Randolph Frederick Pausch , conhecido como Randy Pausch, foi um professor de Ciência da Computação, Interação homem-computador e Design na Carnegie Mellon University em Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, EUA e autor de um best-seller, ganhando fama com o multiaclamado The Last Lecture, livro baseado em uma palestra dada em 18 de setembro de 2007 na Carnegie Mellon University.

Pausch nasceu em Baltimore, Maryland, e cresceu em Columbia .

Em agosto de 2006, Pausch teve um câncer pancreático diagnosticado. Ele começou então um tratamento pesado, que incluía em sua maioria técnicas experimentais de quimioterapia. Porém, em agosto de 2007, ele mesmo disse que sofreu uma metástase para outros órgãos, significando que havia se tornado terminal. Ele começou então um novo tratamento em quimioterapia, com outro objetivo: estender sua vida ao máximo. Com isso, os médicos deram-lhe mais 3 a 6 meses.

Em 2 de maio de 2008, um exame PET mostrou que seu câncer se espalhou ainda mais, para alguns órgãos vitais, principalmente no peritônio e no retroperitônio, evidenciando sua piora no estado de saúde.

Em 25 de julho de 2008, Diane Sawyer anunciou no Good Morning America que Pausch havia morrido naquela manhã.

Pausch morreu em sua casa, em Chesapeake, no sul da Virgínia, ao lado de sua mulher, Jai Pausch, e seus filhos: Dylan, 6 anos, Logan, 4, e Chloe, 2 .

It's about my childhood dreams and how I've achieved them — I've been very fortunate that way; how I believe I've been able to enable the dreams of others, and to some degree, lessons learned: I'm a professor — there should be some lessons learned — and how you can use the stuff you hear today to enable your dreams or enable the dreams of others.

„Wait long enough and people will surprise and impress you.“

— Randy Pausch
Context: Wait long enough and people will surprise and impress you. He said, when you are pissed off at somebody, and you're angry at them, you just haven't given them enough time. Just give them a little more time — and they'll almost always impress you. And that really stuck with me. I think he's absolutely right on that one. When Pausch spoke of "when you’re screwing up and nobody’s saying anything to you anymore, that means they gaveup." he was quoting Jon Snoddy http://www.snoddy.net/

„My dad was so full of life, anything with him was an adventure.“

— Randy Pausch
Context: My dad was so full of life, anything with him was an adventure. [Shows picture of his Dad holding a brown paper bag] I don’t know what’s in that bag, but I know it’s cool. My dad dressed up as Santa Claus, but he also did very, very significant things to help lots of people. This is a dormitory in Thailand that my mom and dad underwrote. And every year about 30 students get to go to school who wouldn’t have otherwise. This is something my wife and I have also been involved in heavily. And these are the kind of things that I think everybody ought to be doing. Helping others.
