Charlie Pollak, pilot for Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign, dies at 59

We don’t often feel sorry for the Clintons, but losing a family friend is something we wish not even they had to go through.

Hillary Clinton recently made the announcement:

Professional pilot and Clinton family friend Charlie Pollak has passed away.

“Charlie was a terrific pilot whose love for the skies was apparent every time you boarded a plane he was flying,” Clinton said. “He was full of an energy and optimism unique to people fortunate enough to love their job.”

“He will be missed,” Clinton concluded.

Pollak had certainly spent a lot of time with the Clintons, so it’s no surprise Hillary was a little shaken by Pollak’s death. In fact, Pollak had served as one of the Clinton’s primary means of transportation during Hillary’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Sure, Hillary would eventually be embarrassed on Election Day 2016 when she lost the contest that most of America was pretty sure she had locked up.

Despite that horrible ending for the Clinton campaign in 2016, that doesn’t mean that the time period in their lives didn’t contain some positives.

Pollak was one of those bright spots for the Clintons in what is now remembered as an otherwise disappointing stretch for them.

It isn't just the Clinton family that's sad, though.

If the outpouring of support after his death is any indication, Pollak had a LOT of friends and family.

"While we find solace in knowing he is no longer in pain, our grief is profound, and the void left in our lives is immeasurable," Charlie Pollak's sister wrote after his death. "Charlie was a wonderful father to Nico, Sianna, and Mattix, and a partner to Adriana. He was a devoted son, the best brother anyone could have, a caring uncle, and a loyal friend who touched the lives of many with his kindness, generosity, and unwavering spirit."

Before he passed, Charlie was able to achieve his life's goal of becoming a pilot.

Not all of us hit all of our objectives in life, but Charlie was one who capitalized on the opportunities before him.
