JFK Jr: 20th Death Anniversary




It has been 20 years since JFK Jr (the son of President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy), his wife Carolyn Bessette (who was a publicist for Calvin Klein), and his sister-in-law Lauren Bessette (who was a banker) all tragically died when their plane crashed into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Martha's Vineyard. Kennedy was piloting the plane as the three were on their way to attend the wedding of his cousin Rory Kennedy (the 11th child of Robert F. Kennedy and Ethel Skakel Kennedy).

Commemorating the anniversary of this tragedy, a new book on JFK Jr was released earlier this month called "America's Reluctant Prince: The Life of John F. Kennedy Jr" by Stephen Gillon. It should be noted that Gillon was actually a friend of JFK Jr and first met him when Kennedy enrolled in one of his classes at Brown University. A documentary on A&E titled "Biography: JFK Jr. The Final Year" which is based on Gillon's book, will premiere tonight at 9 p.m. ET:
