Apple to hold event honoring Steve Jobs October 19
Apple CEO Tim Cook wrote a letter to employees Monday and said Apple will hold a special event Oct. 19 at 10 a.m. PST in the company’s outdoor amphitheater to honor the late Steve Jobs.
Jobs passed away last week. A Bloomberg report said Jobs died of a pancreatic tumor and respiratory arrest. Jobs died at approximately 3 p.m. Oct. 5, 2011.
Here’s the text of Cook’s note:
Like many of you, I have experienced the saddest days of my lifetime and shed many tears during the past week. But I’ve found some comfort in the extraordinary number of tributes and condolences from people all over the world who were touched by Steve and his genius. And I’ve found comfort in both telling and listening to stories about Steve.
“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.
