Indiana Jones’ Christian Oliver’s Wife Speaks Out After Plane Crash Death With Kids

Jessica Klepser, the wife of actor Christian Oliver, has broken her silence following the tragic plane crash that claimed the lives of her husband and their two daughters, Madita, 12, and Annik, 10. The family was returning from a holiday in the Caribbean when their single-engine plane experienced engine trouble and crashed into the ocean.

In a statement posted on the Instagram page of Wundabar Pilates, where Jessica works as the regional manager of the California branch, she expressed her deep sadness over the accident. “We are deeply saddened by the tragic plane accident on January 4, 2024, which took the lives of our beloved family members,” Jessica wrote.

The plane, piloted by Robert Sachs, departed J.F. Mitchell Airport en route to St. Lucia but encountered difficulties shortly after takeoff. It crashed into the Caribbean Sea, and all four passengers on board did not survive. Local fishermen and the SVG Coast Guard responded to the scene, and divers recovered the bodies, which were transported to the mainland of Saint Vincent.

Jessica memorialized her children in the social media post, describing Madita as a vibrant 7th-grade student known for her lively spirit and Annik as a gentle 4th-grade student with a strong demeanor. She also paid tribute to her husband, Christian Oliver, an actor and real estate agent with a broad network of friends worldwide.

A GoFundMe has been set up to help Jessica and her extended family during this difficult time. The fundraiser will cover the cost of returning Christian and the girls home, funeral and memorial services, and legal expenses. As of Saturday morning, more than $58,000 had been donated toward their goal of $100,000.

Christian Oliver, whose real name is Christian Klepser, was a successful actor with more than 60 credits on his IMDb page. He appeared in major movies such as “Speed Racer” and “Valkyrie” and had a part in the latest installment of the “Indiana Jones” franchise. He will appear posthumously in the upcoming movie “Forever Hold Your Peace,” which he also produced.

The tragic loss of Christian Oliver and his daughters has deeply affected their family and community, leaving a profound impact on all who knew them.
