Its unbelievable, but Steve Job’s final words were “Oh Wow! Oh Wow! Oh Wow”, according to his biological sister and novelist Mona Simpson. She revealed this in an Oct. 16 eulogy she delivered that was published Sunday in The New York Times. Mona Simpson and Steve Jobs first met when she was 25 and living in New York. Simpson was present by Steve during his final moments.
Speaking at the service at Stanford University, she said, “If he loved a shirt, he’d order 10 or 100 of them. In the Palo Alto house, there are probably enough black cotton turtlenecks for everyone in this church.” Speaking on his philosophy of life, she said, “Fashion is what seems beautiful now but looks ugly later; art can be ugly at first but it becomes beautiful later.”
We recall that Apple founder Steve Jobs died due to respiratory arrest resulting from the Pancreatic cancer. She said in his final moments Steve Jobs glanced towards his family. “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,” she said. She continued to say, “Steve’s final words were, ‘Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow”.
It really is sad considering such an icon he is and to see him get sick because of this and die.
