Jack LaLanne's Son -- I'm Taking Over the Family Biz

Jack LaLanne's son says he is ready to carry on the family business ... and will take over his father's role as the company's official ultra-fit spokesperson.

TMZ spoke with Jon LaLanne (pictured right) -- one of Jack's three children -- who told us, "Though we are saddened by our father's passing, the overwhelming response from fans and the media has made us all feel he is still with us."

Jon added, "I plan to carry on the family business. I will be alongside my mother Elaine, my wife Lora, my brother Dan and my sister Yvonne touring the country preaching my father's common sense approach to a longer and better life."

Jon is an accomplished businessman himself -- running a successful surf board company aptly named "LaLa."

Pretty tacky comment. Couldn't he have waited until AFTER the funeral before he goes on about the BUSINESS? Revolting.

Wow! Wikipedia and IMDB state Jack LaLanne's son Jon died in a car wreck in the '70s. I guess they really got that wrong...

Tell that guy to get a hair cut. Geez, he looks like a homeless guy. Pretty soon we'll all be chicks.
I grew up with Jack and I will miss him. What a wonderful American he was.

Before we start nominating Jack for sainthood please remember that he was arrested twice for drunk driving. His accomplishments speak for themselves but so do his shortcomings.

Wow, it would be nice if his son waited for his dad's body got cold before he starts making pronouncements about milking the business end.

Jack LaLanne was an idiot and a homophobe and I'm hoping that there is a special place in hell for him. Kiss my A** JACK!!!
