Apple is reportedly holding a private event to memorialize Steve Jobs at its campus on Oct. 19.
According to a report from MacGeneration, Apple chief executive Tim Cook sent out a note to employees advising them of the event. It appears to be private.
Separately, Bloomberg reported that Jobs died of respiratory failure five years after being diagnosed with a “metastatic pancreas neuroendocrine tumor“, the paper reported. He was buried at a nondenominational cemetery in Santa Clara County, Bloomberg said.
On Monday, Alta Mesa Memorial Park, the only non-denominational cemetery within Palo Alto, declined to comment when asked if Jobs was buried there. The letter, as reported by MacGeneration, included the paragraph:
“Although many of our hearts are still heavy, we are planning a celebration of his life for Apple employees to take time to remember the incredible things Steve achieved in his life and the many ways he made our world a better place. The celebration will be held on Wednesday, October 19, at 10am in the outdoor amphitheater on the Infinite Loop campus. We’ll have more details on AppleWeb closer to the date, including arrangements for employees outside of Cupertino.”
Jobs passed away at the age of 56 last week. Jobs is survived by his wife Laurene and two children, as well as a daughter from a previous relationship. Jobs’ family has said that a memorial Web site will eventually be posted, but so far it has not been made public.
