Jack Vosti (25 April 1903 - 10 September 1977)[1] was an Australian rules footballer who played for Essendon and Footscray in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Vosti started his VFL career in 1925 with Essendon. He was used in those days as a forward and topped Essendon's goalkicking in 1927 after kicking 35 goals. The following season saw him moved to fullback and it was in that position that he played his best football. He finished 2nd in Essendon's 1929 best and fairest award. From 1927 until 1930 he was a regular at full back for Victoria at interstate football. His career ended with a stint at Footscray before a knee injury forced him to retire.
