A funeral for Apple founder Steve Jobs is taking place Friday, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The funeral is a small private gathering at an undisclosed location.

Jobs passed away on Wednesday at the age of 56.

Jobs had battled cancer in 2004 and underwent a liver transplant in 2009 after taking a leave of absence for unspecified health problems. He took another leave of absence in January - his third since his health problems began - and officially resigned in August.
