Jason Horn (born c. 1973) is a former All-American defensive tackle who played for the Michigan Wolverines football team from 1992 to 1995. Horn grew up on a farm near Lafayette, Indiana, and joined the Wolverines in 1992. Horn played in 48 games over four years at the University of Michigan, compiling 169 tackles, 18 tackles for loss (for -136 yards), and 24 sacks (for -184 yards). He was named a first-team All-American by the American Football Coaches Association in 1995. He was a two-time first team All-Big Ten selection. In 1995, Horn had 11 sacks and 18 tackles for a loss, setting a Michigan single season record with 122 yards of tackles for loss yardage. He finished as Michigan's second all-time leader in quarterback sacks (24), third in sack yardage (184), third in career tackles for loss (39) and second in tackles for loss yardage (236).

In November 1995, "the digital Collegian" published an article describing Horn as "a major part of the Wolverine defense's soul." The article also described Horn as a joker who "gives interviews between bites of a bacon double cheeseburger." When asked about the style of Michigan's defense, Payne responded: "We beat the snot out of 'em." The pairing of Horn and Jarrett Irons was said to "cause Big Ten coaches to reach for the Tylenol."
