Jacqueline Lee “Jackie” Bouvier Kennedy; (July 28, 1929 – May 19, 1994)
Jacqueline was the wife of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, and First Lady of the United States during his presidency from 1961 until his assassination in 1963. Together they had three children, John Kennedy junior, Patrick Kennedy and Caroline Kennedy. Tragically Patrick died in infancy.
Five years later she married Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis; they remained married until his death in 1975. For the final two decades of her life, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis had a career as a book editor. She is remembered for her contributions to the arts and preservation of historic architecture, her style, elegance, and grace. A fashion icon, her famous pink Chanel suit has become a symbol of her husband’s assassination and one of the lasting images of the 1960s. A book containing the transcripts of interviews with Kennedy from 1964, accompanied by eight compact discs containing the audio from the interview, was released in September 2011.
