Jeffrey “Jeff” Houser is a retired American soccer forward who played professionally in the USL A-League.

Houser attended the University of Tampa, playing on the men’s soccer team in 1995 and 1996.[1] He transferred to the University of South Florida for the 1997 and 1998 seasons. In 1999, Houser turned professional with the Lehigh Valley Steam in the USL A-League. In 2000, he tore his anterior cruciate ligament during a pre-season tryout with the Kansas City Wizards.[2] This forced him to sit out the 2000 season. In 2001, he returned to the field with the Nashville Metros of the USL A-League. He finished the season tied for third on the league goals list.[3] He finished his injury-shortened, three-year professional career with the Pittsburgh Riverhounds in 2002.
