Welcome to the Official Marilyn Monroe Website!  I am Jason Kennedy (LinkedIn profile), 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!

Coming soon…my new book about the SURGEON STORY.






In 1955 Marilyn Monroe wrote the “Surgeon Story” while staying at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City. It was written on Waldorf Astoria Hotel stationary. On it, she drew a stick figure falling from the hotel.

The Monroe Report


The FIRST REVIEW (by ‘THE MONROE REPORT’) of  ‘Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio, Love in Japan, Korea and Beyond’ by Author and Reporter Jennifer Jean Miller is OUT!

“Some Marilyn books are published with great fanfare and publicity
Some Marilyn books are announced and then the publication date pushed back several times.
And then there are some Marilyn books that just appear without warning, Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio – Love in Japan, Korea and Beyond by Jennifer Jean Miller is one of them…
….this book is well worth the price, the photos are amazing and when it comes down to it this is a love story albeit with a tragic ending.”

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 The author’s collections of rare and unpublished photographs (some never-before-seen), especially from their time in Japan and Marilyn’s in Korea (released in tandem with the sixtieth anniversary of their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.
