Jesse Greer (August 26, 1896 – October 4, 1970 New York City) was an American Broadway songwriter. His musical Shady Lady was staged in 1933 with additional music by Sam H. Stept. Greer composed "Just You, Just Me" for the 1929 musical film Marianne with lyrics by Raymond Klages, as well as "Kitty from Kansas City", "Gonna Meet My Sweetie Now" and "Baby Blue Eyes".
The Dining Hall of the June Norcross Webster Scout Reservation in Ashford, Connecticut, is named in his honor.
