The funeral is schedule for Thursday afternoon. Doctors in the Bahamas performed an autopsy on 16-year-old Jett Travolta on Monday but did not release results. A Bahamas undertaker said the teen's death certificate had "seizure" as the cause of death. The teen's body was cremated Monday and flown to the U.S. the same night.

Jett Travolta had a history of seizures and was found unconscious Friday in a bathroom.
