Jeanette Lee (born Lee Jin-Hee, Hangul: 이진희, July 9, 1971 in Brooklyn, New York) is an American professional pool player. She was nicknamed "the Black Widow" by her friends because of how, in spite of her sweet demeanor, she would "eat people alive" when she got to a pool table. Jeanette is an American of Korean descent.
Lee started playing pool in 1989. She went on to rank as the No. 1 female pool player in the world during the 1990s, and received the Women's Professional Billiard Association (WPBA) Sportsperson of the Year Award in 1998. She was three times runner-up at the World Nine-ball Championships (women's), from 1993-96. In addition to many top finishes on the WPBA Tour, she won the gold medal for the United States at the 2001 World Games in Akita, Japan, and won the ladies' US$25,000 winner-take-all Tournament of Champions twice, in 1999 and 2003. Lee also wrote The Black Widow's Guide to Killer Pool.
