A Family's Love and Loss

John Travolta took to social media on April 12, marking what would have been a joyous occasion, his son Jett's 32nd birthday. The day was bittersweet, filled with love, memories, and the shadow of a loss that still lingers.

"Happy birthday my Jetty - not a day goes by where you’re not with me!," Travolta penned, sharing a heartwarming photo of the father-son duo along with Travolta's late wife, Kelly Preston.

In 2009, the Travolta family faced an unimaginable tragedy. Jett, just 16, passed away during a family vacation in the Bahamas after a seizure led to a fatal accident.

Diagnosed with autism and prone to seizures, Jett's sudden departure left a void in the family that could never be filled. Yet, through the pain, the Travolta family remains united, cherishing the memories of Jett and Kelly, who also passed away in 2020

The post drew heartfelt reactions from fans and friends alike. Ella Travolta, Jett's sister, commented, "Happy Birthday Jetty," echoing the family's sentiment.

Family and friends have been everything

John and his children – daughter Ella, 24, and son, Benjamin, 13 – have been incredibly strong following the heartache in their lives.

Speaking to 'Esquire' in 2021, John explained that his primary focus will always be his kids. "I will ensure the future of my children, help them with what they want to do with their lives," he said. "It is what I do with Ella now with her films and teaching her to work in the profession. Ben is barely ten-years-old. I want to help him evolve because he has his whole life ahead of him."

Rita Wilson, a close family friend, added, "Will never forget him. Or Kelly," reminding us of the impact Jett and Kelly had on those around them.

In the face of such loss, Travolta has openly shared how his faith helped him navigate the darkest times.

In a candid 2014 interview, he expressed his gratitude towards the Church of Scientology for their unwavering support, stating, "They didn't take a day off, working through different angles of the techniques to get through grief and loss."
