Jacob Ellison (born 25 February 1985) is a New Zealand rugby union footballer who plays for Otago in the ITM Cup. He is the younger brother of Tamati Ellison. Jacob plays the position of prop. He was born in Wellington. He has previously played for Wellington in the ITM Cup and the Hurricanes and Highlanders in Super Rugby.

Ellison made his Wellington debut in 2007 and his Hurricanes debut a year later. After four years with the Hurricanes, he played for the Highlanders in 2012. He was delisted at the end of the season after making only one competition appearance. Whilst he is a very mobile forward, having played as a loose forward in the past, he has often struggled to scrummage effectively at Super Rugby level.

Ellison is a graduate of Victoria University of Wellington. He is a member of Ngati Porou.
