Jacqueline Pelosi is better known as the daughter of Nancy Pelosi, an American politician serving as Speaker of the United States House of Representatives since 2019, and previously from 2007 to 2011.

Nancy Pelosi is the only woman in U.S. history to hold this position and is the highest-ranking female elected official in United States history.

Jacqueline Pelosi’s Early Life

Jacqueline Pelosi, born in 1968, is the third child of the current Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. When Jacqueline was just 20 months old, her family relocated to San Francisco, California. It is here that the young Ms. Pelosi would spend the majority of her childhood years.

She attended high school in San Francisco, graduating with her class. Soon after, Jacqueline began her college career at the University of Southern California. However, after just one year she decided to transfer to Georgetown University in Washington D.C.

Her mother, Nancy Pelosi has served in Congress representing parts of San Francisco for over 30 years. She made even bigger waves on the national political stage when she was elected as the first-ever female Speaker of the House, serving initially from 2007-2011, and returning to the role in 2019.

As Speaker, Nancy Pelosi is second in the line of presidential succession, directly after the Vice President. The prominent role has cemented Mrs. Pelosi’s status as not only the highest-serving female politician in US history but also one of the most influential House leaders of all time.

In addition to breaking glass ceilings herself, Nancy Pelosi also continued the family political dynasty, following in the footsteps of her father who served in Congress.
