We're taking a look back on the life of an American icon.
When Jaqueline Bouvier married John F. Kennedy in 1953, she became the other half of a society couple that was envied and idolized the world over. Soft-spoken and supremely stylish, Jackie first earned international fame as her husband's reluctant companion on the campaign trail. The two brought youth and optimism to the White House, but it was images of the First Lady and her young children bidding farewell to JFK after his tragic assassination that cemented the Kennedy legacy in history, making them iconic political and public figures for years to come. Beyond her life as a Kennedy, Jackie reinvented herself in her second marriage to Aristotle Onassis in 1968, and later embarked on her second chapter as a book editor in New York.
Now, more than 25 years after she passed away from Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma at age 64, we're taking a look back on the remarkable life of Jaqueline Kennedy Onassis.
