Jesus Rosario Sablan (born April 16, 1952) is a Northern Mariana Islands politician. Sablan served as the Lieutenant Governor of the Northern Mariana Islands from January 12, 1998, until January 14, 2002, under former Governor Pedro Tenorio.
Sablan ran as a Republican candidate for Governor in the 2001 gubernatorial election. However, he was defeated in the Republican primary election by Juan Babauta, who went on to win the general election in November 2001. Though some observers expected Sablan to pursue a campaign for Governor as an indpedenent or a write-in candidate, Sablan ultimately withdrew from the race after the Republican primary.
