John Travolta & his wife Kelly Preston are mourning the loss of their son Jett

John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston are preparing to return home from the Bahamas with their son Jett's ashes today.

The 16-year-old died after a seizure at the family’s holiday home on New Year’s Eve.

It is thought trained pilot John will fly the remains back to Ocala, Florida, on his personal plane.

At a news conference, funeral home director Keith McSweeney confirmed Jett's remains were being cremated.

'There is a lot of grief, a lot of pain, a lot of tears,' said Bahamian lawmaker Obie Wilchcombe, a friend of the Travoltas.

'John and Kelly are two crying human beings, not movie stars.'

The couple also have an 8-year-old daughter, Ella.
