John F. Kennedy Sr. and his wife, former First Lady Jackie Kennedy, had four children together, and one of them was Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg — who was still alive today and aged 63 in 2021.

Caroline and her husband Edwin Schlossberg ended up giving the former President and his wife three grandchildren. Their children are daughters Rose and Tatiana and son John "Jack" Bouvier Kennedy Schlossberg.

JOHN "JACK'S" BACKGROUND

John is the former 35th President of the US's only grandson. When his uncle, John F. Kennedy, Jr., passed away in 1999, little John was only six years old and has followed in his family's footsteps by entering into public service.

The 28-year-old made big moves when he was still in middle school, aged 14, by founding the RelightNY non-profit. The organization promotes environmental awareness and gives energy-efficient light bulbs to low-income families in New York.

John studied at Manhattan's Upper West Side's Collegiate School. He then went to Yale University before attending his late grandfather's alma mater Harvard University where he pursued an M.B.A. and a J.D.

LIVING OVERSEAS

While his mother lived in Japan as the US Ambassador, John got to stay with her. In 2017, during his speech as host of the JFK Profile In Courage Awards, he said he'd learned a lot about the country.

However, another thing he learned was how people worldwide saw the US. He said outsiders saw the US as a beacon of stability, opportunity, and strength in a world that was filled with uncertainty.

BEING LOW-KEY & GARNISHING ATTENTION

In general, John has remained out of the spotlight unless he's appearing at his mother's side. At the 2020 Democratic National Convention, he served as one of the speakers alongside his mother.

His 50 seconds long speech at the event left Twitter with a meltdown! The Harvard Law School student spoke about the themes mentioned in his grandfather's 1960 speech – unity, courage, patriotism.

People flooded Twitter as they gushed over how handsome John was and how much he looked like his late uncle. They also couldn't get over that healthy head of hair that was a known Kennedy trademark!

THE STORY TOLD BY JOHN'S INSTAGRAM

In 2017, People magazine had a closer look at John's life when he was just 24 by popping onto his Instagram account. They discovered that he had an obsession with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

The publication also found out he sported an impressive set of abs and was the spitting image of his late uncle. He's also quite athletic, goes canoeing, speaks Japanese, and has pretty good dance moves.

One thing he hasn't adequately addressed is his future plans. John previously confessed that he was studying and still finding his way, unlike his older sisters, who both seem to have found their places in the world.

In August 2020s The New York Post article, it was revealed that Rose, then-32, was working as an actress and comedian. Tatiana, then-30, was an environmental writer and married medical resident George Moran.

At one point, John worked for the US Department of State. He also had the pleasure of working for Suntory Holdings Limited - a Japanese distilling, brewing, and beverage company.

HIS EX-GIRLFRIEND

In 2021, John was still an eligible bachelor, but he seemed to be dating someone before that. According to Distractify, since 2017, the young man was linked to Krissy Jones - a yoga teacher and studio owner.

It appeared the pair were happy together until rumors surfaced that John had cheated on her. The duo made their relationship public in 2019, but a source close to Jones said the couple had separated later that year.

KENNEDY'S CRUSH ON A JENNER

The same year John and Jones went their separate ways, Kim Kardashian West shared some juicy news about the former. In her Vogue cover story, she revealed that John had "a crush" on her half-sister, Kendall Jenner.

It appears the young Kennedy hasn't been romantically and publicly linked to anyone else. In the past, he was rumored to be dating Cazzie David - comedian and "Seinfeld" co-creator Larry David's daughter.

STARRING ON "BLUE BLOODS"

In May 2018, Entertainment Weekly noted how something special happened on the season 8 finale of "Blue Bloods." There was a brief scene where Will Estes' character Jamie and Vanessa Ray's Eddie spoke to a police officer.

That officer happened to be a 25-year-old John in his acting debut. It's good to note that it wasn't his only, or last, television appearance as his first one was on the Today show alongside his mother on May 16, 2018.

John's character in the crime drama series was Officer Jack Hammer. He was so proud of his role that he shared images and later video footage of his part prior to the episode's premiere.

John appeared in police costume posing next to his mother, Estes, Ray, and "Blue Bloods" executive producer Kevin Wade. He's also had appearances on "Global Agenda" and "60 Minutes."

LIVING LAVISH

During the last days of summer this year, Daily Mail got footage of John and Rose at the family's Martha's Vineyard estate. They were photographed while swimming at Massachusetts' Kennedy Red Gate Farm.

Jackie Kennedy, the pair's grandmother, was the original Red Gate Farm owner. The estate was built in 1979 after the death of Aristotle Onassis, and the architect who created it was Hugh Newell Jacobsen.

In 2019, Jacobsen informed The Georgetown Dish that Jackie had wanted the home to look like Nantucket. The style meant it had to be designed with 19th-century architecture but a modern look.

The end result included the main house that measured 3,000 square feet. The estate's gardens were designed by Bunny Mellon, a landscape designer who also helped create the White House's Rose Garden.
