OCALA, Fla. -- John Travolta and Kelly Preston – along with family and a slew of John’s Hollywood contemporaries – said goodbye to their son Jett Thursday.
The Travoltas were joined by Garth Brooks and wife Trisha Yearwood, James Gandolfini, Kirstie Alley, Forest Whitaker and Lisa Maria Presley. John reportedly kissed a large photo of Jett during the memorial service at their Ocala, Florida estate.
The intimate memorial service was kept under tight security, as the caterers, florists and guests arrived — both by car and by plane, landing next door to the Travolta home.
According to the Ocala Star Banner, the service was short. The 100 guests were seated under a white tent outside the family’s main residence.
Jett Travolta died due to a “seizure disorder,” according to his death certificate, obtained by Access Hollywood.
The 16-year-old died last week while on vacation with his family at the Old Bahama Bay Hotel on Grand Bahama Island.
