The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the family and friends of Apple founder Steve Jobs held a small funeral for the legendary entrepreneur on Friday.

The newspaper quotes an unnamed source for its report. It said the source would not name the time or place of the event, in respect for Jobs and the privacy of his family.

The company Jobs founded, Apple Inc., has said there will be no public services for Jobs, who died Wednesday after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

Apple employees are expected to hold what CEO Tim Cook has called "a celebration of Steve's extraordinary life."
