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 .

„Its important to have specific dreams. Dream Big. Dream without fear."“

—  Randy Pausch
Context: Its important to have specific dreams. Dream Big. Dream without fear.

„Your passion must come from the things that fuel you from the inside.“

—  Randy Pausch
Context: You will need find your passion. Many of you have already done it, many of you will later, many of you may take to your thirties or forties, but don't give up on finding it. Right, then all you are doing is waiting for the reaper. Find your passion and follow it. And if there is anything that I have learned in life, you will not find that passion in things. And you will not find that passion in money. Because the more things and the more money you have, the more you will just look around and use that as the metric — and there will always be someone with more. Your passion must come from the things that fuel you from the inside. And honors and awards are nice things, but only to the extent that they regard real respect from your peers. And to be thought of well by people you think of more highly up is a tremendous honor I've been granted. Find your passion, and in my experience, no matter what you do at work or what you do in in official settings, that passion will be grounded in people. It will be grounded in the relationships you have with people and what they think of you when your time comes.

—  Randy Pausch
Context: So what is today's talk about then? 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. And as you get older you may find that enabling-the-dreams-of-others thing is even more fun.

„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.
