his bright sunny smile and the immense joy he brought to his family and all those who loved him”
