What makes the death so shocking is that both of his young daughters, age 10 and 12, also died.

Oliver, real name Christian Klepser, and his two young daughters were found dead following the recovery of four bodies from a plane crash off a Caribbean island on January 4, according to NBC News.

The star and his kids, Madita and Annik , were the only passengers flying aboard a small single-engine jet. The fourth person to perish was the pilot.

They were headed to St. Lucia after taking off from J.F. Mitchell Airport on the Grenadine island of Bequia. The girls’ mother Jessica, Oliver’s ex-wife, was not on-board at the time.

Let’s also remember the actors, singers and other celebrities who died in 2024.
