James 'Jim' Jackson (born 28 April 1890) was an Australian rules footballer who played with St Kilda, Collingwood and Hawthorn in the VFL.

Jackson was a wingman and had a long career with 17 years between his first and last season. He started his career at St Kilda in 1909 but after managing just one game crossed to Collingwood the following year. Unlucky not to play in a premiership team during his time at the Magpies, he was on military service when they won in 1917 and 1919. He finished his career at Hawthorn, firstly in the VFA and then when the club joined the VFL in 1925 when he was appointed their inaugural captain.

In 1932 Jackson returned to Hawthorn as their non-playing coach but the Hawks finished with just three wins and the wooden spoon.
