Kaqusha Jashari (Serbian: Каћуша Јашари, Kaćuša Jašari) (born 1945 in Petrovac na Mlavi, Serbia, Yugoslavia) is a Kosovo Albanian politician and engineer. She is a member of the Assembly of Kosovo on the Democratic Party of Kosovo list since 2007. She is of Montenegrin descent on her mother's side.

From 1986 until November 1988, she and Azem Vllasi were the two leading Kosovo politicians. In November 1988, they were both dismissed in the "anti-bureaucratic revolution" because of their unwillingness to accept the constitutional amendments curbing Kosovo's autonomy, and were replaced by proxies of Slobodan Milošević, the leader of the League of Communists of Serbia at the time. In May 1988 Jashari replaced Azem Vllasi as the President of the Provential Committee of the League of Communists of Kosovo.[1] On 17 November 1988, Jashari and Vllasi were forced to resign and Rahman Morina was elected President of the Provential Committee on 27 January 1989 by the Presidium of the Provential Committee.[2] They were both dismissed because of their unwillingness to accept the constitutional amendments curbing Kosovo's autonomy, and were replaced by proxies of Slobodan Milošević, the leader of the League of Communists of Serbia at the time.

After that, she was president of the Social Democratic Party of Kosovo (PSDK) from 1991 until 2008,[3] when she was succeeded by the former prime minister and Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) guerilla leader Agim Çeku.
