Satya Nadella, the son of Microsoft CEO, died Monday.
26-year-old Zain Nadella was born with cerebral palsy. According to the news outlet, the elder Nadella sent an email to his executive team, informing them of the death. He asked them to keep the family in their thoughts, prayers, and allow them time to grieve privately.
"Zain will always be remembered for his eclectic taste of music, bright sunny smile, and the immense joy that he brought his family and all his loved ones," Jeff Sperring (CEO of Seattle Children's Hospital), wrote to his board. Bloomberg reported that it was shared with Microsoft executives.
A Microsoft spokesperson said to NBC News that Zain Nadella, Satya's only son, had died. "The Nadellas are taking their time to grieve as a family."
Nadella and Anu have three children together.
According to the company website, Satya Nadella is the third CEO of the company in its 40-year history. Nadella, 21 years old, emigrated to the United States from Hyderabad, India to complete a master's in computer science.
The company stated that he joined Microsoft in 1992, "where he would lead numerous products and innovations across company's consumer- and enterprise business." "Nadella is a member of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center's Board of Directors." Satya, Anu and other people with disabilities in Seattle support Seattle Children's Hospital.
