Welcome… I am Jason Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe’s 2nd Cousin. I am currently updating the new MarilynMonroeFamily.com website. In the meantime, I have a major update: A new book has been published that begins to counter those whose intent was to corner Marilyn Monroe into a cage. This is how we begin to set her free. Thank you for your support!
The love story between Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio is a timeless tale. Both of these legends had extraordinary careers in their individual fields, as well as remarkable existences. This book chronicles each of their lives, from the days before they met, until that magical night in 1952 when their paths finally crossed. Their lives would never be the same after that. Though their marriage lasted for nine months, their love endured beyond those years and her death in 1962 — Joe’s heart yearned for no one else, even at his deathbed thirty-seven years after her untimely passing. This account shares of their love and focuses on their marriage in 1954, and their trip to Japan and her trip to Korea, during the nearly one month time span that the couple was in the Far East together. The author’s collections of rare and unpublished photographs (some never-before-seen), especially from their time in Japan and Marilyn’s in Korea (released in tandem with the sixtieth anniversary of their trip to the Far East), as well as memorabilia from both of the stars from the author’s collection, are treasures that accompany this story. This book weaves in elements about baseball, entertainment, the military, the tragedies of stardom, and above all, the love Marilyn and Joe shared. The story told here unveils other characters in the casts of both of their lives, including interviews with family members of Marilyn Monroe who run the “Marilyn Monroe Family” website, headed by Marilyn’s second cousin, Jason Edward Kennedy. This book begins to also debunk the myths and propaganda about the life and death of Marilyn Monroe. Additionally, controversy within Joe’s final days is also explored. Marilyn Monroe & Joe DiMaggio – Love In Japan, Korea & Beyond,” is the first book in the series endorsed by MarilynMonroeFamily.com, the website run by the relatives of William Marion Hogan, Marilyn Monroe’s great-uncle.
