Robert F. Jeaudoin (January 8, 1948 - September 30, 2012) was an American professional wrestler, best known under the ring name of "Hangman" Bobby Jaggers. Most of his renown as a wrestler came from his appearances in various National Wrestling Alliance-affiliated promotions. In particular, he found his greatest success in Championship Wrestling from Florida and Pacific Northwest Wrestling, the latter near his hometown of Vancouver, Washington. His wrestling gimmick was of a cowboy from Kansas, where he spent the later years of his life.

Born Robert F. Jeaudoin in Vancouver, Bobby Jaggers attended Hudson's Bay High School. In December 1966, he joined the United States Army and spent a year and a half in Vietnam. He was in the "A" Battery of the 1/30 Artillery 1st Cavalry, and fought in battles in Hue, Khe Saah, A-Shau Valley, and the Tet offensive. Upon returning home, he worked at a NABISCO cookie factory in Washington, until he met Sandy Barr, whom he credited for saving his life. Jeaudoin suffered after Vietnam, so when Barr asked him if he wanted to be a wrestler, he immediately said yes.
