As of 2013, Jack is the only living male descendant of his maternal grandfather, John Fitzgerald Kennedy (1917-1963), who was the 35th President of the United States (1961-1963). Jack’s uncle, his mother’s brother, was John F. Kennedy, Jr. His great-uncles (his maternal grandfather’s brothers) were politicians Robert F. Kennedy and Ted Kennedy. He has two sisters.

Jack’s first cousin, once removed, is journalist Maria Shriver, and Jack’s second cousins are author Katherine Schwarzenegger and actor, model, and entrepreneur Patrick Schwarzenegger.

Jack’s father is Ashkenazi Jewish (from a family from Russia). Jack’s mother has Irish, smaller amounts (to varying degrees) of English, French, German, and Scottish, and remote Dutch, ancestry. Jack was raised in his mother’s Catholic faith, though Jack’s family also celebrates Jewish holidays.

Jack’s paternal grandfather was Alfred Irving Schlossberg (the son of Yehuda “Edwin” Schlossberg and Khasha “Kate”/”Katie” Liba Kierstein/Kirstein). Alfred was born in Virginia, to Russian Jewish parents. Alfred was president of the Park East Synagogue, an Orthodox synagogue on New York’s Upper East Side. Yehuda was the son of David Schlossberg and Anna Land. Khasha was the daughter of Abraham Eber Kirstein and Mary Yetta Mann.

Jack’s paternal grandmother was Mae/May Hirsch (the daughter of Abraham Hirsch and Celia Horovitz). Mae was born in New York, to Russian Jewish parents.

Jack’s maternal grandfather was President John Fitzgerald Kennedy (the son of Joseph Patrick Kennedy and Rose Elizabeth Fitzgerald). Joseph and Rose were both of Irish descent, and Jack’s grandfather also had remote Scottish roots. Jack’s great-grandfather Joseph was a businessperson, investor, and politician, who was the son of P. J. Kennedy, Patrick Joseph Kennedy, a businessperson and politician, and of Mary Augusta Hickey. Jack’s great-grandmother Rose was a philanthropist and socialite, who was the daughter of John Francis Fitzgerald and Mary Josephine “Josie” Hannon. Jack’s great-great-grandfather John Fitzgerald was a politician, who served as Mayor of Boston (from 1906 to 1908, and again from 1910 to 1914), and as a Member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Massachusetts (from 1895 to 1901, and in 1919).

Jack’s maternal grandmother was Jacqueline Lee Bouvier (the daughter of John Vernou Bouvier III and Janet Norton Lee). John Bouvier, a stockbroker and socialite, had Irish, French, English, German, and Scottish ancestry, and was the son of John Vernou Bouvier, Jr. and Maude Frances Sergeant, who was born in Massachusetts, to English parents. Janet was born in New York, of Irish descent, and was the daughter of James Thomas Aloysius Lee and Margaret A. Merritt.
