Wednesday Morning Man: Jack Schlossberg!
President John F. Kennedy’s only grandson, Jack Schlossberg, spoke at the Democratic National Convention last night alongside his mother, Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg.
“Times have changed, but the themes of my grandfather’s speech — courage, unity, and patriotism — are as important today as they were in 1960,” Schlossberg said in his first speaking role at a political convention. “Once again, we need a leader who believes America’s best days are yet to come. We need Joe Biden.”
Schlossberg, 27, graduated from Yale University in 2015 and entered Harvard Law School in the fall of 2017 and Harvard Business School in the fall of 2018. He is in the joint degree program of J.D. and M.B.A.
Although it was his first time speaking at a convention, he has become more and more involved over the years in the family’s philanthropic and humanitarian work. In May, he appeared with his mother to announce that the 2020 Profile in Courage Award would be focused on local frontline workers facing the novel coronavirus pandemic.
On May 11, 2018, Schlossberg made his acting debut as Officer Jack Hammer on the eighth-season finale of the television show Blue Bloods. But that appears to be the handsome young man’s only acting role.
Schlossberg has two older sisters, Rose and Tatiana.
