The couple first met when their paths crossed in the film industry, leading to a loving proposal in Gstaad, Switzerland in 1991, followed by a private wedding ceremony in Paris. They were blessed with three children: Ella, Ben, and Jett, who tragically died at 16 from a seizure related to his autism and Kawasaki disease.

Throughout his career and personal life upheavals, John has consistently put his children first, embodying the role of a nurturing and supportive father. Despite his own grief, he’s been a pillar of strength for his kids, helping them navigate their futures as best he can.

In addition to his fatherly duties, John recently decided to part with the family’s longtime vacation home in Maine—a beautiful estate with a history as rich as its architecture, boasting 20 bedrooms and an expansive view of the ocean. Now, he spends most of his time in his unique Florida home, which features a direct runway to the front door, reflecting his passion for aviation.

John’s resilience in the face of loss is inspiring. He’s not only managing his sorrow with grace but also keeping his family close, making memories with his children around the world. His journey underscores the timeless lesson that personal healing is a path walked with the support of loved ones, and John Travolta continues to walk this path with dignity and love.
