He met his future wife Colleen Gunderson in 1992 – Colleen is a publicist by profession. They dated for two years before he asked her to marry him, and they tied the knot on 7 May 1994. He and Colleen live in California along with their children.

Celebscouples has stated that Schlatter had two relationships before he met Colleen. There are rumors that he dated famous actress Jennifer Aniston while they were filming a pilot together for the “Ferris Bueller” film, however, Charlie hasn’t accepted or denied the rumor.

Charlie has had to live with chronic myeloid leukemia – a cancer of the blood – for over 10 years, which isn’t curable but is treatable and manageable. He talked to ABC7 and said ‘So basically, I’m a guy who’s in chemotherapy every day. Just a little bit of chemotherapy every day, and that’s what keeps me in the game.’ He first went to his doctor to consult on what he thought was a spider bite, but was informed that his white blood count was too high.


Charlie participated in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Man and Woman of the Year fundraising campaign, with the funds collected used to raise awareness and help find the cure for cancer.

1[Of Dick Van Dyke]: Working with Dick Van Dyke was one of the greatest experiences in my life. By far, the most talented, inspirational, gracious human beings I have ever had the pleasure of sharing a scene with. He was always so great to me and so great to my wife and children.
2[on his on- and off-screen chemistry with Dick Van Dyke, who played Dr. Mark Sloan]: I loved Dick Van Dyke. Before I got that role in the show, I was a big Dick Van Dyke fan. You know 10 years after the fact, I'm a bigger Dick Van Dyke fan. Dick was like working with Santa Claus, everyday. He was the most, kind, generous, gregarious man that I ever had the fortune of working with, and you know, to me, that was like hitting the actor's lottery. You don't always get to work on the show where you love everybody and this was one of them, so, it was a true, true blessing and I'm thankful for everyday of it.
3[Who once heard of Dick Van Dyke's reference to his co-star's real name]: Dick always calls me Charlie instead of Jesse on camera. And he'll hit his head and say: Why don't you just change your name in Jesse?
4About working with Barry Van Dyke: "Barry is a great guy, nothing but honesty coming out of him...He and I die laughing about the stupidest things and we're like a couple of school girls...We're so physically opposite, it's fun playing off him, he's such a straight man."
5About his short-term photographic memory :"When you're doing a show like this (Diagnosis Murder (1993) ), it's like cramming for an exam two minutes before the test. I can look at a page for a while and have it in my head and when we move onto the next scene I've completely forgotten what I just said."
6Talking about a girl from school: "The girl didn't only happen to be cute, she was also the only girl at school that was shorter than me."
