Jason Cripps (born 14 October 1976) is a former Australian rules footballer who played with St Kilda in the Australian Football League (AFL).
Cripps was often used as a tagger but also played in defence. He played in the Saints' losing 1997 Grand Final team and in 1998 suffered a serious hamstring injury which saw the muscle torn off the bone. As a result he did not return to football until 2001, kicking a goal with his first kick back. He was delisted at the conclusion of the 2002 season.

In 2015 he suffered a heart attack whilst out jogging in Perth. He was in Perth with the other Power's recruiting staff to watch the NAB AFL Under-18 Championships.
