President of the United States John Fitzgerald “Jack” Kennedy (1917-1963) was born in Brookline, Massachusetts, the son of Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr., and Rose Fitzgerald. After graduating from Harvard College in 1940, Kennedy joined the U.S. Navy and commanded a patrol torpedo boat, PT-109 during World War II. In 1945, he was honorably discharged with numerous decorations, including the Purple Heart as well as a Navy and Marines Corps Medal for his actions during a collision between PT-109 and a Japanese vessel in 1943. Kennedy’s political career began with his 1946 election to the U. S. House of Representatives, during which he served for six years. After defeating Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. for a U.S. Senate seat in 1952, Kennedy married Jacqueline Bouvier a year later.

In 1961, Kennedy became the 35th President, defeating Richard Nixon in a close presidential election. From 1961 to 1963, Kennedy’s presidency was marked by foreign affairs, including the Bay of Pigs Invasion, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the start of the Vietnam War. President Kennedy was assassinated during a political trip in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963. He was scheduled to give a speech to the Texas State Democratic Committee in Austin later that day.
