Blessed Jules Chevalier (March 15, 1824 – October 21, 1907) was a French Roman Catholic priest and founder of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart and Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Roman Catholic religious institutes, and the inspiration for the members of the Chevalier Family.

Born in Richelieu, France, he was initially apprenticed as a shoemaker at age 12 after he was told his parents could not afford to sent him to the seminary. He was later able to join the seminary, after his father's boss sponsored him and at the age of 30 was sent to the parish of Issoudun. In 1854 he founded the religious institute of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, and in 1874 the Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart.[1]
