Perhaps no presidential son-in-law has ever been more in the spotlight than Jared Kushner. He was President-elect Donald Trump’s “de facto campaign manager” and helps run the executive committee of Trump’s tumultuous transition team. And rumors are swirling that Trump’s team is trying to get him top-secret security clearance so he can attend the official presidential daily briefings.

But here’s something you might not know: Jared Kushner’s younger brother, Joshua Kushner, is the cofounder of a startup created to capitalize on the promise of the Affordable Care Act — which Trump has vowed to move quickly to dismantle.


Josh Kushner is not some anonymous, graying health insurance executive. A 31-year-old venture capitalist on the fast track, he’s been called “a modern day Vanderbilt,” “the boy wonder VC,” and “your mother’s dream man.” He’s dating the supermodel Karlie Kloss, who’s perhaps best known as Taylor Swift’s best friend — and who posted a photo of herself on Instagram last week voting for Hillary Clinton, with the hashtag #ImWithHer.” (Josh Kushner reportedly didn’t vote for Trump either.)
