Jack Bennett (21 June 1920 - 26 May 1997)[1] was an Australian rules footballer who played for Carlton in the Victorian Football League (VFL) during the 1940s. Bennett was a member of the Carlton ruck and with his solid build liked to crash his way through packs. He played in Carlton's 1945 premiership team and was one of the best afield in their 1947 premiership in which he helped out in defence. The 1947 VFL Grand Final was the final game of his career.
