John Travolta's tribute for Jett on his 30th birthday

On Instagram, John Travolta shared a touching photo of himself with his son. The two flash big smiles in the black-and-white picture (seen above).

"My dearest Jetty, I miss you more than words can say. I think about you everyday. Happy Birthday. Love, your Dad," John wrote.

John Travolta's daughter added a comment on the tribute, writing: "Happy Birthday Jetty, we love you so much."

Many stars shared kind words for the Travolta family as well. Jamie Lee Curtis, for example, commented: "Oh John. My hand is in yours."

Jett was the eldest of the three Travolta kids. He died in 2009. During a family vacation, Jett hit his head and tragically suffered a fatal seizure. He was only 16.

The family also lost Kelly Preston in 2020. She sadly passed at age 57 after a battle with breast cancer.

John Travolta is now father to his daughter Ella, 22, and son Benjamin, 11, who was born a year after the family lost Jett.
