Jesse Beryle "Jess" Hahn (October 29, 1921 - June 29, 1998) was an American-born actor and musician from Indiana.

He served in the Marines during World War II, then took residence in France once the war was over, eventually taking French citizenship.

He starred in several film noirs and westerns. Due to his stout build, he was frequently cast in "strong man" roles in French movies, such as in Cartouche and Topkapi. His distinctive American accent when talking in French was used for humorous effects in some films such as Les Barbouzes.
