Born and raised in Southampton, New York on July 28, 1929, Jacqueline Lee Bouvier admired her parents, especially her mother. John and Janet Bouvier, her parents, came from successful backgrounds; John a wealthy stockbroker from Wall Street and Janet Bouvier a proficient equestrian.

During her childhood, Jacqueline enjoyed spending her time riding on horses and reading classic child favorites. At age 10, her parents divorced, causing her to remain quiet and private. She distracted herself by taking ballet lessons and learning French.

After finishing her education, Jacqueline pursued a career as a photographer for the Washington Times-Herald newspaper. She covered many historical events including Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation and the inauguration Dwight D. Eisenhower. While performing many different photo shoots around the world, Jacqueline met her future husband, John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

The pair married on September 12, 1953 in Newport, Rhode Island, and four years later, their first child, Caroline came into their lives. In that same year, John published a book called Profiles in Courage, a book about different senators United States’ senators who fought for their beliefs.

On January 20, 1961, Jacqueline took the position as First Lady of the United States when her husband took office as the 35th president. For the entirety of the time that she lived in the White House, she worked hard to maintain her new role. She made new additions to America’s most famous residence and showed Americans around the country the history of the House through a televised tour on CBS.

A few years later in 1963, tragedy struck her life. After giving birth to her third child named Patrick Bouvier Kennedy, he suffered from a lung illness and died two days later after his birth.

On November 22, 1963, she suffered another tragedy. While in Dallas with her husband campaigning, an assassin fired at the vehicle that they rode in, and unfortunately, her husband, the President, died due to his wounds.

For her life’s final years, Jacqueline worked as a senior editor in a publishing company in New York City. Now she lays to rest in the Arlington National Cemetery in Washington D.C next to her husband, former President John F. Kennedy.
