Jerry Harrison (born February 21, 1949) is the keyboardist of the influential New Wave group Talking Heads. Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, he played with Jonathan Richman in the Modern Lovers, first in Boston, then in Berkeley, California.

Harrison was the last of the four Talking Heads members to join that band; they already had a single out by the time he left Richman to join them.
