John F. Kennedy Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

John Fitzgerlad Kennedy, born on the 29th of May, 1917, was an American politician who became the 35th President of the United States of America in 1961.

So how much is Kennedy’s net worth? As of early 2016 it was reported to be $100 million, gained mostly from his long career as a politician, and from his family’s estate.

John F. Kennedy Net Worth $100 Million

Born in Brookline, Massachusetts, Kennedy was the son of Joseph and Rose, the second of four children. The family later moved to New York, where Kennedy pursued higher education. He studied in The Chaote School and later enrolled at Princeton University, but after one semester, he moved to Harvard and graduated in 1936 with a degree in International Affairs.

Because of the Second World War, Kennedy joined the military but was placed in the US navy due to health problems. He became Lieutenant and captain of a PT boat and even earned a Navy and Marine Corps Medal and a Purple Heart during his service for saving the lives of his team in a shipwreck. After his time in the Navy, in 1945 he worked for the Hearst Newspaper as a special correspondent.

Kennedy’s political career started when his brother Joseph died while serving in the Military. Their father had dreamt of Joseph becoming the President someday, so Kennedy took it as a responsibility and in 1946 ventured into the world of politics, winning a seat in the US House of Representatives. Not challenged enough, after six years he decided to move up the ladder and ran for Senate. During his years as a Senator, he wrote a book entitled “Profile of Courage”, a biography of various Senators that he admired, and which earned him a Pulitzer Prize. His time serving as a Congressman and Senator increased his national exposure, and also helped in raising his personal net worth.

Finally in 1960, he was elected the 35th President of the USA, and the second youngest President in history at the age of 43. During his term, he created the Peace Corps and the Alliance for Progress, programs that provided help to the neighbouring countries of the United States. Though he experienced downs like the attempted Bay of Pigs Invasion in Cuba, he countered it greater successes, such as the negotiation of the Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, and refusing the USSR in basing missiles on Cuba; increasing the minimum wage; helping with the developments in the “Space Race”; and avoiding an increase of American soldiers in Vietnam.

Although Kennedy was able to provide improvements for the country, unfortunately his term in the Presidency and his life was cut short on 22 November 1963. While on an open limousine tour around Dallas, the President was shot and died half an hour later. The suspect was believed to be Lee Harvey Oswald, but he was also killed even before he faced trial. Even today, some people still believe that Oswald was not the only person involved in the assassination, and that there was a conspiracy behind it. The President died at the age of 46.

In terms of his personal life, Kennedy married Jacqueline Bouvier in 1953, and together they have four children. Rumours of his infidelity abounded, but he is mostly remembered for his youthful enthusiasm in whatever he did, and for the achievements during his presidency mentined above.

