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.
