Jack Ferriter is a former Gaelic footballer from Dingle, County Kerry. He was a star of many Kerry underage teams in the 90's with both Dingle CBS, Dingle GAA, and Kerry (Minor, U-21, Junior, and Senior). He was described as a 'star' and a 'teen sensation' when Kerry won an All Ireland Minor title in 1994 with him as captain, and until 2014 was the last Kerry man to do so. He subsequently added two Under 21 titles in 1995 and 1996 with Kerry.

Ferriter was extremely unlucky with a serious shoulder injury which curtailed a highly promising senior career with Kerry at a relatively early age. However, he did play in the National League from 1996 to 1999. He also starred on the Tralee IT teams that won Sigerson Cups in 1998 and 1999. Ferriter was awarded the Player of the Tournament in the Sigerson Cup competition of 1998. He played his club football with Dingle and later Bishopstown in Cork. Ferriter has also played in the United States with Shannon Blues GAA (Boston) and St Barnabas GAA (New York).
