Generoso Charles "Jerry" Rullo (June 23, 1923 – October 21, 2016) was an American professional basketball player.

A 5 ft 10 in (1.78 m) guard from Temple University, Rullo played four seasons (1946–1950) in the Basketball Association of America/National Basketball Association as a member of the Philadelphia Warriors and Baltimore Bullets. He averaged 2.9 points per game in his career and won a league championship with Philadelphia in 1947.
