Jane Jamieson (born 23 June 1975) is a track and field athlete from Australia.

Jamieson has competed in the heptathlon in the Olympic Games, World Championships and Commonwealth Games finishing with Top 10 results at each level including a Gold Medal at the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester.

Since the 2000 Olympic Games, Jamieson has been hampered by a string of knee, hamstring and calf injuries and missed the 2004 Olympic Games due to injury.

Jamieson returned from injury to qualify for the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, but failed to complete the competition after suffering a calf strain to her left leg combining with the hamstring injury she suffered six weeks before the start of the Melbourne Games.

Despite the setbacks, Jamieson has signalled her desire to continue on to the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing and the 2010 Commonwealth Games in New Delhi.
