Steve Jobs: 1955 - 2011

According to The Wall Street Journal, a private memorial will be held for Steve Jobs on October 16, with invitees to include close industry friends.

The event will be held at Stanford University's campus Sunday evening, according to the invitation.

Guests to the invitation-only service were asked to respond to Emerson Collective, a philanthropic organization established by Laurene Powell Jobs, Mr. Jobs's wife.

California Governor Jerry Brown has also announced October 16 will official be "Steve Jobs Day" in the state.

Meanwhile, 9to5Mac reports that Apple's internal celebration of Steve Jobs' life on October 19 will include Apple Retail employees.

Apple Stores will be closing for one hour (1-2 EST, 10-11 PST) on that Wednesday in memory of Steve Jobs. Apple Store employees will use that one hour to view a live webcast of the Cupertino-based celebration.

The public continues to mourn by leaving cards, flowers, and notes at Apple Stores worldwide, and many wore Jobs' signature black tops and blue jeans to the iPhone 4S launch last Friday.
