John Travolta Honors Son Jett 13 Years After Death: ‘Think About You Everyday’

“My dearest Jetty, I miss you more than words can say".

“My dearest Jetty, I miss you more than words can say,” John Travolta wrote on Wednesday, when his son, Jett Travolta, would have turned 30.

The son of John and the late Kelly Preston died in January 2009 while on vacation in the Bahamas. “I think about you everyday,” wrote John in the caption of a black-and-white throwback photo of him with Jett. “Happy Birthday. Love, your Dad.”

Fans and friends immediately commented the photo. “Happy Birthday, Jett,” wrote actor Emma Booth. “Oh, John. My hand in yours” wrote Jamie Lee Curtis. John’s daughter, Ella Travolta, added, “Happy Birthday Jetty. We love you so much.” 

John Travolta’s love for his son

John always honors his son on his birthday. In 2021, the actor shared another photo of him smiling with his son. “Happy birthday, my beautiful Jetty. I love you,” wrote Travolta. In 2020, both John and wife Kelly celebrated Jett by sharing different photos of him on their respective Instagram accounts. “Happy Birthday Jetty! We love you!” John captioned his post. Kelly wrote, “Happy Birthday to our sweetest Jetty. We love you!”

Kelly sadly passed away in the summer of 2020 after a two-year battle with breast cancer. The actress, best known for her roles in Jerry Maguire, Twins, and For Love of the Game, was 57-years-old. On the first Mother’s Day since her passing, John posted a sweet tribute to her. “Dearest Kelly, you brought into my life three of the most wonderful children I have ever known. Thank you. We love and miss you. Happy Mother’s Day.”
