California governor declares Sunday "Steve Jobs Day," memorial plannedCalifornia Gov. Jerry Brown announced Friday that Sunday, Oct. 16 will be "Steve Jobs Day" statewide, and will coincide with a private memorial planned for the Apple co-founder at Stanford University.
Brown tweeted the message late Friday after reports that some of Silicon Valley's biggest names had been invited to a memorial dedicated to Jobs next week.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple is planning a special service for Jobs at Stanford University this Sunday.
The small gathering of friends and tech industry insiders follows the private funeral held last week, and comes before Apple's local Oct. 19 celebration.
According to the Journal, invitations requested guests respond to Emerson Collective, a philanthropy established by Jobs' widow, Laurene Powell Jobs.
An Apple spokesman said the service on Sunday is a private invitation-only event.
Jobs died on Oct. 5 after a years-long battle with pancreatic cancer.
