Travolta Family Received An Urn With Jett's Ashes

Travolta tried CPR to revive his son, who may have died in his arms before an emergency medical technician took over. Travolta and Preston have said Jett became very sick when he was 2 years old and was diagnosed with Kawasaki Syndrome, an illness that leads to inflamed blood vessels. Preston blamed household cleaners and fertilizers and said a detoxification program based on teachings from the Church of Scientology helped improve his health.

Actor John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston have returned to Florida with the remains of their 16 year old son, Jett, who died at the family vacation home in Grand Bahama. The couple received an urn with his ashes and left the island chain on Monday night, according to Obie Wilchcombe, a member of the Bahamas parliament and a family friend. Doctors in the Bahamas performed an autopsy on Jett on Monday but did not release results. However, a Bahamas undertaker told the AP the teen's death certificate had "seizure" as the cause of death.

Jett Travolta had a history of seizures and was found unconscious Friday in a bathroom. Funeral plans have not been announced.
