Governor Jerry Brown proclaimed Sunday Steve Jobs Day in California, the governor's office announced Saturday.
"To call him influential would be an understatement," Brown said. "His innovations transformed an industry, and the products he conceived and shepherded to market have changed the way the entire world communicates. Steve Jobs embodied the California dream."
Brown's announcement comes a day before the scheduled private memorial service for Jobs at Stanford University.
Jobs, 56, passed away on Oct. 5.
