Litesa Wallace (born 1977/78) is a Democratic member of the Illinois House of Representatives. She has represented the Rockford-based 67th district since her appointment in July 2014 to replace the outgoing State Representative Chuck Jefferson.[2][3]

Wallace is running for Lieutenant Governor of Illinois in the Democratic primary alongside State Senator Daniel Biss, replacing Biss's initial pick Chicago alderman Carlos Ramirez-Rosa.[4] In a video announcing the joint ticket, Wallace commented that she and Biss had both "fought for childcare assistance, a $15 minimum wage, to expand healthcare, and to make millionaires pay their fair share."[5]
