Eric Bolling’s former Fox News co-hosts on “The Five” paid an emotional tribute to their friend’s son, Eric Chase Bolling, who died tragically at age 19.
“You, of course, know Eric Bolling and his wife Adrienne and their beautiful son, Eric Chase. He passed away Friday in Colorado, where he was attending college,” Kimberly Guilfoyle said. “Eric Chase brought so much love and joy to his parents’ lives.”
She continued: “If you’ve watched our show over the years, you’ve probably heard Eric Bolling proudly talk about his sweet son. He was a baseball player like his dad, who played left field. He was an amazing young man. He did so much to help others, and he was an A-student who excelled in mathematics.”
Guilfoyle said everyone at Fox News grieves with the Bollings: “We are truly heartbroken and we want to extend our deepest condolences to the Bolling family. Eric Chase, may he rest in eternal peace.”
Eric Chase died of an accidental drug overdose on September 9, 2018. Eric Jr. was very close to Bolling, who was known for being a loving and devoted dad.
Eric Chase’s body was found in his bed at his Colorado apartment, according to multiple press reports.
“We are overwhelmed by the love and support we have received,” Bolling tweeted. “Adrienne and I thank you all and ask that you please keep us in your prayers.”
Rest in peace, Eric Chase Bolling (1998-2017).
