Jackie O Biography
- Jacqueline "Jackie" Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis (pronounced Â /Ã‹ÂŒÃ‹ÂˆdÃŠÂ’ÃƒÂ¦kliÃ‹Ân Ã‹ÂˆliÃ‹Â Ã‹ÂˆbuÃ‹ÂvieÃ‰Âª Ã‹ÂˆkÃ‰Â›nÃ‰Â¨di oÃŠÂŠÃ‹ÂˆnÃƒÂ¦sÃ‰Â¨s/; July 28, 1929Â Ã¢Â€Â“ May 19, 1994) 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. 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 was released in September 2011. Jacqueline Lee Bouvier was born in Southampton, New York, to Wall Street stock broker John Vernou Bouvier III (also known as 'Black Jack Bouvier') and Janet Norton Lee. Jacqueline's younger sister Caroline LeeÃ¢Â€Â”later known as LeeÃ¢Â€Â”was born in 1933. The Bouviers divorced in 1940. Janet Bouvier later married Standard Oil heir Hugh D. Auchincloss, Jr. in 1942, and had two more children: Janet and James Auchincloss.
