The limited release of Netflix’s Worth has recently aired, following Michael Keaton, Stanley Tucci, and Amy Ryan in a biographical film about the lawyer Kenneth Feinberg and Charles Wolf. The pair assess the value of life after the 9/11 attacks during the creation of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund.
The emotional biopic has two, leading actors at the helm to tell the tale, but we take a look behind the curtain at what happened to real Charles Wolf and where he is now.
What Happened to Charles Wolf?
Born in Buffalo, New York, Wolf was a devout singer and Kodak sales rep for 14 years. Wolf met his future wife, Katherine, in 1988 and the pair married in Wales.
Sadly, Katherine was killed 12 years later during the 9/11 attacks, after she had started a job as an executive assistant on the 97th floor of the World Trade Center’s North Tower.
After the tragic event, Wolf was inspired to advocate for 9/11 survivor’s rights and campaigned for the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund. He pushed for the government to extend the period of time people had to seek medical treatment, and his efforts caused an increase from 24 hours to 96 hours.
Where is Charles Wolf Now?
Uniting with the fund, Wolf continued to be a loyal supporter to the families of the 9/11 victims, and after a skeleton was found underground, Wolf asked Mayor Bloomberg to start another search for remains.
Wolf also assisted in the redevelopment of Ground Zero and has continued to be a spokesperson for the victims’ families during official meetings.
Reports going back a few years stated that Wolf still lived in the same apartment that he lived in with his wife, and he frequently visits the 9/11 memorial where Katherine’s name is etched.
