The JS Jack was inspired by John F. Kennedy. Between the escalating threat of war and the social rights movement, JFK entered the presidency during a tumultuous time in U.S. history. With any political figure, it’s easy to point out flaws and mistakes based on personal ideology and political views, but JFK’s contribution was far greater than any political accomplishments we may credit him. He brought hope and optimism to the American public with his positive attitude and message for peace. He called upon us to be our best by working together, and he inspired many, just as he still does today.
