Farewell to the last of this iconic family.
Jean Kennedy Smith has died at 92.
She was the sole survivor. Now, all 11 members are gone.
Jean was the 8th of 9, born in 1928.
Such triumphs, so many tragedies, experienced & endured by a single American family which captured the attention, the imagination, and the hearts, of millions of Americans. Their indelible, consequential, impact on 20th Century U.S. history is truly astounding.
Rest In Peace, Jean.

Look over those who will now carry the Kennedy Legacy and protect them. My thoughts and prayers are with your family today and always.

My aunt, Ambassador Jean Kennedy Smith passed away in her sleep last night. She was a mighty woman, founder of Very Special Arts, and ambassador to Ireland who helped bring about the peace process. She was my mother’s college roommate and introduced my parents, whose 70th wedding anniversary was June 17th. She left us with many laughs. Rest In Peace, Aunt Jean.

RIP Jean Kennedy Smith (age 92), the last surviving sibling of JFK. Jean Kennedy Smith was the founder of VSA Arts, which focuses on artists with disabilities. We met her in Washington DC when Kevin won an emerging artist award from VSA Arts.
