Jack W. Williams (31 January 1902 - 14 October 1976)[1] was an Australian rules footballer who played with Geelong in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Local boy Jack Williams played his first season in 1925 and finished the year in Geelong's inaugural preimership winning side. He spent most of his career either on a wing or across halfback and played in another premiership in 1931. Williams represented the Victorian interstate team on one occasion. He retired in 1934 but returned to Geelong in 1945 as coach for a season, which brought just two wins.
