John F. Kennedy Jr.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy Jr. (November 25, 1960 – July 16, 1999), often referred to as John John or JFK Jr., was an American lawyer, journalist, and magazine publisher. He was the only surviving son of President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, and younger brother of Caroline Kennedy. His father was assassinated three days before his third birthday.

From his early childhood onwards, Kennedy was the subject of great media scrutiny, and he became a popular social figure of Manhattan. Trained as a lawyer, he worked as a New York City Assistant District Attorney for four years. In 1995, he launched George magazine, using his political and celebrity status to publicize it.

Kennedy died along with his wife Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy and her elder sister Lauren in the crash of a small plane he was piloting. Kennedy had intended to drop off Lauren at Martha's Vineyard before continuing to the wedding of his cousin Rory Kennedy in Hyannis Port.
