The Apple CEO is also the largest individual shareholder in the entertainment giant.

NEW YORK – Just like Apple is standing by its CEO Steve Jobs during his medical leave and vice versa, the same is true for Walt Disney and his role there.
 
Jobs is expected to remain on the board of Disney despite his second medical leave after a similar absence in 2009, a person familiar with the matter told Dow Jones Newswires.

Jobs has been the largest individual shareholder in Disney since the entertainment giant acquired Pixar Animation Studios.
He has worked with Disney CEO Bob Iger and the rest of the board on the company’s digital strategy.

Apple on Tuesday reported another quarter of strong financial results.
