Charles Genois (c. 1793 – August 30, 1866) was the Mayor of New Orleans from May 1838 to May 1840. Genois's brief tenure has been characterized as feeble because of a stagnant period that followed the enterprise outbreak during his predecessor's term.[citation needed] However, Genois's administration started dealing with the consequences of the previous mayors' heavy borrowing, so reforms and improvements were postponed while a solution to financial troubles was found. The main event of Genois's term was the January 1840 dedication of the Jackson monument in the presence of Andrew Jackson.

Charles Genois is buried in New Orleans, Louisiana in St. Louis Cemetery No. 2.
