Steve Jobs will be memorialized in the National Garden of American Heroes

Apple co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs will be remembered in a National Garden of American Heroes with a statue of the visionary that will join hundreds of others in the park when it is built.

The order issued Monday is a revision of an earlier order to establish a statue park called the National Garden of American Heroes and to create an “Interagency Task Force for the Construction and Reconstruction of Monuments to American Heroes.” The new ordinance describes more of President Donald Trump’s plans for the garden and what to expect in them.

“The National Garden is being built to reflect the incredible splendor of the timeless state of emergency in our country,” says the order. “It will be a place where citizens, young and old, can renew their vision of greatness and embrace the challenge I presented to every American in my first address to Congress.”

The order includes a list of statues to be included in the garden. They were chosen to embody “the American spirit of daring and defiance, excellence and adventure, courage and trust, loyalty and love” and to make an “indispensable contribution” to American history.

The long list of statues includes Steve Jobs as well as many other notable names from American history, including presidents, inventors, and visionaries in their fields. The list spans a wide range of people and subjects like Wright Brothers and Albert Einstein, singers like Johnny Cash and Billie Holiday, and political heavyweights like Martin Luther King, Jr. and Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

In the updated order, it is not indicated where the garden will be laid out, but that a location is selected and financed by the Interior Minister. The original resolution had a deadline of July 4, 2026 on the 250th anniversary of the proclamation of the declaration of independence.

The garden was announced by Trump at an event on Mount Rushmore in July 2020 and was intended to be intended by Trump in response to the removal of statues and monuments for historical figures that the public had objected to. This includes a number that was removed in response to George Floyd’s protests in 2020.

Other people on the list to be reminded in the garden include:

  • Thomas Edison
  • Alexander Graham Bell
  • Nikola Tesla
  • Walt Disney
  • Johnny “Appleseed” Chapman
  • Amelia Earhart
  • Whitney Houston
  • Harper Lee
  • Norman Rockwell
  • Alex Trebek
  • Kobe Bryant
