John Travolta’s Heartfelt Moment: he tearfully embraced his deceased son Jett, expressing deep sorrow and regret. What did he say to his dying son at the last seconds of his life?? His words will leave you speechless… this is so touching.

“People say the worst thing is losing your mother or father. Now I can say that this is not true. The worst thing is to lose a child…”

Famous American actor John Travolta (Pulp Fiction, Face/Off, From Paris with Love and other films) was a loving father for whom the whole world revolved around his family. But in an instant, life was split into two parts: on January 2, 2009, his 16-year-old son died as a result of an epileptic seizure caused by Kawasaki syndrome. This happened in the Bahamas while on vacation.

John Travolta said that losing a child is the worst thing that could ever happen.

The eldest son of John Travolta and actress Kelly Preston, Jett, who was born with autism, changed their lives from the moment he was born. It was an extraordinary love, as the actor recalls:

“I can’t imagine what life would be like without Jett. When he was born, he was washed and dressed, I held him in my arms and didn’t let him go for hours. Kelly slept after giving birth, the doctors came to take the baby for tests, but I refused to give him up. He said that – not today, another time. It’s like I’ve gone crazy.”

The beloved son lived only 16 years… The whole family was vacationing in a country house on the island of Grand Bahama when the tragedy occurred. “We were sleeping when I heard my son knocking on the door in his room downstairs. “I immediately rushed to him,” Travolta recalls. “At this time, medical nurses were already near him. They tried to save Jett, who was having a seizure. I immediately replaced the one who was doing artificial respiration, the other one was performing chest compressions at that time.”

“Jett regularly had such seizures, so we knew how to act, what to do. And we always managed. Always, except this time. The last one…”

Jett could not be saved. He died without regaining consciousness.

Tarino Lightbourne, a paramedic at the scene, recalled that John Travolta looked like he was crazy as he continued to perform CPR on his son. He begged with tears in his eyes to be saved. Tarino later wrote: “He was crying, his eyes were red. I remember him looking at the ceiling and repeating tirelessly: “God, please help me.”

Lightbourne took the teenager to the hospital. He also witnessed the moment of his death: “John walked behind the curtain of the hospital room. There was indescribable pain in his eyes. And indescribable love for my son. He hugged his son and said, “I’m so sorry, Jett.” I think he meant, “Sorry Jett, I did the best I could.”

In an interview with US Weekly in 2019, John Travolta spoke about what it was like to lose a child. It was obvious that even after a decade, this wound had not healed and continued to hurt, just like on the first day. The actor said that after the experience, life can never be the same.

“This is the worst thing that has ever happened in my life. To tell the truth, I didn’t know if I could survive it… People say the hardest thing in the world is losing your mother or father. Now I can say that this is not true. The worst, most difficult thing is losing a child. Someone you loved, raised, watched grow every day. The one you taught to walk. The one who taught you to truly love. This is the worst thing that could ever happen to anyone,” the actor wrote on Facebook 10 years after the tragedy.

“This boy has brought so much joy into my life. So much happiness. These 16 years of fatherhood have taught me the most important thing on earth – unconditional love,” the actor added.

John Travolta says he would like to appeal to all people on Earth: “We need to stop in the middle of all this fuss and say: “Thank you.” Because we have children. And children should stop in the middle of all this fuss and say: “Thank you.” Because they have parents. Because life is very short. Spend as much time as possible with your parents, and parents spend as much time as possible with their children. Be gentle, be attentive. Because one day, when you look up from your phone, they may no longer exist… Love and live every day as if it were the last in your life. Because one day it will be so…”
