John Travolta’s Sweet Photo With Late Son Jett Makes Our Hearts Hurt For This Family

If there’s one thing we know about John Travolta, it’s the immense love he holds for all of his family, and that his role as a dad to his kids Ella Bleu and Benjamin Travolta means the world to him. So when the proud father took to Instagram to wish his late son, Jett, a happy birthday — our hearts immediately began to ache for John. In 2009, Jett, whom John shared with his late wife Kelly Preston, died at 16-years-old while on a family vacation to the Bahamas. This week would have been Jett’s 29th birthday, and John’s beautiful tribute to his son reminds us how soon he was taken from the world — and the impact his death has had on his family since.
