John Bouvier Kennedy Schlossberg (born January 19, 1993), known as "Jack",[1] is a Yale University student and the grandson of President John Fitzgerald "Jack" Kennedy (1917—1963).

Schlossberg was born on January 19, 1993, in New York City to attorney Caroline Bouvier Kennedy (born 1957) and designer Edwin Arthur "Ed" Schlossberg (born 1945). He has two older sisters, Rose Kennedy Schlossberg (born 1988) and Tatiana Celia Schlossberg (born 1990). Schlossberg is the only grandson of President Kennedy and Jacqueline Lee "Jackie" Bouvier (1929—1994). His father is Jewish and his mother is Catholic. Jack and his sisters grew up Catholic,[2] and also keep up with Jewish traditions and holidays.[3]

Like his sister Tatiana, Schlossberg is a student at Yale University. At Yale, he is training to become an EMT (Emergency medical technician), and is a contributor to the Yale Daily News and The Yale Herald.[4] Schlossberg became the only surviving male descendant of the former president when his uncle John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Jr. (1960—1999), known as "John-John", died childless in a plane crash on July 16, 1999.[5] In eighth grade, Schlossberg co-founded ReLight New York which raised more than $100,000 to install compact fluorescent lights in low-income housing developments.[6] In September 2012, he announced his intention to pursue a career in politics after college graduation.[7]
