Jean Heather (February 21, 1921 – October 29, 1995) was an American actress who featured in eight feature films during the 1940s.

Her most remembered role is likely from the classic 1944 crime drama Double Indemnity, in which she played Lola Dietrichson, a young woman convinced that her stepmother Phyllis (Barbara Stanwyck) is responsible for the murder of Lola's father.

Heather attended Oregon State University, 1940-41. She transferred to the University of Washington in 1942 and early in the war was named "Canteen Dream Girl of the Northwest," by Marine, Navy, Army and Coast Guard camps in Washington state.[1]
