Carol E. Jackson (born 1952) is a United States federal judge.

Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Jackson received a B.A. from Wellesley College in 1973 followed by a J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School in 1976. She was in private practice in St. Louis from 1976 to 1983, and was then a senior attorney of Mallinckrodt, Inc., in St. Louis, from 1983 to 1985. In 1986, Jackson was hired by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri to be a United States magistrate judge, a position which allowed her to carry out many functions of a federal judge but not requiring an appointment by the President of the United States. During this time she was also an adjunct professor at the Washington University School of Law from 1989 to 1992.

On April 1, 1992, Jackson was nominated by President George H. W. Bush to a seat on the Eastern District of Missouri vacated by William L. Hungate. She was confirmed by the United States Senate on August 12, 1992, and received her commission on August 17, 1992. She became the first woman to serve as a district court judge in the Eastern District of Missouri. She served as Chief Judge from 2002 through 2009.
