Jesse O'Brien (born 13 February 1991) is a current Australian rules football player for the Brisbane Lions in the Australian Football League (AFL).

Recruited from North Adelaide Football Club,[1] he was selected with the Brisbane Lions' third selection (pick 73 overall) in the 2009 National Draft.[2] O'Brien played two pre-season matches for the Lions and then spent the first half of 2010 playing for the Lions reserves team.[1] He made his AFL debut in round 14 against Carlton, after showing more consistency for the reserves.[1][3] However, O'Brien was dropped the following week[4] and he failed to play another AFL match for the rest of the 2010 season.
