Randolph Frederick Pausch fue un profesor de ciencias de la computación, de interacción hombre-máquina y de diseño en la Universidad Carnegie Mellon en Pittsburgh, Pensilvania, Estados Unidos. Además como autor tuvo un elevado número de ventas en sus libros, consiguiendo fama mundial por su trabajo The Last Lecture, titulado Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams, discurso que dio el 18 de septiembre de 2007 en la Universidad Carnegie Mellon. El texto de la conferencia se adaptó y amplió en el libro La última lección.

En agosto del 2006, a Pausch se le diagnosticó un cáncer de páncreas. Comenzó un tratamiento muy agresivo para el cáncer que incluía cirugía mayor y quimioterapia experimental; sin embargo, en agosto del 2007, le dijeron que el cáncer había metastatizado al hígado y al bazo, lo que significaba que era terminal. Entonces comenzó una quimioterapia paliativa, intentando prolongar su vida todo lo que fuese posible. El 2 de mayo de 2008, un PET scan mostró que su cáncer se había extendido a sus pulmones, algunos ganglios linfáticos en el pecho, peritoneo y el retroperitoneo.

El 26 de junio de 2008, Pausch indicó que estaba considerando la posibilidad de detener aún más la quimioterapia, debido a los posibles efectos secundarios adversos.

El día 25 de julio de 2008 falleció a causa del cáncer de páncreas.[1]​

„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.
