Christian Oliver, an actor known for his role in Indiana Jones, shared a heartbreaking Instagram post before he died.

Oliver was best known for his 2002 – 2004 roles in the German action TV series Alarm für Cobra 11.

He also played Brian Kelleron in Saved by the Bell: The New Class in 1995.

And in 2023, Oliver also offered his voice acting talents in Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, the most recent addition to the hugely popular series.

This week, it was confirmed that Oliver has tragically passed away.

And to make this news even more heartbreaking, his two daughters died by his side.

Oliver was on a plane that crashed in the waters off Bequia, which is part of St. Vincent in the Caribbean on Thursday, January 4.

Oliver was with his two children, Madita and Annik, who were just 10 and 12 years old. He shared his daughters with ex-wife Jessica Mazur.

The American pilot, Robert Sachs, was also killed on impact.

In the wake of the tragedy, Oliver’s ex-wife, Mazur, has shared a statement on Instagram by Wundabar Pilates, the studio where she works.

“We are deeply saddened by the tragic plane accident on January 4, 2024, which took the lives of our beloved family members,” the statement reads.

“Madita, a vibrant 7th-grade student at Louis Armstrong Middle School, was known for her lively spirit and excelled in academics, dance, singing, and performances.

“Annik, a 4th-grade student at Wonderland Ave Elementary School, was recognised for her gentle yet strong demeanour. She was always the first to offer a kind word or a comforting hug. Her passions included basketball, swimming, and various forms of art.

“The deep bond, infectious laughter, and adventurous spirit shared by Madita and Annik will be profoundly missed in their communities.

“Their devoted mother, Jessica Klepser in LA, survives the girls. They also leave behind their grandparents, several aunts, uncles, and cousins in Germany.

“Christian, an actor in Europe and the US, and a real estate agent with a broad network of close friends worldwide, is survived by Jessica, his parents and sister in Germany. His loss will be deeply felt by all who knew him.”

And now, Oliver’s final, haunting Instagram post has gone viral.

He shared an image of a tropical beach, alongside a text overlay reading: “Let love rule. Wishing all of you the best for 2024!”

One fan commented: “My deepest sympathy to his wife on the unimaginable loss of husband and two daughters. There are no words.”

Somebody else said: “This post is particularly heartbreaking.”

“So sad that this was the last thing he posted on his feed,” wrote a third.

There is a GoFundMe open to ‘help cover the cost of returning Christian and the girls home, funeral and memorial services, legal expenses, and will go a long way in support of Jessica and the extended family during this terribly difficult time’.
