Jason Ferris (born 6 July 1976) is an Australian former professional rugby league footballer who played for six clubs between 1996 and 2005. He played at either halfback or five-eighth. He made his debut in 1996 for the Canberra Raiders in the round 3 match against Parramatta.[1]

In November 2009, Ferris was assaulted by two men at Glen Innes and required corrective facial surgery after the attack.[2] In 2010 Ferris was sentenced to at least 13 months in jail after he was convicted of stealing $7,500 from his former employers, the Criterion Hotel in Gundagai, in October 2009.[3] He was also charged with a mid-range drink driving offence and two offences of driving with a disqualified license. On appeal, he had his sentence downgraded.[4]
