NASSAU (Reuters) - The teenage son of actor John Travolta (http://omg.yahoo.com/celebs/john-travolta/85) died suddenly on Friday during a family vacation in the Bahamas, according to the family's lawyer.
Jett Travolta, 16, suffered a seizure at his family's vacation home at the Old Bahama Bay Hotel on Grand Bahama Island, attorney Michael Ossi said.
Attempts were made to revive him, but he died at the scene, Ossi said.
Jett, who had a history of seizures, was the eldest child of Travolta and his wife, actress Kelly Preston (http://omg.yahoo.com/celebs/kelly-preston/1197). They also have a daughter, Ella Blue, who was born in 2000.

I, also, was just reading about this. What I read stated that Jett was either autistic, or suffered from Kawasaki Syndrome, which can lead to heart disease. My heart hurts for them. They seem to be such a genuine family, in a world of Hollywood craziness.

:-( That's terrible.My heart definitely goes to them right now.

I couldn't believe it when I read it. How heartbreaking. I always thought he was one of the few down to Earth celebs and respected that he had stayed married when most of Hollywood considers it a badge of honor to rotate mates with each new script.

Just too sad to start the new year that way.

I was shocked and saddened as well to read this. My prayers go out to the Travolta family.
