John Travolta and Kelly Preston
John Travolta and Kelly Preston’s son, Jett, had autism before sadly passing away at the age of 16 after he had a seizure. The couple, who are Scientologists, didn’t talk about their son’s condition until he was testifying to a grand jury after the death of his son and revealed his son was indeed autistic.
Preston said her son was "the most wonderful son that two parents could ever ask for."
