Silicon Valley royalty to honor Jobs

Apple invites Valley VIPs to a private memorial Sunday at Stanford University for Steve Jobs, report says.

Silicon Valley royalty will be assembling Sunday at Stanford University to pay their respects to Steve Jobs, at a memorial service organized by Apple, according to a report.

The company has sent invitations for the private event to some of the Valley's biggest names, according to The Wall Street Journal, which added that guests were asked to respond to a philanthropic organization, the Emerson Collective, set up by Jobs' widow, Laurene Powell Jobs.

A small private funeral was held for Jobs last week and a celebration of his life is planned for Apple employees at the company's Cupertino, Calif., headquarters on October 19.

The Apple co-founder, tech visionary, patron of computer-animation, and business comeback artist died October 5 of pancreatic cancer. He was 56.
