It can be remembered that when John Travolta was once interviewed by US Weekly, the "Blow out" actor reveled that this death was the worst thing to have had happened to him.
Kelly Preston also shared a photo of her hugging Jett with snow-capped mountains in the background. She essentially wrote the same thing as John Travota, greeting their son a happy birthday and writing they love him.
Kelly Preston was once interviewed by "The View," and she shared that her marriage essentially went through a lot.
Apart from Jett, Kelly Preston and John Travolta has two more children, Ella Bleu,20 and Benjamin, 9.
Given Jett's condition, the family has been a staunch supporter of the rights of people with autism and special needs.
