JFK's Only Grandson Channels His Uncle John Jr. at a Charity Race

The resemblance is uncanny.

Jack Kennedy Schlossberg looks more like his uncle every time we see him. Over the weekend, the only grandson of JFK sported John Jr.'s signature look while paddle-boarding around Manhattan for charity.

Flowing hair pulled back in a headband, Schlossberg participated in the Sea Paddle, a 25-mile race around the island that raises funds for environmental preservation and several autism non-profits. He garnered sponsorships from friends and family by offering to write whatever they wanted on his race shirt in exchange for a donation.

Fortunately for us (less so for those sponsors), Schlossberg lost his shirt partway through the event, and photos of his shirtless competition are featured in this week's New York Magazine.

"With beet juice pulsing through my veins and electrolytes and Gu packs strapped to my back, I took to the East River" Schlossberg said of the big event. "I can’t remember very much from the race day. The coffee, adrenaline, exhaustion, and Elvis hits blasting in my ears must have inhibited memory formation."
