Funeral director confirms cremation

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.
