Steve Jobs getting his own postage stamp in 2015

IPod. IPad. IStamp?

Steve Jobs, the late cofounder and chief executive of Apple, is among several pop culture figures who will be featured on U.S. postage stamps over the next few years.

The stamp for Jobs, who led Apple during its creation and then again during its resurgence in the late 1990s and early 2000s, will be available in 2015, according to documents obtained by the Washington Post. Jobs' stamp is currently being designed.

Besides Jobs, others to be honored on stamps in the next few years include Beatle John Lennon, NBA legend Wilt Chamberlain, gay rights activist Harvey Milk and musician Jimi Hendrix. Cartoon characters Dora the Explorer and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer are also planned.

As the list stands now, Jobs would grace a stamp just four years after his death. But the list is still subject to change, Susan McGowan, the U.S. Postal Service’s executive director for stamp services and corporate licensing, told the Post.
