Profile Bio Text
Jacqueline Lee Bouvier was born on July 28 1929 to Janet Norton Lee and John V. Bouvier, who was called "Black" Jack Bouvier. She had a sister Caroline Lee (aka Lee Radziwill), born four years after her. She lived in posh penthouse apartments in New York City until her parents divorced when she was about six. Several years later her mother married Hugh D. Auchincloss and Jackie became the sister of two brothers and a sister from Hugh`s previous marriages, and soon three was another brother and sister as a result of the new marriage.
Jackie attended boarding schools and then went off to Vassar. After two years, though, she got tired of it and spent her junior year studying at the Sorbonne in Paris. When she got back to the US she did not want to go back to Vassar, so she enrolled in George Washington University in Washington, DC, graduating in 1951. She took a job at the CIA and in January of 1952 went to work at a Washington newspaper, where she was a photographer. During an assignment she met Senator John F. Kennedy . They were married on September 12, 1953. Their first child, who lived, was Caroline Kennedy, born November 27, 1957.
In 1961 John Kennedy became the 35th President of the US, but before he became President Jackie had a second child, John Kennedy Jr., who was born on November 25, 1960. Jackie spent the White House years doing her best to save the historical landmarks around Washington. In August of 1963 she went into labor with their third child who they named Patrick Bouvier Kennedy, but sadly he died shortly after his birth. Jackie was not supposed to go to Texas with her husband, but with the death of Patrick she decided to go, and she was sitting next to him in the open-air limousine on November 22, 1963, when he was assassinated.
In 1968 her brother-in-law, Robert F. Kennedy, was also assassinated, and the combination of the death of her son and the murders of her husband and brother-in-law proved to be too much for her, and she came to the conclusion that she could not live in the US any more. On October 20, 1968, she was married to Greek shipping magnate, Aristotle Onassis. After he died in the mid-`70s she returned to New York and became a book editor. She dedicated the last 20 years of her life to her children, her grandchildren and her friend Maurice Templeton. In the early 1990s she found out she had non-Hodgkin`s lymphoma. She died from that on May 19, 1994.
