Gov. Jerry Brown issued a proclamation on Saturday to declare Sunday as Steve Jobs Day in California.

In issuing the proclamation, the governor said the products Jobs introduced "changed the way the entire world communicates."

On Sunday night, Apple, the company Jobs co-founded, will hold a private memorial for close friends and colleagues at Stanford University.

Jobs died on Oct. 5 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 56 years old.
