John Ellis "Jebby" Bush, Jr. (born December 13, 1983) is the younger son of Jeb Bush, former Governor of Florida, and Columba Bush, his mother of Mexican origin. Born and raised in metro Miami, Florida, Jeb Jr. attended The Bolles School, a private boarding and day school in Jacksonville and he attended The University of Texas at Austin. His older siblings are George P. Bush and Noelle Bush.
Jeb Jr. has received media attention on two occasions: in 2000, at age 16, he was caught having sex in a Tallahassee, Florida, mall parking lot with a 17-year-old girl. No charges were filed. On September 16, 2005, he was arrested and charged with public intoxication and resisting arrest on the street corner near the popular Sixth Street in Austin, Texas. His father responded that this was a "personal family matter" which was being handled privately.
Jeb volunteered on his father's 2002 campaign for governor.
He works in commercial real estate with Fairchild Partners in the Miami area.
Wednesday, Mitt Romney added Congressman Connie Mack to his stable of support in Florida.
Today, Republican rival Rudy Giuliani came back with a Bush -- Jeb Bush Jr., to be precise.
Bush, the youngest son of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and President Bush's nephew, will be chairman of Florida Young Professionals for Rudy and will focus on recruiting professionals to the campaign and on grassroots efforts in South Florida.
"As someone who grew up around politics and candidates, I know that Rudy has the leadership qualities and unmatched experience to be the next president of the United States. I'm honored to join his campaign and look forward to working with the many young professionals throughout Florida supporting the mayor," Bush said in a statement provided by the Giuliani campaign.
