Jeffrey Alexandre Rousseau (December 22, 1852 – June 22, 1927) was a Canadian politician.

The son of Alexandre Rousseau and Marie Proteau,[1] Rousseau was elected to the Canadian House of Commons for the Quebec electoral district of Champlain in the 1900 federal election. A Liberal, he was re-elected in the 1904 election and was defeated in the 1911 election.

Rousseau was a merchant, farmer, manufacturer and banker. He served as mayor of Sainte-Anne-de-la-Pérade from 1890 to 1896 and from 1904 to 1905. He was married twice: to Hélène-Catherine Hamelin in 1882 and to Corinne Dufresne in 1886.[1]

Rousseau served in the militia during the Fenian raids and later served as lieutenant-colonel for the 4th Regiment of the Chasseurs Canadiens.
