Marion Hall Jessup (née Zinderstein) (May 6, 1896 – August 14, 1980) was a female tennis player from the United States. At the 1924 Paris Olympics she won a silver medal in the Mixed doubles event partnering Vincent Richards.
Marion Zinderstein twice reached the singles finals of the U.S. National Championships. In 1919 she defeated reigning champion Molla Bjurstedt from Norway in the semifinals in straight sets but was then soundly defeated by compatriot Hazel Hotchkiss Wightman in the final, 1–6, 2–6. A year later, 1920, Bjurstedt revenged her earlier semifinal defeat and Zinderstein again suffered a heavy loss in the final, 3–6, 1–6.
In 1979, Jessup was inducted into the Delaware Sports Museum and Hall of Fame.
