Félix Pierre Jousseaume (12 April 1835 Charente-Maritime – 3 November 1921) was a French zoologist and malacologist. He studied medicine in Paris where he then practised. His thesis was Des Végétaux parasites de l'Homme. He participated in the founding of the Société zoologique de France and was President of that society in 1878.

After 1890 he abandoned his practise to study malacology. He made many trips to the Red Sea, giving his collections to the Muséum national d'histoire naturelle.

Jousseaume wrote many short scientific papers mainly published in- Naturaliste, revue illustrée des sciences naturelles, les Nouvelles archives des missions scientifiques et littéraires, la Revue et magasin de zoologie, and le Bulletin de la Société zoologique de France. He also wrote in 1899 La Philosophie aux prises avec la Mer Rouge, le darwinisme et les 3 règnes des corps organisés (A. Maloine, Paris : xii + 559 p.), in 1907 De l'Attraction et autres joyeusetés de la science (A.
