Jack Lindquist (born March 15, 1927 in Chicago) served as the president of the Disneyland amusement park in Anaheim, California from 1990 until he retired in 1993. He was a Disney employee from 1955 until his retirement, and was a marketing executive in the theme parks division for almost thirty years, including a stint as the first advertising manager for Disneyland.

As a child actor, Lindquist appeared as an extra in several episodes of Our Gang, and appeared in the film Best Foot Forward with Lucille Ball.

After Lindquist retired, he received a commemorative window on Main Street, U.S.A., at Disneyland that reads J.B. Lindquist, Honorary Mayor of Disneyland. In 1994, he was named a Disney Legend.

In Disneyland's Mickey's Toontown, in the yard of Goofy's Playhouse, there is a pumpkin in the Jack-O-Lantern patch that has the face of Jack Lindquist to pay tribute to him.[1]
