Dave Hollis, former Disney executive and ex-husband of blogger and bestselling author Rachel Hollis, has died at the age of 47.

Hollis had reportedly been hospitalized recently with heart issues before his death over the weekend at his home in Austin, TX. 

His family confirmed the news on social media, asking for prayers and support for the four children he leaves behind. 

“We are devastated,” Rachel Hollis wrote. “I have no words and my heart is too broken to find them. Please wrap the kids up in prayers as we try and navigate through the unthinkable.” 

Dave Hollis worked as president of worldwide distribution at Disney before leaving in 2018 to work as CEO of Chic Media, started by his then-wife Rachel Hollis. Her 2018 book, Girl Wash Your Face, sold more than 3 million copies and helped give the couple household name recognition. The two announced their divorce in June of 2020

Dave Hollis hosted a popular podcast called Rise Together, and authored three books in addition to public speaking, business ventures, and active online presence. He also fronted a fitness program called “Get Fit” with girlfriend, Heidi Powell.

News of his sudden death sent shockwaves through a community of friends, family, and followers, and many have taken to social media to remember the influential man.

Dave would have turned 48 on February 14th. We’re offering our prayers and support along with so many others to all those who loved him and are grieving today.
