As the son of an iconic president, John F. Kennedy Jr was born famous but worked to become his own man. Hear his story from the people closest to him in "I Am JFK Jr."
As the son of one of America's most beloved presidents, John F. Kennedy Jr. grew up in the public eye – yet there is much that remains unknown about the man who was famous since the day he was born and who became a national heartthrob.
Now, seventeen years after his tragic death in a plane crash, members of JFK Jr.'s inner circle are opening up for the first time about the all-too-human side of the friend they lost, in the intimate new documentary "I Am JFK Jr." for SPIKE TV.
The documentary delves into the life of John F. Kennedy Jr., featuring interviews and never-before-told stories from those who knew the president's son best – famous friends like Robert De Niro, Cindy Crawford and Mike Tyson; media stars like Christiane Amanpour and Chris Cuomo; his college roommates and his close friends and colleagues from JFK Jr.'s pioneering George magazine.
The White House was the first home John knew. The son of President John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy grew up in the public spotlight, with the White House being his first home. We will never forget the images 3-year-old JFK Jr. hiding under the Oval Office desk or saluting his assassinated father’s casket as it moved past the procession.
