George Prescott Bush is the eldest of three children of Florida governor Jeb Bush. (He's also the nephew of president George W. Bush and the grandson of president George Bush the elder.) He is often called simply "George P." Bush campaigned for his uncle during the 2000 presidential campaign; his good looks and Hispanic heritage (his mother, Columba, was born in Mexico) made him a popular figure with younger voters. George P. Bush's speech at the 2000 GOP convention earned him comparisons to another political heir, the late John Kennedy Jr. Bush has an undergraduate degree from Rice University and earned a law degree from the University of Texas in 2003. On 7 August 2004 he married a law school classmate, Amanda Williams.

Extra credit:

George Prescott Bush shares a name with his great-grandfather, Prescott Bush... According to an April 18, 2000 article in the New York Times, "In 1988, when he was 12, [George P.] was an unwitting participant in a short-lived hullabaloo about the way his grandfather, then the vice president, introduced him and his two Mexican-American siblings to President Reagan. Vice President Bush affectionately called them 'the little brown ones.'"
