Jett Travolta’s Funeral Date Set

Betsy Waldman / January 7, 2009

Jett Travolta, the 16-year-old son of John Travolta and Kelly Preston who passed away on January 2, will be laid to rest in Ocala, Florida, on Thursday, TMZ reports.

Jett was found dead after suffering a fatal seizure in the bathroom of his family’s vacation townhouse in the Bahamas. There was also speculation that he may have hit his head on either the bathtub or toilet. According to the boy’s parents, he had suffered from  Kawasaki disease and experienced “frequent and extremely serious” seizures every four days.

The teen was found by the family nanny on the morning of January 2 and was pronounced dead at Rand Memorial Hospital. His body was cremated and flown back to Florida on Monday.

The service will apparently not be a celebrity-oriented affair. TMZ further notes that, while the Hilton hotel in Ocala has reserved 17 rooms for memorial attendees, the only guests seen so far are “doctor/lawyer types.”
