A small, private funeral is taking place Friday for Apple founder Steve Jobs, who died this week at age 56 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

The location was not disclosed out of respect for Jobs's family, the Wall Street Journal reports.

"The funeral will be a very private ceremony," Lt. Sandra Brown, a spokeswoman for the Palo Alto police department, tells Fox News.

No public services were set. Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook told employees in a letter that the company was "planning a celebration of Steve's extraordinary life" for staff.
