Jemeppe-sur-Meuse (Walloon: Djimepe-so-Mouze) is a section of the Belgian city of Seraing located in Wallonia, in the province of Liege. It was a separate municipality before the merging of municipalities in 1977. The inhabitants are about 10,000 and are called 'Jemeppians'.

This town is best known for its steel industry, and before 1960, its coal mines. The old town has three castles: Ordange Castle, Antoine Castle and Courtejoie Castle. It is also the moral center of the antoinism, at the antoinist temple.
