Steve Jobs' last words: 'OH WOW. OH WOW. OH WOW.'

He looked at partner and kids 'and then beyond them'

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

A eulogy for Steve Jobs written and delivered by his sister was published over the weekend. It reveals many personal details of the techbiz titan's life, among them his last words as he lay dying with his family around him.

According to Mona Simpson, Jobs' sister and a professor of English at the University of California, his manner as he summoned her to his home in Palo Alto for the final time was "like someone whose luggage was already strapped onto the vehicle, who was already on the beginning of his journey". Simpson goes on to say:

Steve’s final words, hours earlier, 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.

Steve’s final words were:

OH WOW. OH WOW. OH WOW.

The eulogy is published in full by the New York Times. ®