Looks like we don't have John Fitzgerald Kennedy salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1 Mentioned in the song "Killer Queen" by Queen.
2 His older sister, 'Rosemary Kennedy' (qv, was born with learning deficits and had to be placed in alternative school. This shamed their father, Joseph P. Kennedy, who wanted all of his Kennedy children to be perfect in every way. In 1941 he forced Rosemary to undergo a lobotomy that went devastatingly wrong, causing her to become mentally incapacitated for the rest of her life.
3 His younger sister, Kathleen "Kick" Kennedy, married English politician and soldier William Cavendish, Marquess of Hartington, in the spring of 1944. This angered father Joseph P. Kennedy, who hated the idea of his Irish-American daughter marrying a British man.
4 His great-grandfather, Patrick Kennedy, was a very poor Irish immigrant who emigrated to America in the fall of 1848. He fell sick from cholera and died in his Boston home on November 22, 1858, exactly 105 years to the day of JFK's assassination.
5 The Kennedy assassination (Nov. 22, 1963) occurred on a Friday. The 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination (Nov. 22, 2013) also fell on a Friday.
6 After the parade through Dallas, Kennedy was scheduled to attend a Texas barbecue and then spend the night at Vice President Lyndon Johnson's ranch. Johnson had organized a whip-cracking and sheep-herding demonstration for Kennedy's entertainment.
7 Was the first US President to be born in the 20th century.
8 Was the first Irish-American President.
9 Only US President to predecease both his parents: (father) Joseph P. Kennedy (d. 18 November 1969); (mother) Rose Kennedy (d. 22 January 1995).
10 Mentioned in the song "We Didn't Start the Fire" by Billy Joel.
11 His 1953 marriage to Jacqueline Kennedy (then Jacqueline Bouvier) was celebrated at St. Mary's Church in Newport, RI, where more than 700 guests were in attendance. The couple later went to Hammersmith Farm overlooking Narragansett Bay (Rhode Island Sound), where a reception for 900 guests was lavishly catered. Best man at the wedding was Kennedy's brother Robert F. Kennedy. Among the ushers were Ted Kennedy, George A. Smathers and Sargent Shriver. Jacqueline's matron-of-honor was sister Lee Bouvier (aka Lee Radziwill).
12 When Kennedy visited Ireland in late June 1963, he became the first sitting U.S. President to set foot on Irish soil.
13 Journalist Jeff Greenfield (who later became a speech writer for Robert F. Kennedy) described Jack as "the guy who looked like your cool older brother".
14 During his entire political career, he never once lost a single election.
15 Despite their later close bond, Jack and brother Robert F. Kennedy were not close growing up. This is due, in part, to the eight-year age difference between the men. It was not until Jack, during his third term as a Massachusetts congressman, took a seven-week trip through the Far East and parts of the Middle East, and took Bobby (who had just graduated from Law School) with him that they grew closer. During the trip the duo discovered their mutual similarities and forged the deep bond that would last until Jack's death. Jack appointed Bobby his campaign manager in 1952 and in 1960. Jack was reportedly so close to Bobby that while he was President he would often ask "Where's Bobby?" during important meetings, and would finally relax when Bobby showed up. For his part, Bobby's devout loyalty to Jack was often ridiculed and parodied by the media. Bobby, loving to poke fun at himself, often joked, "If I find the guy who says I'm too ruthless, I'll kill him".
16 Considered his younger brother Robert F. Kennedy to be his top advisor and closest friend. Bobby similarly felt the same way about Jack and was "utterly devastated" by Jack's death in 1963. Friends and family said that, after his brother's death, Bobby was never the same man.
17 Uncle of Anthony Radziwill and Tina Radziwill.
18 The Oscar-winning "High Hopes" (from A Hole in the Head (1959)) was Kennedy's official presidential campaign song.
