Leslie Burnell "Les" Jepsen (born June 24, 1967) is a retired American professional basketball player who played in the National Basketball Association during the early 1990s.[1]

A 7'0" center, Jepsen played at Bowbells High School in North Dakota and at The University of Iowa. He was part of George Raveling's recruiting class at The University of Iowa in 1985 which included B.J. Armstrong, Roy Marble, Ed Horton and Kevin Gamble. All five recruits went on to play in the NBA.

Jepsen was selected 28th overall in the 1990 NBA draft by the Golden State Warriors where he played the 1990–91 season under Don Nelson before being traded along with Mitch Richmond to the Sacramento Kings for Billy Owens on November 1, 1991[2] (shortly before the opening day of the 1991–92 season).
