Charlie O'Neill was the only son of Jack and Sara O'Neill. He accidentally shot himself with O'Neill's personal gun in 1995.


Charlie was born from Jack and Sara O'Neill, and lived in Winter Park. He loved riding bicycle and was an excellent baseball player gathering some rewards. He loved playing baseball with his father, but O'Neill, quite busy those times, didn't play so much with him. One day of 1995, when O'Neill and his wife were together outside home, They heard a gunshot from the inside. They rushed in the house and discovered Charlie who accidentally shot himself, playing with O'Neill's personal gun. They brought Charlie to the hospital, but Charlie died here soon after. Following Charlie's death, O'Neill came to depression, and didn't say a word, leading their marriage to collapse (Stargate, SG1: "Cold Lazarus", "The Devil You Know", "Unnatural Selection").
