In a purported email from Apple CEO Steve Jobs to employees, Jobs sympathizes with staff who have loved ones affected by the current nuclear crisis taking place in Japan. The email, which was published Wednesday on Japanese tech site Chihouban.com, offers support to Apple employees who need it. “Our hearts go out to you and your families, as well as all of your countrymen who have been touched by this tragedy,” Jobs writes. “If you need time or resources to visit or care for your families, please see HR and we will help you. If you are aware of any supplies that are needed, please also tell HR and we will do what we can to arrange delivery.” Hit the jump for Jobs’ full letter to Apple employees.

To Our Team in Japan,

We have all been following the unfolding disaster in Japan. Our hearts go out to you and your families, as well as all of your countrymen who have been touched by this tragedy.

If you need time or resources to visit or care for your families, please see HR and we will help you. If you are aware of any supplies that are needed, please also tell HR and we will do what we can to arrange delivery.

Again, our hearts go out to you during this unimaginable crisis.

Please stay safe.

Steve and the entire Executive Team
