Clark Jolley is a Republican United States politician from the U.S. state of Oklahoma and is the former Appropriations Chairman for the Oklahoma Senate.

Born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Jolley graduated from Del City High School in 1988 and earned Music Education and Political Science degrees from Oklahoma Baptist University in Shawnee, Oklahoma in 1992. He received his J.D. from the University of Oklahoma in 1995.

After graduating from the University of Oklahoma Jolley established a private law practice and went on to serve an Administrative Law Judge for the Oklahoma Department of Labor. He was also a Barrister member of the Robert J. Turner American Inn of Court.

Jolley was first elected to the Oklahoma Senate from District 41, which included large portions of Edmond, north Oklahoma City and southern Logan County. He was re-elected in 2008 and again in 2012. After the redistricting in 2011 (which Jolley co-chaired), District 41 included areas of Edmond, north Oklahoma City and Arcadia in Oklahoma County.

Jolley was elected by his colleagues to serve as Republican Whip in 2007-08 and then elected to the office of Assistant Majority Leader in 2009. He was re-elected to the Assistant Majority Leader position until he resigned in 2012 after he was appointed the Chairman of Appropriations.
