Kennedy was born in Brighton, Massachusetts, on October 4, 1980, to Sheila Brewster (Rauch) (b. 1949) and Joseph P. Kennedy II. He arrived eight minutes after Matthew, his fraternal twin brother. Senator Robert F. Kennedy and Ethel Kennedy’s eldest grandsons are the twins. They grew up in Brighton and Marshfield, Massachusetts, on the shore, and spent their summers on Cape Cod. Kennedy was raised in a political family; his parents worked on the presidential campaign of the boys’ great-uncle, U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy, in 1980. In 1986, Kennedy’s father was elected to Congress. In 1991, his parents split.
The twins spent the next few years bouncing back and forth between Brighton and Cambridge. Kennedy and his brother enrolled at Stanford University after graduating from Buckingham Browne & Nichols School in Cambridge. Kennedy majored in management science and engineering. Kennedy’s teetotal status gained him the nickname “Milkman” among his college teammates, who would playfully order him glasses of milk at bars. Kennedy was a member of the Kappa Alpha Order fraternity at Stanford and roomed with future NBA player Jason Collins.
Kennedy joined the Peace Corps after graduation in 2003, and from 2004 to 2006, he worked in the Dominican Republic’s Puerto Plata province, assisting local tour guides in the 27 Charcos reserve in the Ro Damajagua Park.
