Early Life

John Fitzgerald Kennedy Jr. was born in Washington, D.C. on November 25, 1960. Kennedy, the first child born to a president-elect, was the second child of John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy (later Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis).

After President John F. Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963, little “John-John” won America’s hearts when, as a small child, he bravely saluted his father’s casket. With looks inherited from his attractive parents, Kennedy spent his entire life in the media spotlight as one of American journalists’ favorite subjects, despite strict protection from his mother.

‘George’ Magazine Publisher

Kennedy worked as an assistant district attorney in New York City after briefly considering a career in acting and graduating from Brown University and New York University Law School. He then left the legal profession to pursue a career in journalism, launching the successful, hip political magazine George in 1995.

Despite the fact that he could have had a political career, he chose to forge his own path in the world. He did, however, leave the door open for a future run for office. Although he was known for his adventurous nature, he made an effort to distance himself from the more reckless antics and self-destructive impulses of some of the other men in the Kennedy clan.

Marriage to Carolyn Bessette

People magazine named Kennedy the “Sexiest Man Alive” in 1988, and he had been linked to a number of Hollywood celebrities, including Madonna, Julia Roberts, and Sarah Jessica Parker. He married longtime girlfriend Carolyn Bessette in September 1996. The two shared a loft apartment in New York City’s TriBeCa neighborhood, where Kennedy was frequently seen rollerblading and biking through the streets.

Tragic Death

Kennedy, Bessette-Kennedy, and her sister, Lauren Bessette, were flying to Martha’s Vineyard on a single-engine private plane piloted by Kennedy, en route to a cousin’s wedding in Hyannisport, Massachusetts, on July 16, 1999. When their plane failed to arrive on time, massive search parties were dispatched to locate it. The search continued for several days, initially with no success.

The wreckage’s luggage and debris washed up on the Gay Head section of Martha’s Vineyard, and the three passengers were eventually presumed dead. Americans across the country mourned the death of the beloved son of one of the country’s most admired families, and they shared their sorrow in the tragedies that seem to haunt them.

The bodies of Kennedy, his wife, and his sister-in-law were discovered on July 21. The Kennedy and Bessette families planned to bury all three at sea. President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton attended a private mass for Kennedy and his wife at the Church of St. Thomas More on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, where his mother worshiped.

Kennedy is survived by his uncle, Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy, his sister, Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg, and several cousins. Kennedy’s George magazine ceased publication in early 2001 due to a lack of advertising support (despite growing circulation).
