“It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife Kelly has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer. She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many. My family and I will forever be grateful to her doctors and nurses at MD Anderson Cancer Center, all the medical centers that have helped, as well as her many friends and loved ones who have been by her side. Kelly’s love and life will always be remembered. I will be taking some time to be there for my children who have lost their mother, so forgive me in advance if you don’t hear from us for a while. But please know that I will feel your outpouring of love in the weeks and months ahead as we heal.”

All my love,

Kelly Preston lived with husband John Travolta and family Jett (d. 2009), Ella Blue and Benjamin at the Jumbolair Aviation Estates in Ocala, Florida. Jumbolair Aviation Estates was built on the former horse ranch estate of Arthur Jones — the inventor and founder of Nautilus exercise equipment and MedX Corp. who built his own large private runway on the property.

John Travolta, actor and private pilot, and actress Kelly Preston were the first landowners at Jumbolair Aviation Estates, where the longest private runway in the United States is located, and where eventually two to three-acre estate lots were constructed with direct runway taxiway access to the 7,500 runway at Greystone Airport or Jumbolair Airport.