19 Mentioned in the song "Hey Manhattan!" by Prefab Sprout.
20 PT 109--the boat that he commanded during World War II--was mentioned on more than one occasion on the television series, McHale's Navy (1962), Kennedy is referred to, but he is never mentioned by name. On at least one episode, however, PT 109 is seen backing out of the dock next to the one where McHale's PT boat is, although no one can be seen on it.
21 When he died in 1963 he left an estate estimated at $10 million, all of which derives from trust funds established by his father, Joseph P. Kennedy.
22 The street Rue John-F-Kennedy is named in downtown Montreal, Quebec, Canada, is named in his honor.
23 Portrait appears on the US half-dollar coin.
24 His sister Jean Kennedy Smith was US ambassador to Ireland (June 1993 - September 1998).
25 He was a big fan of the Boston Red Sox baseball team. This was something instilled in him by his grandfather, Boston mayor John Francis Fitzgerald (aka "Honey Fitz"), who was himself a member of The Royal Rooters, a turn-of-the-century Boson Red Sox fan club.
26 Fourth US president to be assassinated (unsuccessful attempts had been made on Presidents Andrew Jackson and Harry S. Truman, and on President-elect Franklin D. Roosevelt) and the seventh president to die in office. Ironically, all presidents to have died in office since the first (William Henry Harrison in 1841) were elected 20 years apart: Harrison in 1840, Abraham Lincoln in 1860, James Garfield in 1880, William McKinley in 1900, Warren G. Harding in 1920, Roosevelt in 1940 and Kennedy in 1960. Ironically, Kennedy and his retinue had been aware of this "20-year curse" on the Presidency. Ronald Reagan (elected 1980) was the victim of an assassin's bullet in 1981, but he survived and broke the 120-year curse that had plagued the US Presidency.
27 Was a Fourth-Degree member of the Knights of Columbus, belonging to both the Bunker Hill No. 62 and the Bishop Cheverus General Assembly.
28 Encouraged Kirk Douglas to make the anti-nuclear movie Seven Days in May (1964).
29 Was an avid reader, and at one point expressed his fondness for the James Bond novels of Ian Fleming. He said that a particular favorite was "From Russia with Love". For this reason, the producers of the Bond series made From Russia with Love (1963) the second Bond film.
30 Both he and his brother Robert F. Kennedy have been portrayed by Martin Sheen.
31 Uncle of Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, Joseph Kennedy and Congressman Patrick Kennedy.
32 Grandson of Congressman John F. Fitzgerald.
33 Was portrayed by Stephen Collins in A Woman Named Jackie (1991) and Martin Donovan in RFK (2002).
34 Although privately he suffered from numerous illnesses and ailments, he insisted on a public image of rugged fitness and masculinity. Following his infamous debate against Richard Nixon, he spent a week in Florida tanning and working out on the beach. He was often photographed playing football with younger brother Robert F. Kennedy, working out and playing various sports with his family. In one famous photograph, he is pictured wearing a leather jacket, jeans and sunglasses, casually leaning against a wall. In reality, he was so exhausted from getting over a virus and the job, that he literally fell asleep standing up.
35 He had numerous bizarre distant connections with the 16th US president, Abraham Lincoln.
36 Brother-in-law of Lee Radziwill
37 "Black Jack", the riderless horse that served at Kennedy's funeral, also participated in the funeral ceremonies of Presidents Herbert Hoover and Lyndon Johnson and Gen. Douglas MacArthur. Coincidentally, "Black Jack" was also the nickname of Jacqueline Kennedy's father.
38 The second of only two US presidents to be entombed in Arlington National Cemetery, the first being William Howard Taft
39 Was portrayed by Martin Sheen in the miniseries Kennedy (1983).
