Jason Ogden Buck (born July 27, 1963) is a former professional football player, a defensive lineman in the National Football League. He played high school football for South Fremont in St. Anthony, Idaho, and college football at Brigham Young, where he won the Outland Trophy as a senior in 1986. Buck was selected in the first round of the 1987 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals, the 17th overall pick. He recorded six sacks in the 1988 season as well as in the 1989 season. After four seasons with the Bengals, Buck moved to the Washington Redskins in 1991. His career there was less accomplished, although he did earn a Super Bowl ring in the team's 37-24 victory over the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXVI. He retired as a player following the 1993 season.

Buck was a co-owner of the Utah Blaze of the Arena Football League, based in Salt Lake City, Utah and is also a public speaker. He sought the Republican nomination for the 2nd District in the United States House of Representatives elections in Utah, 2012 but was defeated in the primary.

His son Tyson is currently a linebacker for the University of Utah Utes football team.
