John Travolta has launched a charity in memory of his dead son, reports.

The Hollywood actor and his wife Kelly Preston — whose 16-year-old son Jett died from a seizure in January — have created the Jett Travolta Foundation to help children with medical and emotional needs.

The 55-year-old star’s official website says: “The Foundation shall endeavour to use its resources specifically to assist and provide relief to children with vision, hearing, mobility, communication, behaviour learning impairments or other special medical, environmental, health or educational needs.”

Jett was found lying motionless in a bathtub on Jan. 2 at his family’s Bahamas hotel. The teenager had a history of fits and it is believed he experienced a seizure and fell and hit his head.

He was found by a caretaker and immediately rushed to a hospital, but was pronounced dead on arrival.

Jett was diagnosed with Kawasaki Disease when he was two.
