Krzysztof Jakub Putra ([ˈkʂɨʂtɔf ˈputra], July 4, 1957 – April 10, 2010) was a Polish politician, a member of the Law and Justice (PiS). He served as a Deputy of the Senate Marshal from October 27, 2005 until November 4, 2007. He later became a Sejm member (from November 5) and PiS candidate for Sejm Marshal.
A member of Solidarity during Communist rule, he was a worker in Białystok from 1975 to 1994. He was also a Sejm Member (Contract Sejm) from Solidarity (1989–1991).

He is known as one of the Party leader, in addition to serve as party leader in his home Podlaskie Voivodeship.
As one of the Deputies of the Senate Marshal he was regarded as a de facto leader of the upper house.

He was married and had eight children.
He was listed on the flight manifest of the Tupolev Tu-154 of the 36th Special Aviation Regiment carrying the President of Poland Lech Kaczyński which crashed near Smolensk North Airport airport near Pechersk near Smolensk, Russia, on 10 April 2010, killing all aboard.
