Sir John Jackson (4 February 1851 – 14 December 1919) was a Unionist Member of Parliament for Devonport, from 1910–18, retiring from politics when his constituency was merged into another.

Born at York, he worked in Newcastle before studying engineering at Edinburgh University under Peter Guthrie Tait. On Tait's death in 1901 Jackson endowed a research fund named after him.
