Apple is holding a memorial service for Steve Jobs on Sunday at Stanford University. The Wall Street Journal says invitations have gone out to Silicon Valley luminaries and other people close to Jobs.

Apple tells the newspaper that the evening event is private. Apple has said that no public services are planned.

Jobs, who co-founded Apple and was the mastermind behind popular gadgets such as the iPhone and the iPad, died Oct. 5 at 56 after struggling for years with pancreatic cancer.

The Journal says a small private funeral was held a week ago. Apple is also holding an event this Wednesday for employees at its headquarters in Cupertino, California.

It's billed as a celebration of his life.
