    Steve Jobs’s last words: ‘Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow.’

    Steve Jobs’s last words: ‘Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow.’

    By Hayley Tsukayama, Updated: Monday, October 31, 6:39 AM

    The eulogy of Steve Jobs’s by his sister, novelist Mona Simpson, was published in The New York Times over the weekend, offering a touching look into the late Apple co-founder’s life and last days.

    The speech, in a few deft strokes, sketches the outline of man who never stopped learning or trying to move forward. Simpson said that in the last year of his life he was still working on projects and reading about new subjects, including the paintings of Mark Rothko.

    Jobs called Simpson, who delivered the speech at Jobs’s Oct. 16 memorial service, on Oct. 4 asking her to come to his house and speaking “like someone whose luggage was already strapped onto the vehicle, who was already on the beginning of his journey, even as he was sorry, truly deeply sorry, to be leaving us.”

    Jobs faded over the day and by 2 p.m. — just hours after Apple wrapped its iPhone 4S event — could no longer be roused.
    Hours before he slipped into unconsciousness, however, he did leave some enigmatic final words, which Simpson wrote in all capitals letters in her speech.

    “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.”
