Steve Jobs sister Mona Simpson revealed his last words in a eulogy she save at the Memorial Church of Stanford University. She said he looked at her, then his children, his wife and then beyond them all and said ‘Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow’.
The New York times printed the Eulogy “Steve’s final words were monosyllables, repeated three times. Before embarking, he’d looked at his sister Patty, then for a long time at his children, then at his life’s partner, Laurene, and then over their shoulders past them, before saying his final words.”
Jobs died very young, aged 56, after fighting cancer and receiving a liver transplant.
Simpson added “His breath indicated an arduous journey, some steep path, altitude. Laurene [his wife] next to him on the bed sometimes jerked up when there was a longer pause between his breaths.
She and I looked at each other, then he would heave a deep breath and begin again.”
Simpson met Jobs when she was 25, after Jobs found his birth mother, Joanne Schieble Simpson. They had a good relationship after this and became close. She said “When I met Steve, he was a guy my age in jeans, Arab- or Jewish-looking and handsomer than Omar Sharif.”
She said “He worked at what he loved. He worked really hard. Every day.”
