John Fitzgerald Kennedy (May 29, 1917 – November 22, 1963) was the 35th President of the U.S., serving from 1961 until his death in 1963. He was commonly known by his nickname Jack or his initials, JFK. He narrowly defeated Richard Nixon, and in fact, there was early talk of a recount, but Nixon nixed the idea "for the good of the country." Prior to his term as President, he served in both houses of Congress. During his short term in office, he grappled with the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missile Crisis. He was shot by Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963.
