Apple has invited select industry members and others that were close to Steve Jobs to a private memorial set for October 16, according to WSJ.

“Apple Inc. has invited some of Silicon Valley’s biggest names to a memorial service for Steve Jobs Sunday, Oct. 16, according to a copy of the invitation and several invitees.”

The memorial service will be held at Stanford University campus on Sunday evening. Invitees were asked to reply to Jobs’s wife, Laurene Powell Jobs, through her charity organization Emerson Collective. 

This follows a private funeral held for family and friends of Jobs last week, and will be followed by a celebration of Steve’s life and accomplishments for employees at Apple headquarters in Cupertino on October 19.
