While John Travolta and Kelly Preston struggle to cope with their grief over the sudden death of their 16-year-old son Jett, family and friends are remembering the teen as a cheerful boy who shared his dad’s passions for flying and sailing and whose bond with his parents and sister Ella Bleu, 8, was exceptionally close.
John’s attorney tells People Magazine,
According to a family friend, the family traveled everywhere as a “unit of four”.
“John and Jett were always riding in the golf cart together and going up in the ultralight plane and just being together. Jett liked the water and he swam like a fish.”
A memorial service is planned for Thursday in the family’s hometown of Ocala, Fla.
“Jett looked at John as if he was the sun and the moon,”
“And John reciprocated.”
