Franz Jackson (November 1, 1912 – May 6, 2008) was a saxophonist and clarinetist of the Chicago jazz school.
Notable as one of the last surviving jazz artists to have recorded pre-1940, Jackson was still active well into his 90s in various Chicago jazz clubs (including "Joe's Bebop Café", and Andy's Jazz Club). In 1996, he received the Jazz Master Award from Arts Midwest.
