It is always a sad news day when someone dies, and even more tragic when it is a child. John Travolta’s son, Jett, died suddenly today after suffering a seizure.
According to the family’s lawyer, Michael Ossi, Jett suffered a seizure at the family’s vacation home at the Old Bahama Bay Hotel on Grand Bahama Island. Jett had a history of seizures, and attempts to revive him were unsuccessful. He died on the scene.
In recent years, the family denied reports that Jett was autistic, and clarified that he instead suffered from Kawasaki Disease. Kawasaki Disease is a rare illness that could cause heart problems. Jett was diagnosed after he became “very, very sick with high fever and swollen glands and peeling fingers and rash all over his body” eight years ago.
According to his father, Jett loved “the outdoors — sports, swimming, bike riding, hiking.” One of John’s planes is named after Jett.
So sad, out hearts go out to the Travolta family.
