Jesse Marsh was an American comics artist, writer, and animator, who worked on films, shorts, and comics for Disney.

Born in Alabama, Marsh alternated between writing cartoon shorts for the company as well as contributed storyboards to films, such as Make Mine Music and Melody Time, and developed numerous projects that were never produced, like Don Quixote and One More Spring. He left the studio during the late 1940s.

Outside of Disney, he was well known for work on the early Tarzan and related books for Western Publishing that saw print through Dell Comics from 1948 to 1965, becoming the first artist to produce original Tarzan comic books. He also worked on the Gene Autry comic book for many years.

He retired in 1965 due to failing health and died on April 28, 1966. In 2009, Dark Horse Comics announced an archive reprint series of his work on Tarzan entitled Tarzan: The Jesse Marsh Years. Volumes of the series were released up to 2012.
