John Travolta's Touching Tribute To His Late Son Jett

Although John Travolta's son Jett passed away over 10 years ago, it's safe to say that his late son is never far from the actor's mind. According to the New York Post, Travolta shared a heartfelt remembrance on social media with fans and followers on would have been Jett's 29th birthday, April 13.

The actor took to Instagram to post a beautiful black and white throwback photo featuring a smiling Jett with a proud Travolta looking on. He captioned the post, "Happy birthday my beautiful Jetty. I love you." 

Sadly, Jett, then 16, experienced a seizure during a 2009 family trip to the Bahamas, and following that, hit his head on the bathtub. As reported by Us Weekly, his late mother, Kelley Preston addressed her son's accident during an appearance on The Doctors in 2012 explaining, "He was autistic, he had seizures, and when he was very young, he had Kawasaki syndrome."

Travolta's daughter, Ella, posted a tribute to Jett as well, sharing a photo of her and her brother together as young children. "I love you Jetty. Happy Birthday," she wrote.

"It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife Kelly has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer. She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many," he wrote on Instagram. "My family and I will forever be grateful to her doctors and nurses at MD Anderson Cancer Center, all the medical centers that have helped, as well as her many friends and loved ones who have been by her side.
