On October 19th Apple will be holding an on campus ceremony to remember Apple co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs.
Tim sent the following to all Apple employees.
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 10 a.m. 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.
I look forward to seeing you there.
We’re hearing that Apple Stores will be closing for one hour on that Wednesday in memory of Steve Jobs. In the second to last sentence it states “We’ll have more details on AppleWeb closer to the date, including arrangements for employees outside of Cupertino.” Apple Store employees will use that one hour to view a live webcast of the Cupertino-based celebration.
