In July 2008, Randy died of complications from pancreatic cancer. He was just 47 years old.
Randy may be gone, but Dr. Oz says his legacy lives on.
"He shed a light for me on a part of my existence that, like many Americans, I shy away from thinking about...those deep corners of your existence. Places where you don't go naturally. That's often where the greatest beauty lies," Dr. Oz says. "Randy Pausch taught me to do that in the most trying of times."
Randy's wife, Jai, updates Oprah and on how she and her children have been since Randy died.
