Christine Bøe Jensen (born June 3, 1975 in Hammerfest) is a Norwegian former footballer and Olympic champion.

Jensen's first club was HIF-Stein in her native Finnmark. She later moved to Tromsø and turned out for Kvaløysletta and Fløya, before linking up with Grand Bodø. In 2000 she broke into the Norway women's national football team as a Grand Bodø player and was included in the gold medal-winning squad at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney.[2]

On the back of that success Jensen secured a transfer to Kolbotn in 2001. In 2002 she was top goalscorer with 19 as Kolbotn won the Toppserien title.[3] She later played for Manglerud Star and Vålerenga.[4][5]
