Jack Kennedy Schlossberg: Heir to Camelot
At 20, JFK's Only Grandson Is 'Just Jack' to Yale Pals, but He's Stepping Up to Carry on the Kennedy Legacy
It was a very public - and solo - debut for the youngest child of the very private Caroline Kennedy, who was half a world away, setting up shop as U.S. ambassador to Japan. And Schlossberg nailed it with a jaunty ease reminiscent of his uncle John F. Kennedy Jr., whom he admires. "Jack is very interested in John Jr.'s life," says a family friend, "and loves being compared to him." Beyond the lustrous hair and heartthrob brown eyes, the two namesakes of the storied Kennedy family share a grace and humor, say those who know Schlossberg. At Yale the New York City native performs comedy improv in the exaggerated Boston accent of the rest of his clan and writes boyishly witty blog posts (topics include "How to Ask Out Your TA" and "Crush of the Week"). "He's just Jack," says a college friend. "He's proud of his family, but he doesn't use that in any way."
Already the call to service embedded in his genes has him working evenings to get certified as an EMT and volunteering for a local public-safety committee. But the verdict's out on his feelings about Washington. This fall he blogged that the federal shutdown was putting the "over" in government, adding with sardonic cheek: "Proud of you guys in DC."
