Is Jake Auchincloss Related To Jackie Kennedy?
Jake Auchincloss is indirectly related to Jackie Kennedy. Here’s how:
Jackie Kennedy was born to John Vernou Bouvier III and Janet Lee Bouvier. But, her parent’s marriage ended in a public divorce.
Afterward, Jackie’s mother remarried Hugh Dudley Auchincloss Jr, a famous stockbroker, and lawyer. He had five children from his three marriages.
One of his children was Hugh Dudley Auchincloss III, Jackie’s stepbrother.
Now, Jake Auchincloss’s father’s name is also Hugh Auchincloss. So, there were queries if he’d see any relation to the Kennedy family after he succeeded Joe Kennedy III.
But, Jake’s father is a different Hugh, and he is an immunologist.
Nevertheless, Jake’s grandfather, Hugh Auchincloss Sr., is the first cousin-once-removed of the stockbroker Hugh Auchincloss who married Janet Bouvier, Jackie’s mother.
Hence, this makes them indirectly related.
