Jack Brown Lowry (25 November 1916 – 5 February 2007)[1] was an Australian rules footballer who played with St Kilda in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Before he made his VFL debut, Lowly represented Victoria in a first-class cricket fixture against Tasmania at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. He scored 62 in his first innings and was run-out for just three in his next.[2]

A former Melbourne High School student, he started his football career at Prahran, where he was a premiership player and won a VFA Medal in 1937. On the back of this effort Lowry was signed by St Kilda and he made his debut in the opening game of the 1938 season. He spent nine years playing at St Kilda but suffered from constant injuries, restricting him to just 53 senior appearances.
