Jason Ian Douglas Kerr (born 7 April 1974 in Bolton, Greater Manchester) is a former English cricketer, who is currently First XI Assistant and Bowling Coach at Somerset County Cricket Club.

An all-rounder, he played Right Hand Bat with a Right Arm Medium Fast bowling style. He played first-class cricket for Somerset from 1993, before moving to Derbyshire in 2001.

After back injury curtailed his career at the end of 2002, Bridgwater Cricket Club appointed Kerr as director of coaching in 2004 to spearhead their West of England Premier League promotion bid. He succeeded Ben Wellington, who resigned in early February 2004 because of his commitments as a full-time coach at Somerset's Centre of Excellence.[1] Kerr returned to Somerset as a self-employed coach in 2005, before taking up the Academy Directors post full-time in February 2006, replacing the ECB bound Kevin Shine.[2]
