John F. Kennedy, Jr. (1960-1999)

John F. Kennedy, Jr., was born a few weeks after his father, John F. Kennedy, was elected president in 1960. He was the first infant to live in the White House since Ester Cleveland was born in 1893. John never sought a life in politics, becoming a publisher and philanthropist instead. As a boy, his nickname was "John-John." He died tragically in a plane crash in 1999.

Fun Fact: John-John's code name from the secret service was Lark.

Next: Amy Carter (1967-)
