The 25-year-old grandson of JFK, John Schlossberg, starred as Officer Jack Hammer in the hit crime-drama show.


Saying it was a dream come true for him, Schlossberg made his debut on Blue Bloods in May 2018.

Posting a group shot and another solo picture on Instagram, JFK’s grandson, shared the big news to his followers that he was going to make an appearance on the show’s season 8 finale.

On the group photo, he can be seen with his mother, Caroline Bouvier Kennedy, Blue Bloods cast members Will Estes and Vanessa Ray, and the show’s executive producer, Kevin Wade.

'I don’t make the rules; I just pretend to enforce them,’ he wrote on the caption and added, ‘Best show in the entire world,’ after inviting fans to watch him. Read more about what happened on the season finale on our Twitter page. Follow us at AmoMama USA.


Schlossberg is shared by Caroline and Edwin Schlossberg. He is the sole grandson of John F. Kennedy, who was the 35th President of the United States.

Many have taken notice of the similarities between Schlossberg and his grandfather, which led to people asking whether he plans to enter politics or not.

At present, according to Entertainment Tonight, the 25-year-old has been taking up law at Harvard. During his college years, he took up a degree in history and graduated from Yale University.

Perhaps it has become innate to the members of the Kennedy clan to take up law after college.


Schlossberg acknowledges the value of their family’s legacy and has always been grateful. Although it may not seem that he is set to take on his grandfather’s path, he has been showing interest towards it.

In May 2017, in a Today show interview with his mother, who was a US ambassador to Japan, Schlossberg was asked if he was considering entering the world of politics.

He said, “I’m inspired by my family’s legacy of public service. It’s something I’m very proud of. Stay tuned. I don’t know what I’m going to do.”


The young man has engaged in some humanitarian causes. In fact, when he was only 14 years old, he already co-founded ReLightNY.

The organization aimed to give energy-efficient light bulbs to be distributed to low-income housing developments.Since then, Schlossberg has been no stranger to philanthropic works.

According to People, he went to Japan with Caroline, where the two of them visited several orphanages in Fukushima.

Since he is still young, Schlossberg has a lot to figure out. The public will have to wait and see whether he does pursue a career as a politician or not.


From the looks of it, he may just be testing the waters in the acting industry and is perhaps not ready yet to take on more serious roles such as following his grandfather’s footsteps.

JFK was the kind of president who donated his presidential and legislative salaries to different charities. He passed away on November 22, 1963, when he was shot in the middle of his presidential motorcade in Dallas, Texas.

Thirty minutes after the attack, medical officials pronounced him dead. Up until now, JFK’s killer remains unknown.
