The news comes from Forbes – an American business magazine – in a post where they talked about information revealed from the official death certificate of Steve Jobs who, as we all know, died last Wednesday.
The death certificate that Forbes got its hands on was obtained from Santa Clara County Public Health Department. It categorically states that Steve Jobs was laid to rest on Friday at Alta Mesa Memorial Park in Palo Alto, California.

He will be surrounded by some of the artists he loved, the technologists who inspired him, and a former U.S. Secretary of the Interior for good measure.
Jobs died from respiratory arrest after suffering from metastatic pancrease neurodocrine tumor which was first diagnosed around five years ago. No biopsy or autopsy was performed and it is now confirmed that he was laid to rest this past Friday on October 7th, after we learned that his private funeral was taking place earlier that day.
According to Forbes, Jobs “will be in good company” as Alta Mesa Memorial Park is the final resting place of folks like Hewlett-Packard co-founder David Packard and mentor to Packard and the other HP co-founder Walter Hewlett Lewis Terman who were personalities which inspired Jobs.
