The Washington Post recently discovered that Apple co-founder Steve Jobs will appear on a commemorative U.S. Postage Stamp in 2015. As for what the stamp may look like, a list from the United States Postal Service's Citizens Stamp Advisory Committee reveals that a final design for the Jobs stamp hasn't yet been approved.

Although the list has been made and some work has started, Susan McGowan, the Postal Service's executive director for stamp services and corporate licensing, said the subjects "are subject to change" at any time.
Other iconic historical figures getting the stamp treatment in 2014 and 2015 include Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Johnny Carson and Elvis Presley.

Interestingly enough, the comments section on the Post indicates that under traditional USPS guidelines, an individual must be dead for at least 10 years before becoming eligible to appear on a stamp. As it turns out, that rule was actually phased out in 2007.
