When her father was assassinated in 1963, Caroline moved with her mother and brother to Manhattan to live out of the spotlight. After earning a bachelor's degree from Harvard University, she attended law school at Columbia and graduated in 1988. Like John Jr., Caroline then went on to work in publishing—she interned for the New York Daily News and wrote for Rolling Stone—and even co-authored and authored several books. Then, in 1995, Caroline lost her mother Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis to cancer, which was followed by the tragic loss of her brother John in a plane crash in 1999.
In recent years, Caroline has become more active in politics, publicly endorsing President Obama and serving on his vice presidential search committee in 2008. Today, she lives in New York City with her husband, Edwin Schlossberg, and their three children.
