Jerome Karle (born June 18, 1918) is an American Jewish physical chemist. He was born in New York City and attended Abraham Lincoln High School in Brooklyn.

Jointly with Herbert A. Hauptman he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1985.

He received his bachelor's degree from the City College of New York in 1937, a master's degree from Harvard University in 1938, and a PhD from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 1944.

He worked on the Manhattan Project with his wife Dr. Isabella Karle (one of the youngest scientist and few women on the project) at the University of Chicago. As of July 2006, Dr. Karle and his wife continue to work at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC.
