Very sad news today, the teenage son of actor John Travolta died suddenly on Friday during a family vacation in the Bahamas, according to the family’s lawyer. Jett Travolta, 16, suffered a seizure at his family’s vacation home at the Old Bahama Bay Hotel on Grand Bahama Island, attorney Michael Ossi said.
Attempts were made to revive him, but he died at the scene, Ossi said. Jett, who had a history of seizures, was the eldest child of Travolta and his wife, actress Kelly Preston. They also have a daughter, Ella Blue, who was born in 2000.
According to Perez Hilton, a police spokeswoman says that Jett hit his head in a bathtub and apparently that triggered the seizure. For years, it was reported that Jett Travolta suffered from autism. Either way, our thoughts and prayers go out to the Travolta family. It’s always so sad to lose a family member and especially a child.
