Joseph Jaquet, sometimes written Joseph Jacquet, (30 January 1822 - 9 June 1898) was a Belgian sculptor.
He studied with Guillaume Geefs at the Brussels Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts and was the friend of Peter Ludwig Kühnen (1812–1877), a painter originating from Aachen, specialised in painting romantic landscapes.
He called from Antwerp to Brussels his brother Jacques (1830 - 1898) who assisted him throughout his lifetime. Jacques actively took part in sculpture by his own productions for the Brussels art salons of 1843, 1854, 1860, 1866, 1872 and 1873.[note 1]
For the 1842 Brussels Art Salon, Joseph Jaquet exhibited a marble bust, three plaster busts, a Moses Saved from the Waters and a Meditating Saint Paul which brought him notoriety.

In l879, Joseph Jaquet designed a statue of Louise of Orléans, first Queen of the Belgians: this statue was on the Place d'Armes in Philippeville then was moved to the old École moyenne, Namur street.
