John Travolta sent a heartfelt thank you to his late son Jett on Instagram on his 30th birthday.

Jett, who he shared with his late wife Kelly Preston, died in 2009 at the age of 16 after banging his head on a bathtub during a seizure.

“My dearest Jetty”, the Fat star wrote alongside a black and white photo of the couple: “I miss you more than words can say. I am thinking of you every day [sic]. Happy Birthday. Love, your dad.”

Jett, born in 1992, suffered from Kawasaki disease as an infant and had a history of seizures. His parents later revealed that Jett was autistic. The death occurred while the family was vacationing at their vacation home at the Old Bahama Bay Hotel on Grand Bahama Island.

In a statement released after his death, Travolta and Preston wrote, “Jett was the most wonderful son two parents could ever wish for and he enlightened the lives of everyone he met.

“We are heartbroken that our time with him was so short. We will cherish the time we had with him for the rest of our lives.”

Travolta had two other children with Preston: Ella Bleu (born 2000) and Benjamin (born 2010).

In July 2020, Preston died at the age of 57 after a two-year battle with breast cancer.

In a statement at the time, Travolta wrote: “Kelly’s love and life will always be remembered. I will be making some time to be there for my children who have lost their mother, so forgive me in advance if you don’t hear from us for a while. But please know that I will feel your outpouring of love in the coming weeks and months as we heal.”
