This morning during O News, Jackie O read out a letter that had been released by Steve Irwin’s father.

The letter had been discovered while Steve’s Dad was moving books, and the letter fell out onto the floor.

Steve eloquently put into words how much his parents shaped the person he came to be, and thanked them for everything they did for him.

The words struck a chord with Jackie and she got very choked up reading it out on air.


The letter’s release coincides with the 10-year-anniversary of Steve’s death on father’s day this Sunday.

Our thoughts are with his family on this tough day and anyone else who has lost a father.