40 In the course of his famous 1963 speech near the Berlin Wall, Kennedy had meant to say, "Ich bin Berliner" (I am a Berliner). Since nationalities in German are not preceded by articles, Kennedy actually said, "Ich bin ein Berliner" (I am one with the people of Berlin). The urban legend that it translates into "I am a jelly donut" is a myth, since the pastry is known in Germany as "pfannkuchen" (pan cake).
41 The Lincoln Continental convertible limousine (plate: GG 300) in which he and then Texas governor John Connally and wife Nellie Connally were riding in on the day of Kennedy's assassination is on display in a museum in Dearborn, MI.
42 He, Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby all died in Parkland Hospital in Dallas, TX.
43 His assassination inspired journalist Hunter S. Thompson to create his famous phrase, "Fear and Loathing".
44 His funeral took place on the same day as that of Lee Harvey Oswald and Officer J.D. Tippit.
45 His favorite film was Spartacus (1960).
46 In stark contrast to his own poor physical health, his younger brother Robert F. Kennedy was a very strong and physically active man who enjoyed hiking and canoeing among other outdoor sports.
47 Was a natural speed reader. He could read about 2,500 wpm (10 times the average reading speed). He would read six newspapers from cover to cover while he had breakfast.
48 His Vice President, Texas congressman Lyndon Johnson, campaigned against him for the presidential spot in 1960, and Kennedy later chose him to be his Vice President because he needed Johnson to win over southern voters. John's brother, Robert F. Kennedy, disliked Johnson intensely and the feeling was mutual.
49 United States Senator (1953 - 1961).
50 Although he was the youngest person elected president, he was not the youngest person to become president. That was Theodore Roosevelt, who became president after William McKinley was shot.
51 Died November 22, 1963, the same day as C.S. Lewis and Aldous Huxley.
52 While in office, the family Secret Service code names were: Lancer (The President); Lace (Jacqueline Kennedy); Lyric (Caroline Kennedy); Lark (John Kennedy Jr.).
53 During his tenure at the White House, Kennedy, like Herbert Hoover before him, refused to accept a presidential salary.
54 During a stopover in Palm Beach, Florida, en route to Dallas, Texas on November 17, 1963, a private screening of Tom Jones (1963) was organized on behalf of the president. It was the last film he saw.
55 Time Magazine's "Man of the Year" (1961)
56 Pictured on the 13¢ US postage stamp in the original Prominent Americans series, issued 29 May 1967 (50th anniversary of his birth).
57 Pictured on a 5¢ US memorial postage stamp issued 29 May 1964 (birthday following assassination).
58 Uncle of Christopher Lawford
59 His father never called him Jack, he always called him Johnny.
60 Brother of Robert F. Kennedy, Ted Kennedy, Jean Kennedy Smith and Eunice Kennedy Shriver.
61 Son of Joseph P. Kennedy and Rose Kennedy.
62 He was the youngest man elected President, and the youngest to die.
63 Served in the United States Navy during World War II.
64 In 1955 he wrote "Profiles in Courage", which won the Pulitzer Prize in history in 1957.
65 Was named after his grandfather, John Fitzgerald, who was elected as Boston, Massachusetts' mayor in 1905.
66 He graduated from Harvard in 1940.
67 He created the Peace Corps.
68 Suffered from Addison's disease.
69 In 1940 he wrote the best-selling book "While England Slept", about some of the decisions which led to World War II.
70 Was elected to the House of Representatives in 1946 and to the United States Senate in 1952.
71 Graduated from the Choate School in Connecticut in 1935.
72 Daughter Caroline Kennedy, born 27 November 1957.
73 Appointed his brother, Robert F. Kennedy, as US Attorney General. After his appointment, Congress enacted laws to prevent immediate family members from serving in the President's cabinet.
74 Was instrumental in the creation of the space program, and in just 8 years (1961 - 1969), Americans sent a man to the moon.
75 His fourth child, Patrick Bouvier Kennedy, died from infant respiratory-distress syndrome two days after his birth in the summer of 1963.

