An official statement made on Kelly Preston's website thanks those around the world for their support.

Jett Travolta and Kelly Preston

"We would like to extend our deepest and heartfelt thanks to everyone who has sent their love and condolences.

Jett was the most wonderful son that two parents could ask for and lit up the lives of everyone he encountered. We are heartbroken that our time with him was so brief. We will cherish the time we had with him for the rest of our lives. We have received many messages of condolence from around the world and we want to thank everyone for their prayers and support. It has meant so much to us. It is a beautiful reminder of the inherent goodness in the human spirit that gives us hope for a brighter future."

John Travolta and Kelly Preston's son Jett died Friday after hitting his head in the bathroom. An autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow, then the body will be flown to Florida for Tuesday funeral services.

well, I am so sorry for this tragedy.
Let me first introduce myself Iam Dr. M.M subahi Iam Muslim from KSA. I wanted to let u know that even if we have different religions, different languages and different cultures still tragedy is a tragedy. We people in KSA feel sorry for every sad things could be happened to any one in the world, eventhough, we are called terrorists and primitive people but still we are human we feel , we suffer as any one in this universe. Think of this situation John do not let this event break u down , make it a point of total change in ur life and the same goes to Kelly. May Allah ( GOD ) help u to get over this catastrophe.

From the depths of my heart I want to express my sincerest condolences and prayers to you and your families. Having almost lost a child who suffered a traumatic brain injury (he did survive after a year in several hospitals and will never be the same- I am now his sole caregiver) I can only begin to understand the ordeal you are living and I am holding all of you close in my heart and in my prayers.
With love and prayers,

My our loving God hold you all in his arms and comfort you. May you know Jett is in a wonderful place and he will be waiting to see you again! God prepares us a place before we ever leave this earth. He is there now, with a promise of no more tears, hunger, night, rivers of gold! The lose of a child is one that leaves us aching in our soles, I have lost a child myself,I understand, fill the hole with wonderful memories and thoughts that will make your heart run over with joy and love. Laugh at good times through your tears, it will be healing for you! He’s not gone, he is in your hearts forever. Give yourselves time to grieve, love Ella, and each other and share again good times. I know you are loving and giving parents, God shine his light on you. I am praying for you all. My Love, Jeanne

I am so sorry for your loss of your Precious Jett. My son died at the age of 25 in 2001 and I know the Pain. It has been the hardest thing in the world for me to deal with. I am still here though and you will be too.
