John Alfred Stewart Jackson (27 December 1898 in Valparaíso, Chile – 13 March 1958 in Santiago, Chile) was a Chilean cricketer. A right-handed batsman and right-arm leg spin bowler, he played seven times for the Chile national cricket team against Argentina between 1922 and 1938. Earlier in his career, he played county cricket for Somerset.
In the 1920 English cricket season while at Cambridge University, Jackson made his first-class debut playing against Cambridge University for Somerset. He then played four matches for the University side, but did not gain his blue in their annual match against Oxford University. He then played 13 County Championship matches for Somerset, in addition to one match for the Gentlemen of England against the Combined Services.
Back in his native Chile, he first played for the national side in December 1922, playing twice against Argentina. He played five more times in matches against Argentina, his last match coming on 29 December 1938, when he found himself on the opposing side to his brother Alfred who was playing for Argentina and had also played for Chile earlier in his career.
