Jesse Pennington (August 23, 1883 - September 5, 1970) was an English footballer in the early part of the 20th century.

Born in West Bromwich, Pennington was a left-back for West Bromwich Albion F.C. for 19 years, from March 1903 to May 1922. Although his career was interrupted by World War I, Pennington made 455 league appearances for the club, captaining them to the league title in 1920. He had also been a part of the team promoted from the Second Division in 1911 and had received an FA Cup runners-up medal in 1912.

On the international front, Pennington earned 25 caps for England between March 18, 1907 and April 10, 1920, captaining the side on one occasion.

After retiring, he worked as a scout for West Bromwich Albion from 1950 to 1960 and was made a life member of the club in 1969, a year before he died in Kidderminster.
