Jack Lester (2 May, 1891 - 1916) was an American heavyweight boxer. Born in Calumet, Michigan but raised in Cle Elum, Washington, Lester was born to Polish parents and originally named Jack Jubeck.

Lester's record was fairly unspectacular, though his knockout ratio in winning bouts was fairly high. His first manager was Harry Burns, but in 1910, ex-boxing champion Tommy Burns took Lester on. Tommy Burns sent Lester to Australia in 1911 to gain fight experience, and in September that year he beat Bill Lang, the Australian heavyweight champion, by points. While in Australia Lester and Burns's relationship became strained and Lester dropped Burns for Hugh MacIntosh. Lester spent the entirity of 1912 in Australia, but by March 1913 Lester was back in the States and fighting in California. Towards the end of his career he lost two matches to Light Heavyweight champion Jack Dillon.

After 1915 there are few reports on Lester, but the Ironwood Daily Globe of 1926 states that he died in 1916 at the age of 26.
