In a tweet sent to his more than 1 million followers Friday night Governor Jerry Brown of California has chosen a day to dub as Steve Jobs Day: Oct. 16, the same date Apple will hold a memorial at Stanford University.
Governor said, “This Sunday will be Steve Jobs Day in the State of California.”
Jobs died Oct. 5 and was buried two days later during a small private funeral. Since his passing, the world — including U.S. President Barack Obama, Microsoft’s Bill Gates and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg — has mourned his passing and celebrated his achievements.
Previously, Apple announced it would put on an employees-only memorial on Oct. 19 at company headquarters in Cupertino, Calif.
