Jens Adler (born 25 April 1965) is a former German footballer.[1] He made one appearance for East Germany, as last-minute substitute for Jens Schmidt in their last game, a 2–0 win over Belgium, and so he is considered to be the last player ever to play for the German Democratic Republic.

Adler played for Hallescher FC for eleven seasons, either side of German reunification. He moved in 1996 to Hertha BSC but played very little, only finding himself playing in a single senior game, coming on as a substitute for Christian Fiedler in a match against KFC Uerdingen 05. He returned to Halle after one season, this time to sign for VfL Halle 96.

He retired from football in 2001 and returned to Hallescher FC to serve as goalkeeper coach.[2]
