Jett Travolta, 16-year-old son of John Travolta, died today while vacationing with his family at Old Bahama Bay Resort on Grand Bahama Island. He was found by the family’s caretaker, Jeff Michael Kathrein, after he had reportedly had a seizure in the bathtub and hit his head. Attempts to revive him were unsuccessful and he died on the scene. Jett suffered from various health ailments, including Kawasaki Syndrome (a mysterious disease that affects organs and sometimes causes heart attacks — even in children).
In 1994, John Travolta told People, “I can’t imagine what life would be like without Jett. After he was born and cleaned up, I held him for hours while Kelly slept. When they came to take him away for various tests, I said, ‘No, you can’t see him today. You’ll have to do it another day.’ I went a little nutsy.” Sad.
