Oct 10, 2011 by

Apple CEO Tim Cook has sent an email to employees of Apple urging them to attend a celebration of the life of Apple co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs.

Steve Jobs, who passed away earlier this week of pancreatic cancer, has revolutionized the world and changed the technology industry and will be much missed by people around the world and all of us here at TechSpheria.

Here is Cook’s email in its entirety:

Team,

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.

I look forward to seeing you there.

Tim
