Jack is a common nickname for John and it is what his family called him when he was growing up.

Yeah, it was common for people of that generation to use Jack as nickname if they were named John.

Richard Nixon's nickname was Dick.

William Clinton's nickname was Bill.

Dwight Eisenhower's nickname was Ike

etc...

His Brother Edward Kennedy was known as Ted.

Ted can also be a nickname for Theodore...like Teddy Roosevelt.
