The John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum recently received an iconic statue of John F. Kennedy Jr. The statue depicts the historic image of young Kennedy Jr. as he saluted JFK’s coffin following his father’s funeral in Washington, D.C.

The statue was sculpted by Richard Amadeo in 2000 and has since remained with the Everett Public Schools as a symbol of hope for the future.

On May 19, 2014, the Everett School Committee voted to donate the John F. Kennedy Jr. statue to the JFK Hyannis Museum. The museum will hold a dedication ceremony on July 16, 2014 at 11:00am.

Senator Edward Kennedy commented on the statue in 2000, “The statue of John evokes great emotions for the Kennedy family and for the nation as a whole; it depicts his great patriotism, respect, and most of all, love for his father, President Kennedy.”

The John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum will hold an official dedication event for the John F. Kennedy Jr. statue on July 16 at 11:00am.
