Jillian "Jill" Brothers (born May 20, 1983) as Jill Mouzar [pronounced "MOW-zer") is a Canadian curler. Mouzar was born in Liverpool, Nova Scotia and now resides in Bedford, Nova Scotia.

Brothers started curling in Liverpool, Nova Scotia. Her first Nova Scotia junior championship was in 2001, along with Meaghan Smart, Meghan MacAdams, Carolyn Marshall, and coach Albert Smart. This team was the first Liverpool team to curl at the national level since 1970, representing Nova Scotia at the 2001 Canadian Junior Curling Championships.

In 2004, Brothers curled with Paige Mattie, Blisse Comstock, Chloe Comstock, and coach Donalda Mattie and went on to win the Canadian Junior Women's championship.[1] That team won the silver medal at world junior championships in Trois-Rivières, Québec.

In 2005 Brothers' women's team finished fourth out of eight teams at Nova Scotia women's championships in her first year of eligibility.

Brothers won her first provincial women's championship in 2007 and represented Nova Scotia at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Lethbridge, Alberta[2] with team mates Meredith Harrison, Teri Lake, and Hayley Clarke. They finished with a 3-8 record.

Brothers played lead for Nova Scotia (skipped by Mark Dacey) at the 2010 Canadian Mixed Curling Championship, an event which she won.

In 2010, Brothers moved to Ontario and begun playing for Kirsten Wall as the team's lead. In 2012, the team broke up, and Wall left the rink, and Brothers was promoted from lead to skip. Brothers qualified for her first Ontario provincial in 2013. Following the season, Brothers moved back to Nova Scotia to play third for Heather Smith.
