Jeffrey Kenneth Moss (born 29 June 1947, Melbourne, Victoria) is a former Australian cricketer who played in one Test and one One Day International (ODI) in 1979.

An opening batsman, Moss made his first-class cricket debut for Victoria in 1976/77 and was a steady contributor for Victoria without attracting the interest of national selectors until Australia lost many of its leading players to World Series Cricket (WSC). Moss was picked for the last Test of the 1978-79 series against Pakistan. However he was not selected for the subsequent 1979 tour of India, and dropped out of contention altogether when the WSC players returned to test cricket for the summer of 1979-80.

Moss was the oldest Australian to make his Test debut until broken by George Bailey in November 2013.[1]