#Quote
1 [1960] Once you say you're going to settle for second that's what happens to you in life, I find.
2 [3/62] I sometimes think we are too much impressed by the clamor of daily events. Newspaper headlines and the television screens give us a short view . . . Yet it is the profound tendencies of history, and not the passing excitements, that will shape our future.
3 [11/22/63, upon arriving in Dallas, TX] We're really in nut country now.
4 It is only after you wield the powers of the presidency that you get hated. [Wayne Morse], [Jimmy Hoffa], Al Hayes, etc., all hate me now merely because of one bill. Presidents are bound to be hated unless they are as bland as [Dwight D. Eisenhower].
5 [1962] Too often in the past we have thought of the artist as an idler and dilettante and of the lover of arts as somehow sissy or effete. We have done both an injustice. The life of the artist is, in relation to his work, stern and lonely. He has labored hard, often among deprivation, to perfect his skill. He has turned aside from quick success in order to strip his vision of everything secondary or cheapening. His working life is marked by intense application and intense discipline. As for the lover of arts, it is he who, by subjecting himself to the sometimes disturbing experience of art, sustains the artist - and seeks only the reward that his life will, in consequence, be the more fully lived.
6 [June 11, 1963] If an American, because his skin is dark, cannot eat lunch in a restaurant open to the public, if he cannot send his children to the best public school available, if he cannot vote for the public officials who will represent him, if, in short, he cannot enjoy the full and free life which all of us want, then who among us would be content to have the color of his skin changed and stand in his place? Who among us would then be content with the counsels of patience and delay?
7 [1960, on Richard Nixon] Sick, sick, sick.
8 I must say, in defense of our own country, if the United States had not emphasized the military since 1945, the shape of the globe would be very different than it is today. So that those who feel that we overemphasize it might consider the fate of freedom if we had not emphasized it.
9 Some people have their liberalism "made" by the time they reach their late 20s. I didn't. I was caught in crosscurrents and eddies. It was only later that I got into the stream of things.
10 [1962, to Theodore Sorensen] If we solve the Berlin problem without war, Cuba will look pretty small. And if there is a war, Cuba won't matter much, either.
11 [November 1961] This chimpanzee who is flying in space took off at 10:08. He reports that everything is perfect and working well.
12 [in 1960, to Benjamin C. Bradlee, on how he intended to announce the appointment of brother Robert F. Kennedy to the position of US Attorney General] Well, I think I'll open the door of the Georgetown house some morning about 2:00 A.M., look up and down the street, and if there's no one there, I'll whisper, "It's Bobby".
13 [1961] We are probably strong enough to prevent one nation from unleashing nuclear weapons on another. But we can't prevent infiltration, assassination, sabotage, bribery, any of the weapons of guerrilla warfare . . . One guerrilla can pin down 12 conventional soldiers, and we've got nothing equivalent.
14 [1960, joking with a supporter] Do you realize the responsibility I carry? I'm the only person between [Richard Nixon] and the White House.
15 [in the fall of 1960] I suppose if I win, my poon days are over.
16 [1962] If anybody is around to write after this, they are going to understand that we made every effort to find peace and every effort to give our adversary room to move. I am not going to push the Russians an inch beyond what is necessary.
17 [after the Bay of Pigs invasion] The advice of those who were brought in on the executive branch was unanimous, and the advice was wrong. And I was responsible.
18 The civil rights movement should thank God for [Eugene 'Bull' Connor]. He's helped it as much as Abraham Lincoln.
19 Our problems are manmade. Therefore, they can be solved by man. And man can be as big as he wants. No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings.
20 In the final analysis, our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children's futures. And we are all mortal.
21 We shall do our part to build a world of peace where the weak are safe and the strong are just. We are not helpless before the task or hopeless of its success. Confident and unafraid, we must labor on - not towards a strategy of annihilation but towards a strategy of peace.
22 [6/10/63, in a commencement address] The United States, as the world knows, will never start a war. We do not want a war. We do not now expect a war. This generation of Americans has already had enough--more than enough--of war and hate and oppression.
23 [Harry S. Truman] regards an open convention as one which studies all the candidates, reviews their records and then takes his advice.
24 Let us never negotiate out of fear, but let us never fear to negotiate.
25 [Ten days before his assassination] The high office of President has been used to foment a plot to destroy the American's freedom, and before I leave office I must inform the citizen of his plight.
26 [on Marlon Brando] The greatest womanizer who ever set foot in Hollywood.
27 [9/12/62, speech at Rice University, Houston, TX] We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to measure and organize the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.
28 All my life I've known better than to depend on the experts.
29 [Richard Nixon]'s a conservative . . . and if he became President, we could expect Republican policy would switch to the right , , , He is a filthy, lying son-of-a-bitch, and a very dangerous man.
30 Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.
31 Victory has a thousand fathers but defeat is an orphan.
32 I am certain that after the dust of centuries has passed over our cities, we, too, will be remembered not for victories or defeats in battle or in politics but for our contributions to the human spirit.
33 [6/26/63, speech in West Berlin, Germany] Two thousand years ago the proudest boast was "Civis Romanus sum". Today, in the world of freedom, the proudest boast is "Ich bin ein Berliner". All free men, wherever they may live, are citizens of Berlin, and, therefore, as a free man, I take pride in the words "Ich bin ein Berliner!".
34 Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.
35 Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
36 [1/30/61, State of the Union address] In a very real sense, it will not be one man going to the moon . . . it will be an entire nation. For all of us must work to put him there.
37 [1/20/61 inaugural address, on joint US/Soviet scientific ventures] Let both sides seek to invoke the wonders of science instead of its terrors.
38 [5/25/61, in a special address to Congress] I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the Earth.
39 Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.
