Jack Schlossberg is practically his late uncle, John F. Kennedy Jr.’s twin! There’s far more to Jack than his dashing good looks, though.
1. Jack Schlossberg, 26, reportedly has a crush on Kendall Jenner.DuringKim Kardashian‘s cover story interview for the May issue ofVoguemagazine, the article’s authorJonathan Van Meterwrote, “At one point, Kim is holding court in a sitting area just outside her bedroom. Someone from the crew mentions that the very handsome young John Bouvier Kennedy Schlossberg, son of Caroline, reportedly has a crush on her half-sister Kendall, and Kim’s eyes twinkle at the prospect of colluding over some dynastic matchmaking.”
We can understand why — Jack is his uncle’s look-alike. Jack is the spitting image of his late uncle,John F. Kennedy, Jr. It’s to the point that it’s uncanny. Jack is the youngest son ofCaroline Kennedy, and the latePresident KennedyandJackie Onassis‘s only grandson. JFK Jr. died in 1999, when he was just 38 years old, and Jack was six. Seriously, though, the hair, eyes and jawline make them practically identical. Just check out, in the photo above, what John Jr. looked like when he was Jack’s age. Crazier hair, but total twins otherwise!
2. He’s lived in Japan for years. Jack’s following in his mother’s footsteps by entering public service after graduating from Yale in 2015 with a degree in Japanese history. Caroline was the US Ambassador to Japan during theObamaadministration, and Jack lived overseas in Japan with her. In his speech as hostof the JFK Profile In Courage Awards in 2017, Jack spoke about his experience:
“I learned a lot about Japan. But the most important thing I learned was about my own country,” Jack said. “It was something I had been told all my life but never fully grasped. I saw how people around the world see America: a beacon of opportunity, stability and strength in a world of uncertainty. America’s historic role has been just that. America, as President Kennedy once described it ‘has always been a lantern in the dark for those who love freedom but are persecuted, in misery, or in need.’”
3. He’s a political writer.Another similarity between Jack and his uncle: political writing. John Jr. was the publisher ofGeorge, a now-defunct political magazine out of Washington, DC. Jack writes about politics,with bylines in theWashington Post,Time, andPolitico. His sister,Tatiana Schlossberg, 27, is a reporter forThe New York Times.
4. He founded a non-profit in 8th grade.Well, now we feel inadequate. Jack’s a brilliant go-getter who co-founded the non-profit RelightNY while he was still in middle school. The organization, founded in 2007, gives energy-efficient light bulbs to low-income families around NYC and promotes environmental awareness. Wow!
5. He’s a volunteer EMT.As if he couldn’t get cuter, Jack is very into volunteering. He’s actually a volunteer EMT in NYC. There’s a chance if you’re in an emergency, Jack will come to help!
